Vermont's historical hero was Ethan Allen, whose autobiogaphy began with the words "My name is Ethan Allen and I am not a Christian." That sentence sums up how many people in Vermont feel about issues of faith. Polls frequently show Vermont to be the least religious state in America. But that is slowly changing. With nearly 50 churches spread across Vermont's hills and valleys, the BCNE is making an impact across Vermont. But many of the churches are small. Most have bivocational pastors.
