Bible Society Australia and YouVersion Bible App partner to champion the Bible in Australia
Bible Society Australia has joined forces with the YouVersion Bible App, which has been downloaded on more than 350 million devices worldwide. Together, we will help churches and organisations get the Bible and other biblical content to more people through the mobile app.
“Our partnership with YouVersion is a natural fit, as we are both championing the Bible to help people everywhere fully engage in God’s Word,” said Dr. Greg Clarke, CEO of Bible Society.
Together, Bible Society and YouVersion are looking for the right individuals and ministries to help create a global network of content partners passionate about helping people explore the inspired Word of God.
“We’re so grateful to work alongside passionate partners like Bible Society Australia to get the Bible into as many hands as possible,” said Bobby Gruenewald, Founder of YouVersion. “We’re devoted to helping people engage with Scripture around the world, and we look forward to seeing even more quality content made available as a result of this partnership.”
YouVersion provides an accessible platform for any church or para-church organisation to share original audio, video and written content as daily Bible Plans. YouVersion Australia representative, Mitch Hammond will help churches and organisations in Australia to improve the reach of this content by assisting and training them in the process of uploading content to create Bible plans.
Created by Life.Church, YouVersion is on a mission to help people engage with the Bible. The team designs and builds experiences that make it easy for people to integrate the Bible into their everyday lives. Since 2008, the Bible App has offered a free Bible experience that can be accessed on smartphones, browsers, voice platforms, and more. The Bible App for Kids launched in 2013 and engages children with Bible stories on an age-appropriate level. The newest app, Bible Lens, analyses objects in photos, finds the most relevant Bible verse to match, and automatically creates beautiful, shareable artwork.
