Faith leaders are 'planting' churches in new fields

From Pittsburgh-

At a Friday night service in the unadorned sanctuary of CityReach Pittsburgh, a North Side church, men and women in jeans and T-shirts raised their hands and sang worship songs before watching a drama group depict Jesus healing the sick and exorcising demons.

On a Sunday morning in Garfield, participants of a church called the Open Door gathered at the church’s hilltop urban farm and mixed farming chores with the singing of hymns and the sharing of communion bread, baked on-site in a wood-fired oven.

On a Sunday evening in Troy Hill, refugee worshipers at Pittsburgh Myanmar Church called out prayers in the languages of Burma and sang hymns in the amped-up style of modern American praise bands.
