Technology for Missions (TFM) is your chance to show everyone a project you have been involved with that has made a difference in the effectiveness of your ministry. It does not need to be complex or ultra modern (rethinking and reusing old technology creatively and effectively is appreciated). It may be creative or it may be a particularly well-implemented application of an IT commodity (system admins take note). Everyone is encouraged to be a part of this very special part of ICCM. Past entries have included Bible translation tools, new websites, unique communication solutions, and many more.
PRIZES will be given via drawing to several TFM participants. Start thinking now about what you can bring to share with the ICCM community.
The deadline for entries will be after breakfast on Thursday morning of the conference. We will announce how to submit your ideas at the conference.
Projects will be presented on Friday afternoon to the whole group. You (and your team, if applicable) will have 6 minutes to present the project and 4 minutes to answer questions. (The time limits may be shortened if many projects are entered.)
The presentation must include:
- Title (approximately 60 characters or less)
- File(s) that can be distributed via the internal ICCM NAS, such as:
- PDF documents containing outline or full text
- PowerPoint presentation
- Picture(s)/drawing (can be scanned)
- Other media (a website, screen captures, etc.)
The prizes will be awarded via a drawing after all of the presentations are completed.
Most importantly, you’ll be showing practical examples of the incredible diversity of skill and scope of the ICCM community. Everyone always walks away encouraged after TFM, that what we do as missions technologist truly has an eternal impact.
It is the responsibility of the prize recipients, to pay any taxes necessary.
