2016 ICCM Americas Technology for Missions (TFM)

What:

TFM (Technology for Missions) 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). All are encouraged to take part.

When:

Deadline for entries will be after breakfast Sunday morning at the conference. We will announce how to submit them Saturday morning at the conference.

How:

Projects will be presented Monday evening to the whole group. One or more people will have 6 minutes to present the project and 4 minutes to answer questions. (The time limits may be shortened if we get a lot of entries.)

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 web site, screen captures, etc.)

Judging:

All ICCM participants are encouraged to vote via the web at the end of each presentation. Projects will be judged on:

  • Impact – what is the actual/potential Kingdom impact?
  • Quality – technical quality, usability, etc.
  • Cooperation – how well does it utilize and/or encourage cooperation in the Body?
  • Re-usability – to what extent can other ministries replicate/make use of this idea?
