Texas pastor opens drive-in church

A pastor outside Dallas has launched a drive-in church that operates along the same lines as a drive-in movie theater: Congregants stay in their vehicles and tune in to the sermon on their car radios.

Sanctuary Under the Sky, which meets in a high school parking lot in Lucas, Texas, is the third outdoor church launched by Pastor David Ray, according to CNN Dallas/Fort Worth affiliate WFAA.

Ray, a Presbyterian, told WFAA that he's trying to reach the unchurched and that he believes Jesus would approve of his approach.

"I think he would like it. His stuff was outdoors," Ray said. "A lot of trouble he had was indoors."

One congregant who attended the service on Sunday told WFAA that she's not a fan of mega-churches, preferring to worship alone.
