The number of black churches in a given area varies depending on population and geographic location. The easiest way to find a list of black churches in a specific area is to use an online church directory, such as those provided on The Black Churches Network, BlackandChristian.com and Believe.com.
The Black Churches Network is the best resource for locating black Christian churches, because it offers a helpful location-based search feature. Users simply select their religious denomination, and the state they want to search. Clicking the Submit button returns a list of the nearest black churches for each denomination, if any exist within that state. If the name of a specific church or pastor is known, users can also enter that information to narrow down the results. For those who want to browse, the website offers a directory of black churches by state.
BlackandChristian.com does not have a search feature, but it does provide an extensive directory sorted by region within the United States, such as Midwestern, Southern and Western. Each region is divided into its respective states for easy browsing. The website also offers a few Global results, including churches in Canada, Europe and South America.
Believe.com does not exclusively feature black churches, but the website's search engine and state directory may list some black churches. The search tool here is similar to the search feature on The Black Churches Network, allowing users to search for churches by entering their denomination and location.
