INDIGITOUS US 8/10/23: Arise Asia in Thailand
This past July, over 1,600 young adults across 20+ countries in Asia came together to find new passion and take the challenge to bring the Gospel to the unreached.
Indigitous US and Global joined Arise Asia as panel speakers, facilitating workshops, producing videos, doing social media, and mentoring for the Innovation lab. This was also a great opportunity to meet with co-laborers from our Indigitous network, including those from Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, and other regions. Despite having met many of them over Zoom, this was the first time many of us finally got to meet in person.
Andrew and Nick gave two workshops on “Crowdsourcing for Missions” and saw about 60 people attend in total. This workshop aimed to help the young adults rethink their involvement in global missions to be about collaboration, using their unique skills, and leveraging technology for the advancement of the Gospel.
💡 Innovation Lab
The Innovation Lab at Arise Asia was a unique track where 50+ young adults gathered to prototype and pitch new solutions for global missions. This was essentially a hackathon held during the conference and the first time for many of the participants. Their challenges were Missions & Funding, Bible Literacy, Marketplace Ministry, Creation Care, and Social and Emotional Learning. Watch the recap below!
