Theology + Technology
Faith Leads Tech is a one day, single track conference bringing together followers of Jesus Christ who seek to utilize technology and innovation to provide biblical solutions for life.
Attendees from varying backgrounds - Developers, Designers, Marketers, Product Visionaries, Ministry Tech Leaders - will gain insights and perspectives from technology experts and ministry tech leaders on current innovations at a global, church, university and individual level. Keynotes and talks will explore a wide range of opportunities that currently exist at the intersection of Faith and Technology, as well as what innovations will be needed to provide effective technology for the church of tomorrow.
For Technologists, this gathering will offer encouragement, showing that we as believers are not alone in our faith or efforts and offer support for being a strong believer in today’s technical environment.
For Ministry Tech Leaders, the conference will provide an opportunity to learn of current innovations in ministry tech, share pain points that may be solved through technology, and network with other ministry tech leaders who are seeking to spread the gospel and grow the church with the help of technology.
Throughout the day there will be opportunities for conversation with enterprises/companies, ministries, startups and individuals actively pursuing innovative technologies in ministry.
Outcomes of the event will range from learning of shared struggles and successes, aligning of ministries around common goals, and awareness of innovative uses of technologies for Kingdom impact. Ultimately, it will build community between followers of Jesus Christ interested in furthering His Kingdom through Technology and Innovation.
