YouVersion, the mobile Bible App developed by Lifechurch.tv, has really grown in popularity across platforms. In 2009, it added mobile reading plans to its feature-set, allowing folks to further engage with God.
Now, YouVersion has marked it’s 5 millionth completed plan, and that is cause for celebration. As one who has been blessed to have contributed a few plans to that number, I can say that YouVersion is truly helping to create and strengthen relationships. The added social networking component and breadth of topics make the reading plans compelling mobile ministry pieces.
The cool thing is how the plans have increased and diversified over time. While I was doing a devotional by Tony Dungy, a teen in my youth group was doing one by Lecrae and Overflow. Also, while laurels are easy to accumulate, the creative crew at Lifechurch.tv seem to understand Who the glory should be directed to.
Below is some visual data to help put the numbers in perspective:
Again, at the end of the day, more people are hopefully leading more fulfilled lives, and in the end, that is our job as Christ followers.
