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.

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.

Your biggest year ever. Again.

250-million-en

The Bible App has now been installed on a quarter of a billion unique devices. Many apps come and go. But thanks to you, the worldwide YouVersion community, the Bible App continues to thrive and grow. The Bible App was one of the first 200 apps in Apple’s app store debut, and still more people come to rely on the Bible App every day, all around the world.

We also thank God for the truth and life that the Bible promises:

It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
Isaiah 55:11 NLT


 

The Worldwide YouVersion community

Together, this was our biggest year ever. Again.

Thanks in large part to everyone who partners with us — visionary Bible publishers and societies, Bible translators, content providers, and hundreds of volunteers — we are privileged to be able to offer more opportunities for people to experience the Bible than ever before. In fact, in every category that we measure, the global YouVersion community has been more engaged with the Bible throughout 2016 than in any previous year.

 


 

We now offer Bibles in 1,045 languages.

We now offer Bibles in 1,045 languages.

The Bible App is the first app in history to offer text content in over 1,000 languages. And Bible engagement is increasing all over the world. People are turning to the Bible App to explore God’s Word even in some places you might not expect:

Cameroon Cameroon
While Cameroon’s highest usage is split between its official languages — French (50%), and English (47%) — Bibles in regional languages such as Fulfulde, Bulu, and Mandang are increasing in popularity.
 
Indonesia Indonesia
Although the Bible App features 26 Bibles in languages commonly spoken in Indonesia, our four Bahasa Indonesian language Bibles are the most popular. Usage for the most popular version, Indonesian New Translation, is almost evenly split between online and offline.
 
Mozambique Mozambique
Even as users continue engaging with Scripture in Portuguese (the official language of Mozambique) and in English, Bibles in Tsonga, Chichewa, and Sena are also seeing significant growth.
 
Nepal Nepal
Shortly after the Nepali New Revised Version and the New Testament in Eastern Tamang became available in the Bible App, users in Nepal began discovering them, prompting one of the most rapid increases in Bible reading in a heart language that we’ve ever seen.
 
Tanzania Tanzania
Bible App use in Tanzania is increasing, both in installs and in daily active use. Almost half of that use is offline. Usage of Swahili language Bibles increased during 2016, from 15% of total usage to 40%.
