Create technology that matters.
OVER $10K IN CASH PRIZES
Join us for a hackathon in Redwood City,CA where you will spend the weekend creating technology that matters with like-minded people. The weekend hackathon will focus the passion, purpose, and creativity of our entrepreneurial community in supporting the good work of transforming lives.
Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, creative individuals from all disciplines, investors, non-profits, and churches, will design and build new applications to tackle from a Christian perspective the challenges confronting our society, our communities, and our lives.
The weekend will steer participants toward the development of apps with over $10,000 being awarded. We're looking for games to teach and enable, in children and adults, greater spiritual justice; consider building a new Kiva to increase the generosity; ask why our Churches still lack something like Udemy to bring people together and inspire future leaders - and change that. Build technologies to help rescue victims of human trafficking, alleviate global hunger, or bring hope to the fatherless. Generis will inspire us to use technology to foster a culture of generosity. Create new apps to help bring spiritual wellbeing to children and adults. And much more.
The CHALLENGES have released to let you get started now. Please remember that more challenges might be presented on the first day of the Hackathon. If you would like to discuss with potential team members, or the champions of these challenges, make sure to use the Code for The Kingdom Google+ Community.
In case you are already interested or working on a project, don’t change course. Feel free to post suggested projects at the Project Ideas section of the community, but keep in mind your projects must be aligned with the Transforming Lives theme of this hackathon..
Please come prepared to pitch your projects at the Hackathon so that you can sign up teams to work on them.
Come join us!
THE REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE REFUNDED TO ALL PARTICIPANTS WHO ARE MEMBERS OF TEAMS THAT PRESENT THEIR SOLUTIONS ON SUNDAY June 1st.

Leadership Network was created in 1984 from the close collaboration between Bob Buford and Peter Drucker to foster innovative movements among churches that active the broader church for greater impact.
Believing that meaningful conversations and connections can change the world, Leadership Network seeks to help leaders of innovation navigate the future by exploring new ideas together to find application to their own unique contexts. Through collaborative meetings and processes these leaders map future possibilities and challenge one another to action that leads to results.
Through our gatherings, publications, books and online experiences we share the learnings and inspiration to others and surface new conversations worthy of exploration.
