Technology doesn't have to take our eyes off Christ

Digital technology is a powerful force changing our lives and our society in all kinds of ways, and we want to be a Christian influence in the midst of that. Tens of thousands of people every month are finding our first app, PrayerMate, to be a great way to help build a consistent prayer life - but we're just scratching the surface of the potential for this and other tools like it.

And why bother? Just look what happens when people pray:

"PrayerMate asked me to pray for Eritrea this morning. And then this happens:
#Ethiopia and #Eritrea made a historic breakthrough & agreed to end the state of war that lasted for two decades today."

Help us fund our vision

We want to build a stable financial basis for Discipleship Tech to help us fulfil our vision to:

1. Continue improving PrayerMate and its reach

Many people are already testifying to how much PrayerMate has helped them in their prayer lives, but there is so much more that we would like to do with the app, and so many more people who could benefit from it.

2. Finish & roll out our new features serving Missionaries & Church small groups

We've been hard at work building features to help people pray for missionaries and to facilitate prayer within church small groups. Rolling this out to as many places as possible will help us fund our ministry going forwards.

3. Use the team & skills we have built up to create new Christian apps & technologies

This is the really exciting bit, as we use the team, skills and connections that we have made to develop other apps and tackle new challenges to help people grow in their walk with Christ.

Our target

By mid-2020 we hope that a significant portion of our income will come from subscriptions to the PrayerMate Publishing Platform, but this means we have some startup costs that we need to raise to keep us going until that point:

$65,000

27%

$17,064 raised as of 16th December 2018
from 300+ backers

This will primarily go towards funding our tiny team:

Andy Geers

CEO / Mobile Developer
London

Ed

Server-Side Developer
Manchester

Helen

User Support (Part Time)
Berkshire

Stretch goals

We know that God is able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine, and if we raise more than our initial target this allows us to consider taking on additional staff members, increasing our capacity to develop new features and apps:

+ 1 Full time mobile developer
+ Full time user support

+ 1 Additional developer
+ 1  Designer / User Experience

+ 1 Additional project team
