Join us on October 16-17, 2020
Of the 7 billion people in the world, 5 billion don’t know Jesus. With digital, there are no more closed countries. Digital missions allow us to overcome borders, geographic constraints, persecution, and isolation. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people around the world are more open than ever to the hope of God, but reaching them requires new tools and strategies. Join us for Indigitous #HACK2020 to create unique solutions to the challenges of reaching the unreached.
Hackathons provide a hands-on event for self-expression and creativity for computer programmers, developers, engineers, user experience, project managers and others through technology. People with technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and robots.
Indigitous #HACK uniquely gathers devoted Christ-followers with a desire to extend God’s purposes in our local cities and connects us around the world. #HACK offers Christians in each host city an opportunity to make new friends and learn from one another while addressing critical issues through digital solutions. #HACK invites people to meet the needs of the church, missions and society on a local and global scale, expanding the Great Commission through new innovative platforms and digital strategies.
Mass collaboration is the ability for large numbers of people, who may have no previous connection, to effectively and creatively work towards a common goal. The greater diversity of skill represented on each team, the higher the team’s capacity to successfully tackle the task at hand. #HACK levels mass collaboration up to a global scale, connecting like-minded believers across every region of the world through expertise and prayer.
In this digital age, how can we use our talents to fulfil God’s call in our lives? Imagine a world where cutting edge technology is used to deliver positive impact to people, wherever they are. Be it burdens for healthy families, migrant workers, the elderly, the outcast and neglected in society – we can be vessels to advance God’s kingdom in the digital space.
Come and join us in the upcoming #HACK2020.
