Merry Christmas from YouVersion!

From all of us here at YouVersion, we wish you the very best this Christmas. We hope you take many opportunities throughout this season to celebrate the gift that God gave us in his son, and to reflect on all that it means, for the Bible calls him:

Immanuel, “God with us”


Share the love. It’s easy.

If you get to spend time with friends and family this holiday season, we hope you’ll make the most of every opportunity to share your faith. Show people how you use your Bible App — and how much fun the Bible App for Kids is. Invite them to join you as Friends in the Bible App. You can even share verses and Verse Images about Jesus’ birth on your favorite social networks.

…if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way.
1 PETER 3:15–16 NLT

app-opens-blog

Each dot indicates one person opening the Bible App — which now happens an average of 125 times every second!

YouVersion just had its biggest year ever.

Don’t miss out on what God does next.

When YouVersion launched as a website in 2007, we offered just 12 Bibles, in two languages. This year, thanks to the generosity of visionary partners, the Bible App became the first app in history to offer text content in over 1,000 languages. All over the world, more and more people are turning to the Bible to hear what God wants to say to them. When you give to YouVersion, you’re helping us connect them with God’s Word, in every country on earth.

engagement

2016 was the worldwide YouVersion community’s most Bible-engaged year ever.

This is personal.

At YouVersion, each one of us has experienced the gift of God’s love through his Word. That’s why we’re so passionate about sharing the Bible App with as many people as we can. And because you use the Bible App, you’re already a part of what God is doing.

Every time you use the Bible App — whether it’s to read, to listen, to meditate, or to share — you’re participating in a community that spans the globe. Now, take the next step in your Bible App journey: discover how much better it can be to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

Go all in.

What would happen if every person who wanted a Bible could have one?

We’re leveraging technology to equip this generation to be the most Bible-engaged people in history. That’s because we believe that when you invest in reading or listening to Scripture, it has the power to change your life. We’re seeing it happen all over the world. When you give to YouVersion, you help us connect more people with God’s Word, in places that have seen triple-digit Bible engagement growth like Mozambique, Nepal, Bangladesh, Argentina, Cameroon, Indonesia, and Iraq.

Imagine a world where every person can instantly engage with God’s Word in their own language. In the history of our planet, nothing like that has ever been possible before. But now, not only is this dream possible, it’s within reach — and during our lifetimes.

Let’s find out, together.
