No. 2: Second Baptist Church of Houston

Houston, Texas

Pastor: Edwin Young

Average weekly attendance: 24,000

Annual budget: $53 million

Pastor Edwin Young, 73, started the congregation 30 years ago with 300 people. Today he has five campuses to work with. Young says he continues to grow by focusing on youth; the church baptized 668 teenagers at a recent beach retreat. “Only churches reaching kids are really growing,” he says. “All the rest of it is really fluff.”
