List of tools and resources
Below is a non-exhaustive list of tools and resources I use plus causes/ initiatives that, in my view, are using tech notably to advance the Kingdom of God. I hope they prove insightful if not useful.
Here you'll find volunteer opportunities, apps and software you can use, communities you can join and causes you can support.
YouVersion (Your own version of the Bible)
Bible Project (The Bible in animated videos)
Read Scripture An app plus downloadable pdf to guide you to read through the Bible in a year
Scripture Labs (A deeper study by Read Scripture)
Pray.com Daily Prayer, Bedtime stories, Allows faith-based communities and non-profits to sell premium audio
Bible app (YouVersion) in #1 above, released a prayer feature hence I don't use pray.com any more.
Well documented API claiming to offer the largest collection of Bibles available

The Digital Bible library Maintained by the United Bible Societies, this is the global repository for scripture translations
Open Church They ask an intriguing question: What if we could do more for God’s Kingdom while spending less on resources? Photographers, developers, intercessors among others can get involved.
Some of these are specifically for these kind of hackathons but others cut across the board.
