A Labs partner is anyone who has experienced or seen a problem in their community, city, ministry, mission, charity or church. You have a desire to see tech leveraged by a volunteer team to solve this problem.
You may represent a Church, Mission Organisation, Charity, or you may be a person with a passion to see a particular problem solved in Jesus’ name.
FaithTech labs projects aim to solve problems for:
Many problems touch more than one of these, but we are laser focused on these three areas.
We have a range of opportunities for problem pitches:
Through any of these, we have provide opportunities for projects to be pitched to the FaithTech community.
FaithTech Labs are volunteer-led teams, so we can’t give guarantees that any specific problem or pitch will be picked up.
However, we have a growing community of people who are passionate to steward their skills to glorify God, so the opportunity is great.
Innovation is a great learning opportunity!
We want to see more successful projects, leveraging technology for God’s glory. As part of our Labs Program, we have coaching, pitch exemplars, and engagement opportunities that will help us partner well together, as you walk with the project team through the process of building a solution.
As we build out our tools and las materials in 2021, we’ll be testing them with our communities, partners and labs volunteers.
Our most successful projects have great engagement from our Partners. FaithTech starts in community, and that’s the model we place around our project teams. We want to see relationships built, people learning together, and amazing products built alongside this.
Alongside relationship and community, partners are key in helping teams get through a thorough discovery process, understanding the problem and the way your organisation or community might be able to implement solutions.
Labs projects are where groups of people in the FaithTech Community come together to solve problems with tech. These problems are pitched to us by partners, or from right within our FaithTech community.
Getting involved in a project is an opportunity for discipleship with those you’re working with, as well as being a part of kingdom-focused innovation to solve real-world problems.
The best way to get involved is to get plugged into the FaithTech community:
Our heart, at community and a global level is to equip our labs teams to succeed, and offer an environment where teams can learn and grow together.
Practically the support resources we offer are:
We do not see the Faith and Tech elements as separate. Each step of our labs program is founded on scripture, yet accessible for non-Christians who want to be part of something special.
We will explore our calling as disciples as we build kingdom-focussed products.
There are two main models for labs projects that you can get involved in:
Whether you commit to a 2 day hackathon, a 4 week Sprint, or spend 1 year with a community project team, you can know that you are contributing to kingdom tech innovation.
Absolutely, this program is for people across tech, ministry, business, and charity. If you’re passionate to help design solutions to real-world problems, there’s a place for you.
Each team ideally has a mixture of skills to bring balance and momentum. This will often include a mix of developers, researchers, a project manager, and a designer.
