Challenges for #HACK Singapore
Is there a technological solution for improving the accessibility and affordability of healthcare for children in urban poor communities in Cebu City, the Philippines?
How can we help Christians in different phases in life discover, learn about and contribute towards reaching people at the ‘ends of the earth’ for the glory of Christ?
How can we prevent injured migrant workers from being exploited by lawyers and employers, due to their lack of access, awareness and understanding of the law?
And a special challenge by Indigitous Singapore
The sharing church, the sharing economy Imagine a repository of Christian resources that can be shared and used for God any time – events, spaces, data, missional support and more. How can we share what we have with one another?

“Every heart without Christ is a mission field; Every heart with Christ is a missionary by vocation.”
– David Kim
What would missions in a digital world look like?
Imagine a world where the fullness of technology is used to bring impact to wherever people are – on every screen. With willing hearts and our God-given skills, we can advance His Kingdom in the digital space.
Who is #HACK For?
#HACK participants typically have skillsets in Web Development, Design, UX, Data Engineering, Software Engineering, System Design, Marketing, Project/Product Management.
However, the hackathon is open to everyone. In fact, we have had #HACKers that were from a non-digital background, and won awards!
What Does ONE GET from #HACK?
- A community of friends (John 13:3) -> A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
- SWAG items
- Celebratory Buffet Dinner on 6 October (Sunday)
- Proverbs 11:24-25 -> One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
- Acts 20:35 – In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
What is Indigitous?
Indigitous is a local and global community of believers from 4 broad backgrounds (tech, design, strategy/innovation, media), engaging one another with ideas to advance God’s Kingdom in the digital space.
We are keen to bring like-minded folks together and grow our connections to fellow brothers and sisters who would like to do the same. One of the ways we do that is through #HACK, a missional hackathon engaging with challenges from ministries ministering to groups that burden His heart, such as suicidal people, red light workers, child abuse victims etc, and also with a missional focus. We’ve worked with local organisations such as Tamar Village, World Vision, Focus on the Family, CRU (Campus Crusade), and more.
God has placed in our hearts a vision that missional work can go beyond the traditional; that some efforts are ground-up, that is, from the everyday Christian, and can be in the digital realm where millions of souls now spend a big chunk of their time. We want to build a platform that helps Christians grow closer to God through fellowship and working for His kingdom, using the talents He gave us.
The core team organising efforts here in Singapore comprises of 8 people, from different churches and different backgrounds, but united in Him.
