As part of the Beyond Digital Initiative launching this year, Leadership Network is hosting the Code for the Kingdom hackathon series at some of the most prolific tech development centers of our country to discover new tools and strategies to address the challenges confronting our society, our churches, and our spiritual lives. Our goal is to bring together some of the top coders and developers in the country to collaborate on designing tech solutions to real life Kingdom challenges. The first event, hosted in partnership with Carpenter’s Lab and Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, is scheduled for June 28-30 in Silicon Valley. For this event, we have secured over 100 top technologists from companies such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, LinkedIn, and eBay to dream about and drive toward new tools to accelerate the mission of the church in our digital culture.
As a valued leader in the church, we want your input as we develop compelling challenges for our first event. Think about it: If you had unlimited access to over 100 of the most talented coders and developers in the country, what Kingdom challenge would you ask them to address? To participate, fill out the brief form here. In the next few weeks, we’ll let you know which challenges will be chosen for the June hackathon.
