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.

This first Code for the Kingdom in Nashville will build upon the success of previous C4TK hackathons, which have already gathered thousands of technologists to create hundreds of projects to do good. Our goal is that the weekend would leverage the skills and insights of our city’s entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an entrepreneurial culture with Christian values that extends far beyond the weekend itself. We hope lasting community and change are a result of our coming together.
