Christians do not lack imagination when it comes to worshiping in the most inaccessible places, or the most improbable buildings.

Here’s a sample of 20 incredible churches all around the globe that bear witness to the fact Christians do not fall short of creativity when it comes to building worship sites, no matter where and how.
