CROWN HEIGHTS - A Crown Heights pastor says he's seen an upturn in congregants as the economy has spiraled downward.

Pastor Jeffrey Conyers says his small church, Praise Tabernacle, has seen many old faces return and new ones come in.

"We believe that if you hold on to God, no matter what happens - recession, depression, whatever - God is going to look out for his children," Conyers says.

Conyers says there are normally about 25 people in his church, but during the past few months he has seen that number double.
