For many web-enabled and mobile Christ followers, Lifechurch.tv‘s YouVersion Bible App is a very useful tool. It is easily accessible (on all major OS platforms), is available online and, in some iterations, offline as well, has 500-some versions across more than 300 languages and has plenty of extras added in. When you factor in the integrated “Live” functionality and social networking, it is a pretty compelling tool for people of all generations looking to engage with Christ.
On July 10th, the Bible App celebrated its fifth birthday. A few days prior, it hit a major milestone: 100 Million installs of the Bible App!
Bobby Gruenewald, Pastor, Innovation Leader at Lifechurch.tv and the creative motor behind the Bible App’s conceptualization, understands the importance, and who really is behind the popularity of the Bible App.
“When we launched YouVersion, I never could have envisioned what God had in store,” he says. “And even as we’re celebrating 100 million installs of the Bible App, we know it’s nowhere close to what’s possible. In fact, we like to say it starts with 100 million. Our faith has expanded to believe that Bible engagement could be transformed not only for this generation, but generations to come.”
It seems as though the sky is the limit, so we are eager to see how else the Bible App can help more people to engage with God.
