On a recent evening, a small group of tech entrepreneurs sat around a table in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, swapping ideas on how to grow their startups.
Three men in their late 20s and early 30s announced they had signed up thousands of pastors to their startup, FaithStreet, which matches Christians and churches. An Episcopal priest wearing a white collar suggested ways they could refine their business model. And a young woman said she was frustrated with the designer for her mobile app, which helps people search for relevant Scripture verses.
After an hour, they bowed their heads, and a local church pastor led them in prayer, asking God for “fresh ideas of what you want to see happen with faith and technology.”
