Micah Singapore organised The Micah-thon - our first-ever integral missions 'hackathon'.

Over a weekend, young people came together to tackle real-life challenges issued by local churches/ministries, in a way that integrates our faith and social action, and in consultation with local leaders/practitioners.

At the Micah-thon, participants got to:

  • Find out about the state of integral missions and the broader Kingdom landscape in Singapore

  • Take on real-life challenges in integral missions faced by churches/ministries in Singapore

  • Ideate with like-minded Christians in small teams of 4-5

  • Consult directly with leaders/practitioners

  • Process with others what living missionally looks like
