This is where faith meets action. Hackathons are an exciting, short-term community environment, where we can tackle challenges and find solutions using technology to move the mission of Jesus forward. Join us for a weekend where you’ll meet other passionate developers and creators seeking to make an impact in Vancouver and the world. Come on your own or bring a team!

The hackathon starts on the Friday night with a speaker panel who are bringing their perspective and expertise on the challenges around us. Then time for action! In a small group, dive in and use your skills to build something practical and useful to address an issue. We’ll have all the food, help, and support you’ll need to get you going. Finally, present what you’ve worked on and share it with everyone!

Fee: There’s no fee to participate in the hackathon weekend. Meals are covered too!

About FaithTech

We live in a digitally dominating world. Technology is shaping our culture like never before. Yet over and over again I hear the same question, “where is the church?”

FaithTech is pioneering a new way to share the good news about Jesus in a new era driven by technology. We exists to bridge the gap between faith and technology. Our vision is to become a global hub for FaithTech conversations, integrations and innovations. The way we accomplish this is three ways: empowering emerging leaders, hosting innovative events and building gospel-centered companies (LABS).

Our big God-ask is that we will have FaithTech in 5 major tech cities globally (mainly N.A.) in 3 years. Each city will have a City Director overseeing the Ministries and LABS. The major advantage for global influence is not only the impact via ministry in each influential city, but fast iteration and market validation for LABS projects
