Why Salt Lake City? Christianity exists as a minority faith in Utah. It is the only state in the USA where less than 2% of residents are evangelical Christians (in Egypt it is 15%). A person would be more likely to meet a Christian in Iraq or Syria than Salt Lake.
Many cities in northern Utah have only 1 or 2 evangelical churches…several cities have none! In fact, Utah ranks 1st in the nation for number of congregations that are non-Christian and 1st for congregations of Latter Day Saints.
Salt Lake County boasts a population well over 1 million. The Wasatch Front is expected to grow by another million people over the next 15 years.
