Andy Crouch, executive editor of Christianity Today, in a recent article titled “Here’s to the Misfits,” wrote this about Silicon Valley:
You discover two things pretty quickly when scouting stories in this part of the world. First, how many Christians there are. This is not the Bible Belt by a long stretch—pastors, church planters, and ordinary Christians describe the kind of cosmopolitan secularity that’s familiar to residents of London or New York. But in the past decade the San Francisco Bay Area has seen a resurgence of vital churches … Ask about Christians at the top of major Bay Area companies, and you get a far longer list than you would in, say, New York City.
The second thing you discover is how few of these Christians want to be identified by name in a story for Christianity Today, all the more so the younger and the more recently successful they are.
Crouch goes on to describe the stories of a few young founders of Silicon Valley companies who were happy to be identified. In this blog, you will, of course, read about others. To read this fascinating article, go to: full article
