Using Cooking Demos, Elephants to Fill the Pews

Listen to this NPR report about Fellowship of the Woodlands.

Church attendance in the United States is on the decline. But one young pastor is finding innovative ways to get people back into the pews. Among the strategies: live elephants and cooking demonstrations.

So far, the approach seems to be working — the Fellowship of the Woods in The Woodlands, Texas, now has more than 14,000 congregants.

Hank would like that church.
