Micah-thon 2021 Solution Ideas and Integral Mission Solutioning Toolkit

Micah Singapore conducted a Micah-thon in 2021. Teams came together to ideate solutions to missional challenges presented by challenge owners. Participants were equipped with an integral mission solutioning toolkit.

We present below the toolkit and the solution ideas generated from the Micah-thon.

Integral Mission Solutioning Toolkit

  • Identify: tentatively identify the issue and identify yourself with the issue. 

  • Investigate: data collection to understand the nature of issues, resources available, relationships, stakeholders, partners, external and internal factors that impact the community. 

  • Interpret: take a step back and make sense of the data, turn to theoretical and theological resources to understand deeper. 

  • Ideate: come up with all possible ideas and then sieve and refine ideas based on various integral mission considerations. 

  • Integrate: plan and strategise after pulling together all the considerations. 

  • Implement. 

  • Iterate: review, repeat and refine.
