A hackathon is an event where people get together and develop some awesome technologies in a short time span. Think of it as a creative marathon where at the end you have some product to show for.
Come join us for the annual Code for the Kingdom Hackathon! The event will be completely virtual this year! Spend the weekend creating technology that matters with other passionate people. Work together to tackle the challenges faced by our communities, transform the digital utilization of churches, build tools that aid growth in relationship with God and the church body, and more.
Developers, church workers and leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives, investors, nonprofits, and anyone else interested in using their gifts to ideate and build ways to support their community and churches.Developers, church workers and leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives, investors, nonprofits, and anyone else interested in using their gifts to ideate and build ways to support their community and churches.
The event is virtual, and will be held in Remo. This platform allows participants to virtually sit at tables and collaborate with their team, and easily visit other tables to connect and share ideas with other teams during the event.
The event will start with a keynote kickoff, followed by one minute pitches from anyone who has an idea or a problem to solve. In the next portion, participants will decide which team to join, and the rest of the evening will be dedicated to team work time.
On Saturday, teams will be visited by mentors from a variety of fields who will help support through feedback and question sessions. At the end of the day, teams will present their project to a panel of judges. Winners and awards will be announced Saturday evening.
We can’t wait to begin creating with you!

The sixth Seattle Code for the Kingdom hackathon builds upon the success of the 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019 Seattle Code for the Kingdom hackathons, as well as the 2015 Global hackathon and previous regional hackathons, which have already gathered over 3500 technologists to create over 330 projects to do good. This largest ever global faith-inspired tech collaboration will continue to activate technologists and other creative people to give their skills and some time as their contribution to the mission field, and it will also leverage the skills and insights of entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an entrepreneurial culture with Christian values.
Come, participate and address a number of challenges aimed at helping release the oppressed, teaching God’s Word, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and supporting the church and the body of Christ.
Join us and let’s together create technology that matters.
