Welcome to CGDC!

RECENT UPDATES:

We are still working with the venue for 2015 dates.  It "should" be in July and we have proposed 23-25th, but don't book any flights yet until we get solid dates.  Be praying for God to be preparing hearts.


The Lord provided a terrific conference this year.  Look at the Program Guide for some details.  If you couldn't make it and want a shirt and more, contact Tim.  

Folks come as far away as Hawaii, Boston and North Carolina, and a small country named Nigeria!  Plus Korea and Japan.

Thanks to Dan - we have some general business cards to help spread the word about CGDC.  Contact Us if you can give some out.

CGDC seeks to connect, encourage, and feed Christians working in the gaming industry. You may not have noticed but gaming is now the primary cultural mediumfor Americans under the age of about 40...

  • 67% of American households play video games.
  • The average gamer age is 34. 26% are over 50.
  • More people play video games than watch movies or read books.

Gaming is where culture is being transmitted today. It is where the True Stories are being told. It is where our men and women learn about courage, sacrifice, loyalty...or not. Like any niche in our world this is an industry that needs to see genuine reflections of Christ's love, God's wisdom, and the Spirit's power to effect real soul-healing change in our lives.

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Christian Game Developers Conference. 

This year's conference was held at George Fox University July 7-9, 2011. Located in the Pacific Northwest just outside Portland in beautiful sunny Newberg, Oregon. Speakers included Os Hillman, Gary Barkalow, Lance Priebe, and Jeff Gerke. A live worship set was performed by Barlow Girl.

We had a great time! View photos from our 2011 conference at our Flickr site.

We have already begun the process of planning for next year's conference. Keep an eye out for new information as it comes out! If you would like to stay current, sign up to receive a quarterly annual CGDC Newsletter.

For other ways to get involved, browse our site - there are groups, ways to give and much, much more!
