Why do you think the Pacific Northwest is such an ‘unchurched’ area?
As I’m not religious, I cannot claim by personal experience how “churched” or not the region is compared to others. I have conducted no rigorous study here.
There does appear to be no shortage of physical churches in Spokane, though, they’re far commoner block on block than Starbuck’s or Zip’s.
Perhaps the questioner senses that the region is not sufficiently overt in their religious convictions, or fails to reflect their particular vision of religiosity. Those are quite different issues.
