The importance of digital communication is obvious in today’s world. In terms of missions, the new opportunities that technology offers seem almost endless. The Indigitous group – part of Campus Crusade for Christ’s global digital strategies team – is working to bring tech savvy people together to offer solutions to real challenges in spreading the Gospel globally using technology. This fall, Indigitous#Hack will bring together people in cities around the world to ask questions and deliver answers. This is a great example of Christians coming together in partnership to use their talents to make a difference in worldwide outreach.
Indigitous #Hack is a global hackathon that will convene thousands of students, technologists and digital specialists to collaborate around missional technology projects from 4-6 November 2016. Educational Media Foundation (a Christian media company) and Wycliffe Bible translators will join Cru, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Jesus Film Project, Quite Uncommon, and other organizations for the project.
The hack-a-thon will take place in cities and campuses in all corners of the world. The initial round of 22 cities to host the Indigitous #Hack event includes seven cities in North America, one in Africa, one in Europe, and 13 in Asia.
Anyone interested in hosting or participating in a #Hack event are encouraged to apply on the Indigitous website.
“What is means to be on mission, to serve others, and to be a global church – is literally being redefined right in front of us. And it’s technology that is making this a reality.”
“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."
“I've never been in a setting where technology, missions, and faith are directly linked. This is the perfect space to see that come to life for me.”
