Ethiopian state bans small churches

The Ethiopian state of Amhara has banned small churches—inspiring the neighboring state of Tigray to consider a ban on ecclesial communities with under 6,000 members, as well as a ban on evangelization.

The moves come as Protestant churches make inroads in traditionally Ethiopian Orthodox areas, according to World Watch Monitor.
