Besides participants working in teams to create new solutions to the challenges of reaching the unreached, there are also a number of pre-recorded design-thinking and product-thinking workshops, speakers with a missional focus, worship sessions and community-bonding events that equip you, enrich your experience, and help you form spiritually supportive relationships.
#HACK2020 is a virtual hackathon and will be held on the Hopin platform. All timings are subject to finalisation.
10 Oct, Sat
Inspiration Evening and Team Formation
8pm – 10pm
Meet other participants and visitors as we come together to share the heart we have for different people groups.
This year, there are no fixed challenges. Instead, there is a facilitated process to discover the different people groups you feel a burden for, find like-minded people, and have conversations on the needs of these people groups.
This is a crucial segment of #HACK, so you are strongly encouraged to attend!

Thereafter, #HACKing officially begins!

Thoughts from Past Participants
Behind every screen is a person, and that person is in need of the Gospel. May our hearts be open to see what God sees.
