During the YouVersion webcast we hosted in November, we shared a God-sized goal: To see users of the Bible App spend at least 1 billion minutes reading the Bible during just the month of January. Now that time is here, and we could really use your help to see this vision fulfilled.
Around New Year’s, many people want a fresh start, often deciding that this will be the year they’re going to read the Bible. We’ve literally been preparing for this moment for months. We’ve brought the Bible App to iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, PalmOS-even Facebook. Reading Plans have proven to be a great tool to help both new and seasoned readers walk through the Scriptures, so we’ve added several new ones (like the One Year® Bible NLT), with even more on the way.
We’ve shared simple things everyone can do-rate the Bible App in iTunes, help connect friends with the Bible, and share on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve even added a resource page to YouVersion.com to help people be part of the challenge. Here’s how you can help specifically:
- Read as much Scripture in the Bible App as you can during January.
- Encourage everyone you influence to do the same.
YouVersion saw some amazing numbers during 2010 (installed on more than 12 million devices, used to engage with Scripture for more than 4 billion minutes). We’re convinced God is up to something even bigger. And we believe that helping other people fall in love with His Word is the most important thing we can all do to be a part.
