What is a Hatchathon?
A Hatchathon is a 2.5 day interactive workshop that helps teams take “big ideas” about making change in the community and turn those ideas into reality. Teams will come from local churches or community organizaitons.
St. Paul’s Hatchathon will focus on supporting young adults (18-30 year olds) in the community. Any team that applies must include at least one young adult. “Big ideas” can be anything focused on doing good—for for the community and its members, for the environment, for those feeling alone or hopeless—because ultimately, any projects striving to make the world better are examples of God at work through us. See examples of past Hatchathon projects here.
Funded by a grant from the Zoe Project at Princeton Theological Seminary, St. Paul’s Hatchathon will be facilitated by thought leaders from Ministry Incubators. Over the course of this workshop, participants will be guided through the creation of basic framing documents and pitch decks, and will have the opportunity to present their ideas to local business professionals. At the conclusion of our Hatchathon, the top three teams will receive grants ($3000 for the top team, up to $2000 each for the next two) to help get projects off the ground.
