A new report released today by Barna Research ranks America’s Most and Least Bible-minded Cities. Des Moines/Ames, Iowa rests at number 49; right in the middle of the pack. Looking at the list on the infographic provided with the report produced no real surprises. Cities in the deep south rank higher than cities in the Midwest and Northeast. Where does your city rank?
I think the report is helpful and reminds us to pray for our cities. We live in a day when we are tempted to be super impressed with the emergence of the super mega churches that boast thousands in attendance. Barna research reminds us that we still have a lot of Kingdom work to do. I don’t think we’re in danger of running out of unchurched people!
