How the church can innovate like Indiegogo
I love gadgets.
One of my favorite places to check for the newest gadgets is Indiegogo. It’s a place where people who want to solve real-world problems put together a prototype, invite others to dialogue, comment, and ultimately invest in their ideas.
This a solar-powered water bottle is something I’ve personally been fascinated by recently – it takes humidity from the atmosphere and collects it in the bottle. What if I was stranded and didn’t have access to clean, drinkable water? This product solves my problem.
So my question is, why in the world is the church not investing in ingenuity and innovation?
That is what we are doing at the Hatchery. Meeting with our students on campus, I hear how they are tackling a wide range of real-world problems, from food insecurity, the challenges facing people with disabilities, to language barriers in second generational ministries. These are the kinds of things I want to invest in.
What are some real-world scenarios and problems that you think the church should be addressing? Not just through helping and teaching, but in providing real solutions to real problems.
I’d love to hear what causes you are passionate about. And who knows, maybe there is something we can work on together at the Hatchery
