#Hack Challenges

BibleBox Pi (#bibleboxpi)



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. 


Bridge Builders (#bridgebuilders) 



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.   


Child at Risk System (#childatrisk) 



Create a secure, web-based open source solution to better manage orphanages and provide services to children, reduce administrative overhead, and ensure accountability while protecting the private data of each child. 

Cyberbullying (#cyberbullying) 



Help 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. 


Deep-linked Apps (#deeplinking)



Explore deep linking between multiple mobile apps such that they can be used in the context of a singular ministry experience. Mobile deep linking is the ability to provide a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) that can access a screen or resource inside a native mobile app. 


Digital Bible Coaching (#biblecoaching)



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. 


Gospel Storytelling (#gospelstorytelling) 



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. 


Grassroots Impact (#grassrootsimpact)



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? 


Jesus in the Media (#jesusinthemedia) 



Research shows that Christianity has a negative appeal with the media audience, whereas Jesus has a positive appeal. 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)



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?


Music Finder (#musicfinder) 



Music is a universal language… How can we use sentiment analysis or other similar technologies to help us identify music that at its core invites people to worship, reflect and/or connect with God – whether or not it initially appears to be categorized as “Christian?” 


Radio Advocacy Network (#radionetwork) 



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?


Scripture App Publishing Service (#scripturepub)



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 of the existing workflow manager to allow many organizations to do mass publication of scripture and other content in hundreds of languages all at once.

Stop Sexting (#stopsexting) 



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.
