FaithTech Chicago meets on the second Thursday of every month.
We meet on Zoom.

Here’s what you can expect:


We connect, get to know each other and build meaningful relationships.


Each time, someone will speak to us on the intersection of Faith and Technology.


We start and continue community labs projects as part of our regular meet-up rythym.
