The city of Atlanta boasts a rapidly growing impact nationwide. Home to the world’s busiest airport, a team in each major sports league, a budding film and television industry and an outpost for most Fortune 500 companies, the city is quickly becoming known as a hub of influence.
Though it sits in the biblically saturated South, the city itself is no longer considered to be the hub of the Bible Belt. Only a small percentage of the millions living inside the city’s perimeter have any inclination toward church. With a population of more than 5 million in the metro area, only 27 percent are considered evangelical believers, leaving millions that still need to know Christ.
