Global Report: Latin America’s Megachurches

The next time you are in Buenos Aires, Argentina, after you stroll the city’s immense boulevards and have a steak at one of its fabulous restaurants, drop in on the worship service at the Ministry of Waves of Love and Peace. It’s easy to find. Take a bus or taxi up Rivadavia Avenue until you see the former Rock Theater, whose neon sign now reads “Jesus Christ is the Rock.” Don’t worry about being late: The church holds six or seven meetings every day, from 7 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Just join the line forming in the front lobby for the next service.
