Connecting the local church to the world’s largest digital Christian community.
Create your own space inside of YouVersion, making your church discoverable to your members—and the entire YouVersion Community.
Your members can tap “Set As My Church” and be connected to you in YouVersion. They’ll be notified when you highlight a new devotional Plan.
What if you didn’t have to guess what your church needs?
With Insights, you can explore top search trends, highlighted verses, books of the Bible, and more. View global trends, or zoom in on your church to see aggregated, anonymous data that helps you guide your community.
A reason to use your phone in church.
Connect people to everything happening during your services in real time. Share sermon notes, Bible references, announcements, and more—all inside YouVersion.
Once your Event goes live, YouVersion users will be able to find it by searching for Events happening near them.
CHURCH ONLINE PLATFORM
Church Online Platform has been helping churches launch online ministries since 2011. Built specifically for churches, it offers features to help people easily take next steps in their relationship with Christ.
The Platform boasts a powerful set of admin tools to help manage online services, engage volunteers, follow up with guests, and view engagement metrics—all free.
BIBLE APP FOR KIDS
Engage children with a Bible experience just for them.
We developed Bible App for Kids with our partner OneHope to introduce children to 41 of the big stories of the Bible, including Noah and the flood, Daniel in the lions’ den, and the birth of Jesus, to name just a few. Installed on more than 85 million devices all over the world, this free app is available in over 60 languages (with more planned), and includes games specifically designed to help children learn, understand, and retain important Bible story concepts.
A two-year curriculum for your church, completely free.
Bible App for Kids Curriculum helps children experience the Bible like never before. This two-year course is designed for children aged two through kindergarten, and includes video episodes and activities; license-free music; leader guides; and training videos.
Engage your church in biblical community.
As a church leader, you regularly encourage your attenders to seek God in His Word, and to actively participate in community. YouVersion equips people to do both…all the time, everywhere they go. Plans, Verses of the Day, Guided Prayer, and tools such as Highlights, Bookmarks, and Notes make it easy for your attenders to engage with Scripture every day. Home feed, Verse Images, verse sharing, and Events help them stay connected with their friends, both inside and outside the app.
MORE FREE RESOURCES
Just as Life.Church created YouVersion to help individuals engage with the Bible, Life.Church created Open Network to help churches fulfill their mission. Open Network equips church leaders with sermons, message transcripts, children’s ministry resources, worship songs, art and graphics—all completely free.
