Christians at Hackathon Work on Projects to Serve the Lord

Code for the Kingdom Jakarta

From October 2-4, more than 800 participants gathered across the globe in 13 cities in 8 countries to take part in Code for the Kingdom’s first ever Global Hackathon. Indigitous was proud to partner with Code for the Kingdom for this event, watching God do amazing things through the people who dedicated their time and talents for the Great Commission. Everywhere from Los Angeles to Atlanta to Jakarta, people gathered to hack out projects of missional importance.

Over the weekend, participants worked on 123 projects, everything from scripture memorization apps for kids to an app that helps homeless people get the help they need.

The Global Hackathon was about more than just building products, however. It was about building relationships, serving God, and worshipping together. Our work is our worship. As we built together, we discipled, served each other, and used our gifts to serve the Lord.

We are grateful for all of the people who joined this event, everyone we had the pleasure of meeting and serving with. Our hope is that work on the projects continues beyond this event and that those of you who are Indigitous – anyone who is passionate about using digital to share Jesus – continue working in the digital realm for the Kingdom of God.

Here are some articles about the hackathon that we found in the media:
