A perfect setting where technology, missions, and faith are directly linked.

Indigitous #HACK is an opportunity to unleash the huge potential in a generation of technologists to improve our world. The event will allow a community of passionate people to use their God-given gifts and experience to help individuals and organizations serve others better.

  • Do you want to code to change people's lives?
  • Are you dreaming to innovate the means we share the gospel and make disciples?
  • Do you want to meet other people who are passionate about tech and missions?
  • Is technology affecting the way you do ministry?
  • Are you struggling to find where to invest your skills and time to build God's Kingdom?
  • Is God calling you to serve Him using your tech skills?

Tech.
mission.
Discipleship.
in one place.

#HACK is a collaboration between technologists, designers, students, ministry leaders and leaders harnesses the power of a generation of purpose-driven and faith-inspired technologists who are looking for opportunities to serve others through technology. We convened people from all backgrounds who wanted to collectively make a difference, to live a life of purpose, and to use our skills, gifts, and expertise with technology to impact our world.

 

It's global

Sometimes innovation doesn’t scale because it’s too localized; events like #HACK give you a global network where you can connect with friends and colleagues from all over.

It's Missional

Participants experienced the energy of hundreds of people working towards a common goal together in multiple locations all at once. #HACK was a gathering of creative, innovative, like-minded people from around the world.

it's collaborative

#HACK connected developers, designers, technologists and entrepreneurs from all over the world who shared interests and passions.

It's inclusive

While #HACK is explicitly Christian, participants from any (or no) faith background are openly welcomed. As the community worked side by side through the challenges, they got to know each other in a deeper way.

Life is too short
build tech that really matter!

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers, developers and technologists join others in the field of software development, like graphic designers, interface designers, project managers to collaborate intensively on projects.

What separates Indigitous #HACK from others is that our participants are focused on mobilizing technologists to support God’s work across the nations, offering communities a chance to learn from and with one another as they address interconnected and related challenges. We are focused on inviting people to meet the missional gap, seeing the Great Commission fulfilled through technology and digital strategies.

Historically, hackathons have been exceptional opportunities for hands-on, creative problem solving of difficult technological challenges. Global hackathons, or “mass collaborations”, take this opportunity to another dimension, by connecting an international community around a common vision to meet common needs in their communities.

To get right to the point… yes! #HACK welcomes anyone who wants to collaborate together on missional technology projects that have long-term impact. While our work focuses on all kinds of technology, you don’t have to be a programmer to get involved. We need designers, photographers, writers, project managers, social media gurus – creative thinkers of all types! The most important skillsets are the abilities to work with others and find ways to solve problems. Also, while Indigitous #HACK is explicitly Christian, participants from any (or no) faith background are openly welcomed.

It depends on the city your are participating.
