Help these 800,000 people get God’s Word in their language.

Bible For Everyone

You know we love you, right?


We love because God loved us first.

1 JOHN 4:19

We do. That’s why we do everything we can to encourage, inspire, and challenge you to connect with God daily through His Word. Because we want you to experience the same intimacy with Him that we enjoy. But did you know…?

More than a billion people still can’t experience His Word in their language.1

Join us, and let’s share our love with them.

…Dear friends, since God loved us this much, we must love each other.

1 JOHN 4:10-11

Ministries are already working to get the New Testament translated into most of the world’s languages by 2033. Through #BibleForEveryone, we’re helping fund high-impact projects that they can complete quickly.2 The YouVersion Community has already helped more than 1.5 million people get Scripture in their language.3

Here’s how. It’s simple, practical, and immediate.

…if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

1 JOHN 4:12

Give now, and help the Aja people (pronounced AH-jah) get the New Testament and Genesis translated into their language. This one simple act of generosity will help 800,000 people in Benin and Togo4 in Africa hear from God through His Word… just as we do.

Give Now


As the family of God, one day we’ll experience the great joy of meeting the brothers and sisters in Heaven whose lives we touched here on Earth.

…I looked, and there in front of me was a multitude that no one could count, people from every tribe and every nation.

REVELATION 7:9

“I want a deeper relationship with God. But with everything happening in my life…

…when?”

If you’re like most people, the moment you wake up, it’s already time to start getting ready: for school, for work, to take care of the kids… just, whatever you have to do that day.

We can help.

Jesus said these words, about a woman who touched his heart…

Matthew 26:10-13 Verse Image

Why not share them today… with someone who’s touched your heart?

Your friend, who always seems to have the best advice…

Your neighbor, who’s doing a great job raising her kids…

That girl you work with, who will always tell you the truth, even when it’s hard…

Your sister, who knows you better than anyone — and loves you anyway…

Your mom, who will always be a part of you…

Your daughter, who inspires you to become a parent who is worthy of her…

Your wife, because you can never say, “I love you” too many times…

What’s on your mind during Lent?

Woman reading Bible on phone

Work. School. Relationships. Health issues. Bills. (All of these.) With so much going on in our lives, it’s easy to be distracted from the things we actually want our lives to be about.

…set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God’s right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth.

COLOSSIANS 3:1-2


That sounds great!

Now… how do I do that?

Between now and Easter Sunday, invest just a few minutes each day in meeting with God in His Word: the Bible. Then off and on throughout the day, think back on what those words mean in your life. Worldwide, this season is known as Lent. And millions of people will be joining you, making Jesus first in their hearts.
