About Code for the Kingdom

Code for the Kingdom is a weekend Hackathon series and ongoing ecosystem where the challenges confronting our communities, our society, our families, and our spiritual lives are tackled from a Christian perspective.

The movement hosts weekend gatherings in different cities where developers, designers, ideators and others collaborate to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom. C4TK hackathons have gathered thousands of technologists to create hundreds of projects for good.

Our goal is that the weekend would leverage the skills and insights of our city’s entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an innovative culture with Christian values that extends far beyond the weekend itself. We hope lasting community and change are a result of our coming together.

How a Hackathon Works


Come with an idea or a desire to work on a project.


After you hear project pitches, you join a team.


Over the next two days, work together to create something awesome.


On Sunday afternoon, present your project for a chance to win!
