They have added churches, but I could not find anything on the number of members.  Given that Scientology is renowned for bleeding their members financially, this could be either genuine growth, or a publicity stunt aimed at getting growth.  

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

Also wasn't clear that opening more than one "megachurch" at a time was a regular occurrence.

I don't doubt they're seeing growth though. They seem to be very slick marketers.
