Hackathon 2017

Do you write code, design user-interfaces, craft databases, ensure software security, or work in any other way to create software? Do you have a heart to serve Jesus and want to use your professional skills for His Kingdom? Then we’d like to invite you to join us for 10 days this summer!
We hope to create several pieces of Kingdom-worthy software that serve in a variety of ways. The projects we tackle might assist in evangelism, encourage prayer, organize refugee work, inspire your walk with God, coach people in disciple-making, or one of several other needed projects. The list of possibilities is endless!
