High Tech Church Draws in Thousands of Members

Cascade Hills in Columbus comes complete with theatre style seating, concert quality sound and even a stage with big screens. It's all to draw the younger crowd into religion- and it seems to be working.

The church has over 7,000 members between the ages of 18-39. The draw is the contemporary themes used in the service. Last month the pastor drew parallels between the movie Matrix and real life.

"We speak to them in methods that they're used to. They watch TV, play video games, live off computers. The media environment is how they're used to getting their information and that's how we deliver ours," says TV Media Director Allen Matthews.

If you can't catch a service in person, the church also does a weekly TV show. It takes a crew of almost 15 people behind the scenes to put it on.
