Where the Protestants Roam. Black, White and Gray provides a county by county color map of the largest Protestant denomination in each county. It seems that there is a huge empire of Southern Baptists and a fringe territory where the Assemblies of God and Methodists appear. Fresno is an Assemblies of God county. The New England area is Methodist, which squares with my mother's stories about Methodist relatives and friends. In Fresno, Methodists are fairly scarce on the ground.
