Storefront Churches

You know, the ones you see that are no bigger than a barber shop with names like "Tabernacle of the Divine Christ" or "Jesus the Rock Ministries". Are these real churches or just a money making business for the minister.

Yes.

Mostly money laundering fronts.

I rented to a Mexican church. It was very odd. It's a real church, since they have services every day, but they do a lot of meals, like every night and every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and they're very into playing really horrible christian rock. They make a lot of noise. I know they were letting new arrivals sleep in the place, too.

I would say that it functioned as a social club as much or more than it did a church as we generally think of them.

There was a minister, but every month half the congregation would show up in person with wads of cash to pay the rent, and I got the feeling that the decisions were communal.

They moved to a larger building after a few years, and now they've bought a real church building the Baptists could no longer fill.

Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus!

Wait no they're actually huge. A scam nonetheless.

Read Nightmare Alley!
