#webinar Sign up for the free Leadership Network webinar, “Top 3 Tech Trends Impacting the Church” – Thursday May 16th (2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT) with a panel of thought leaders from GoogleMonkDevSocial Media Church, and Menlo Park Presbyterian Church to discuss the trends of Social Media Engagement, Mobile Implementation, and Crowd Mobilization.

Beyond Digital Initiative of Leadership Network – The two primary components of the Beyond Digital initiative are the Beyond Digital Leadership Community and the Leadership Network Hackathons.  The Beyond Digital Leadership Community is a two-year, peer-centered learning community that brings together innovative church leaders who place a high strategic value on digital tools, tactics, and spaces for accomplishing their church’s mission.  These are churches that have “gone digital” to a high degree, but also recognize that having an app or an internet campus isn’t the extent of their digital reach.  The result of the Beyond Digital Leadership Community will be the deployment of the most innovative digital tools of our time for the accomplishment of the timeless mission of the Church. Code for the Kingdom, Leadership Network’s Hackathons, will involve a series of creative contests designed to help churches engage and release the information technology innovation of the general public, without constraints of geographies, church membership, and cultures, to produce solutions that will advance the Kingdom.
