He speaks and writes on issues of faith, technology, race, parenting, and church culture and is pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Palo Alto, California. Bruce dishes some fantastic practical advice and talks with Christopher Harris about using technology in more than just the worship space.
"I've been really pushing on folks to think thoughtfully about what kind of online presence they can offer so that they can do it well. … And I think many of our congregations feel like it's a survival strategy versus an expression of the gospel strategy." - Pastor Bruce Reyes-Chow
