A megachurch typically is a term that refers to a church with more than 2,000 weekly attendees. Catholic churches are usually not considered mega churches. Mega churches have drawn a lot of criticism for their focus on entertainment and drawing people away from smaller churches and tax exempt status. The current largest megachurch in the world is South Korea’s Yoido Full Gospel Church, with more than 830,000 members.
