Growing up, Will had no use for God. On TV, he saw televangelists convincing people to send money, and ministry leaders shamed by scandals. Will’s family didn’t go to church, but his friends’ church experiences confirmed most of what he already believed about so-called “Christians.”
Then as an adult, Will met a Christian woman on a dating site. They had several things in common, so they started chatting regularly. As Will got to know Becca, he was surprised to discover that her faith didn’t fit any of his stereotypes.
To see for himself what the Bible was about, Will downloaded the YouVersion Bible App and started a one-year Bible Plan. He also began attending an Alpha course, where his skepticism was welcomed. As he learned who Jesus actually was, Will decided to follow Him.
When Will learned the Bible App was made by YouVersion, a ministry of Life.Church, he tried Life.Church Online. There was also a physical Life.Church campus near him, so he tried that too. When the pastor mentioned that YouVersion was hiring, Will applied.
Today, Will has been working at YouVersion for 7 years. And that woman he met online? They’ve been happily married since 2012.
Several years ago, postpartum depression grabbed hold of Galisia. When she couldn’t see a way out, she lost all hope. Galisia even considered driving off a bridge to commit suicide. While surfing the Internet, she found the YouVersion Bible App and downloaded it.
Through the Bible App, Galisia started reading Plans that were relevant to her, searching on words like “sad,” “hopeless,” “afraid,” and “suicidal.” One day as she was reading in the app, something inside her shifted, and she began to weep. Because of the power of God’s Word, Galisia has now fully recovered from her postpartum depression, and she’s grateful for her second chance at abundant life.
