A McDonald's location may come to a New Jersey or Philadelphia church if a new crowdfunding campaign called the McMass project is successful.
The campaign argues that having a McDonald's in church could help churches with a "number of problems" including finances, traffic and appreciation of their central locations and beautiful architecture.
In contrast to churches, the campaign says McDonald's franchises are profitable, draw constant crowds and would benefit from the church's central location.
"It's time for churches to engage with entrepreneurship," writes the campaign. "The McMass Project is helping churches keep pace in the modern world. We can solve all of these problems and become more present in culture by establishing McDonald's franchises in churches!"
Statistics support the lack of community growth in churches as the percentage of Americans who say they "seldom" or "never" attend religious services has only grown 4 percent in the last decade.
Paul Di Lucca, one of the multidimensional group's members, told NBC News he hopes the campaign will help spark conversation about modern church going.
"There's a lack of innovation and lack of design thinking in Church communities," he said. "We are aware a lot of people will think this is an insane idea."
At the time of publication the campaign raised only $77 of their $1 million goal.
