Dallas County and Johnson County are the fastest growing counties. They were the locations of the last two churches Cornerstone Church of Ames helped to start. The next two are Polk County and Warren County. The strategy input here is to consider church planting sites by focusing on larger growing areas. Other filters include such items as the number and quality of churches in the area and existing relationships in the area.
Sixty-six of ninety nine counties lost population, though the state grew overall. This shows the growth is nearly all in the cities.
