A McDonald’s in a church? McMass wants to build one


Would you be more inclined to go to church if services came with a Big Mac and a side of fries? That’s the idea behind McMass, a group whose goal is to put a McDonald’s franchise in a church.

The group, led by Paul Di Lucca, a creative director at the church branding agency Lux Dei design, has launched a page on the IndieGoGo crowdfunding site. He’s looking to raise $1 million to build the first McDonald’s church.

The $1 million will go toward purchasing a franchise and construction. The group is currently looking for a church to partner with.


“It’s time for churches to engage with entrepreneurship,” writes the group. “By combining a church and a McDonald’s we can create a self-sustaining, community-engaged, popular church, and an unparalleled McDonald’s restaurant.”

At the time of this writing, the group had raised $79.

Your reward for helping to bring McDonald’s to a church near you? Depending on how much you donate, you could score anything from an “amen” to stickers and shirts with the hashtag #Feast4Jesus, to your name on a donor wall at the first McMass church.
