Networking Christian Developers and Technologists for Kingdom Impact

Recently heard about a great network of networks for Christian developers, technologists, and entrepreneurs in the tech sector that stems from the Code For The Kingdom hackathons, an initiative launched by Leadership Network, that has an online connection point via the Google+ Community for Code fo the Kingdom at plus.google.com/communities/112803271040533425213

These meetup groups (powered by meetup.com) for Christian technologists and entrepreneurs total almost 3,000 members (at the time of this post)! Out of this list of metropolitan areas and major cities with Christian software developers and technology leaders connected through meetup.com, the highlighted (in bold and asterisked) groups have active meetups scheduled in the coming months — it’s quite powerful to convert the online connections into offline meetups—

The description and welcome letter of these meetup groups tell more about what these networks are all about:

“A big HELLO and WELCOME to our community. Tell us about yourself, your passions, and any projects that you may be working on. We want to create a space for developers, technologists, innovators, and entrepreneurs to openly express their Christian faith. We are all walking a journey of integrating our work and our Christian beliefs — let’s walk together and with Christ.”

“This is a group for talented individuals who want to apply their skills and experiences to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom. We will organize meet-ups and weekend long hackathons to gather some of the best minds to use prayer, our skills, and technology to tackle challenges confronting our society, communities, churches, and spiritual lives.”
