Code for the Kingdom HACKATHON

 

 Ideate. Build. Impact.

 Create technology that matters. 

WHAT IS IT?

On the weekend of March 10-12, 2017, we are bringing together technologists, entrepreneurs, creatives, businesspeople, ministry leaders, visionaries, and anyone passionate about faith and technology, to create technologies what would address significant issues confronting society, community, families, and spiritual lives.

Together our vision is to provide more opportunities for people like you to use your talent and be the change by addressing a number of challenges aimed at helping release the oppressed, teaching God’s Word, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and supporting the church and the body of Christ.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

  • We want to catalyze friendship, passion, purpose, and collaboration in technical and entrepreneurial communities.
  • To challenge and release you to create and use 21st century technologies to serve God’s Kingdom.
  • To create a scalable community across the world to accelerate and encourage Christian innovators. 

SOME OF THE CHALLENGES FROM PREVIOUS CODE FOR THE KINGDOM HACKATHONS INCLUDE:

HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY...

be leveraged to create, cultivate, and strengthen society's foundational relationships of marriage, family, friendships?

• bring the word of God to the first generation of children who are growing up with mobile devices?

 • help cut and/or combat the effects of fatherlessness in a child’s life, in turn strengthening families, reducing poverty and crime?

 • foster a culture of generosity towards each other?

• identify, promote, test, collaborate, augment, and fill the gaps of ministry programs around the city?

• disrupt human trafficking? 

 

Join us on March 10-12, 2017

Make new friends, get inspired and build something that matters. 

 

Everyone is welcome regardless of faith or worldviews - come and join-up with a team on the Friday night, or bring a team with you.

Leadership Network

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. 

Leadership Network is a Dallas, Texas, based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its global ministry includes programs around the world.
