BibleBox Pi (#bibleboxpi)

Supported by Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF)

God’s word is the most important tool we can use when sharing the Gospel with others. Help us port the BibleBox software to the Raspberry Pi, optimizing it for use on the low-power, commodity hardware platform so that workers in all fields can use it to share the Gospel digitally.  

Cyberbullying (#cyberbullying)

Supported by World Vision

Too many children have been the victim of cyberbullying.  How can we identify, prevent, and stop cyberbullying of children, deter those likely to commit it, empower bystanders to take action, and develop a resilient and effective support networks of peers, parents, caregivers, schools, industry leaders and trusted adults to support children affected by it.

Grassroots Impact (#grassrootsimpact)

Supported by EMF

God only has one plan for your city - the local church.  How can we work with local churches to discover common needs and empower our global audiences and networks to affect change in their communities?

Stop Sexting (#stopsexting)

Supported by World Vision

Tens of thousands of children have been caught up in a sexting epidemic.  How we can encourage minors to think before they sext, to take the conversation offline and ensure images designed to be private remain that way, or to discourage them from participating in the first place.

Scripture App Publishing (#scripturepub)

Supported by Wycliffe USA

Language-specific apps help people engage with content.  How can we make them in the hundreds of languages we have without having to hand-code hundreds of apps? Help redesign tooling and infrastructure on existing tools to allow mass publication of scripture and other content in hundreds of languages all at once.

Child at Risk System (#childatrisk)

Sponsored by Family Connection Foundation

Many orphanages do not have the resources or expertise to create or procure software necessary to manage their operations.  Develop a reporting and information management system that allows children’s home directors, foster parents, orphanage managers, and social service workers to collect, input, process, and report on children's data. The secure, web-based open source solution will help facilitates provide better services to children, reduce administrative overhead, and provide better accountability while protecting the private data of eachchild.

Digital Bible Coaching (#biblecoaching)

Supported by Indigitous

Digitally coaching someone around a passage of Scripture is challenging but important for discipleship. Imagine a place where someone can share Scripture, have a conversation around it, and know if they have read it or not.

Radio Advocacy Network (#radionetwork)

Supported by EMF 

Cultivating and sustaining a network of people who want to make a difference in the world network requires a dedicated effort but can have significant impact. How can we best convert an existing listening audience of millions to a real time need-based advocate network? For example, how could we leverage technology to mobilize people to care for their neighbor?

Jesus in the Media (#jesusinthemedia)

Supported by EMF

The news is often depressing, focusing on reporting negative news instead of positive stories and thereby engendering fear instead of hope. How can the attributes of Jesus be shown through media in relevant ways where His attributes can be tied to things happening in the local communities and provide a way for Christians to “live out” these attributes in relevant ways?

Low-Connectivity Challenge (#lowconnectivity)

Supported by Jesus Film Project

A significant ratio of the world’s population are still offline without an internet connection.  Low connectivity is not only an inconvenience, but it's a marker of inequality as well.  How do we creatively use existing tools designed for remote and isolated areas to share information, take advantage of local situations, and share the gospel effectively?

Gospel Storytelling (#gospelstorytelling)

Supported by

Media has become an essential part of our daily lives, shaping our worldview and strengthening of society.  Using a set of existing Gospel-focused video products, how can you extend their impact in new and creative ways to help non-believers take their first step towards Jesus.

Bridge Builders (#bridgebuilders)

Supported by #Hack Boston

We are creating a space where relational bridges can be built where they have not been thought of before.  We want to connect missionally minded professionals around the world with information and opportunities in regions that are considered “unreached”.  By understanding the economy that makes up an unreached area we can know how missionally minded individuals could work, live in areas they may have only prayed for from a distance. By joining the data sources of Joshua Project (JP), US macroeconomic data and worldwide trade data, how can we create a full “economic picture” for “unreached” areas to widen the impact and placement of missionally minded followers of Christ.
