Business Meets Ministry with the Revive Network

Revive is a strategic network where leaders in the Church & marketplace come together to collaborate and explore how they can transform cities & culture together. There will be events, a network directory, and online school of business and ministry.

The inaugural event is less then a month away on June 1-2 in Dallas.
You can see the full details at: revivenetwork.com/dfw

I am eager to see how this community grows. It has a potential to be a mashup of The Barnabas Group and The Center for Faith & Work with a bit of launching new businesses and ministries. In other words, how do we do more for the Kingdom by bringing God into the marketplace to boost profits and fund ministry?

If this is where your heart is, consider joining me in Dallas.

Code for the Kingdom is launching a Global Hackathon this October

After hosting local hackathons across Silicon Valley, Seattle, India, and Austin, Code for the Kingdom is launching its first global hackathon on October 2-4, 2015. Featuring 12 host cities, participants will create technologies using a Christian perspective to tackle challenges facing our communities.

Over the past two years, over 900 technologists have created create 86 projects through Code for the Kingdom. This first global collaboration will leverage the skills and insights of international entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an entrepreneurial culture with Christian values and activate technologists to give their skills and some time as their contribution to the mission field.

Code for the Kingdom’s primary focus isn’t technology but rather culture. Its an entrepreneur culture with Christian values. When you have grass-roots organizers, influential churches, and compelling nonprofits come together to help talented people use their skills for God’s Kingdom, it extends beyond creating cool projects. It fosters culture, community, and purpose.

You can apply to be a host city at the Code for the Kingdom website. Chosen cities will be announced March 2015.

Also, don’t miss another regional hackathon coming up on March 20-22, 2015 in Dallas, TX. I’ll be there and would love to connect.
