Meet Some World Changers


A missionary once said God gave us computers to accelerate Bible translation, and He just lets everybody else use them. I get to help people use their devices to connect with God’s Word in a version they can understand. Our users are finding new and creative ways to engage with the Bible that I never would have imagined. I’m glad I get to be a small part of this team.

David A., Android Support

I love to share the gifts God gave me for His glory. Being capable of spreading the Word of God and reaching people to His Kingdom while I'm at home it's amazing. It's a dream come true to do missions through the computer. Being a volunteer at YouVersion impacted my personal life because I was a shy person with lack of confidence but volunteering with people of many countries made me more confident and it helped me to discover other skills that God gave me and I didn't know them.

Nizia D., Brazilian Portuguese Localization Team Leader

As a YouVersion Volunteer, I don't see myself as serving YouVersion, but as serving followers of Jesus Christ. I serve others as if I am serving Him. (Colossians 3:23) It brings me pleasure to serve Him and His children.

Mik S., iOS Support

I love the Bible, and I think it's really valuable if people spend time in it. I consider it a privilege that I can use my love for language and the talents that God gave me, for this cause. Translating helps in two ways. First, of course, there is the fact that you help make bible plans available for more people. But second, there is a personal blessing in it for me. While translating I read better, I wrestle with words (and sometimes with God), and in doing so my faith has grown.

Karin H., Dutch Localization Volunteer

Volunteering for YouVersion gives me the opportunity to help someone engage with the scriptures on a regular basis. I know that what we do is a blessing because we don't even know the people we are engaging with yet there is that great desire to make sure that every problem is solved and with every problem solved, someone draws closer to God as they read His word. I have a very busy work schedule but yet when I am able to spare time to assist YouVersion users, it gives me great joy.

Steve P., Android Support Volunteer

I read and re-read the passages and verses to give a good meaningful translation. In the process , I realized God communicating through those verses and passages. As I dwell, ponder, and think, I could feel my spiritual well-being, nurtured from within.

Ram K., Tamil Localization Volunteer

Volunteering with YouVersion has filled many of my moments of despair with hope. It has tightened my relationship with the Word of God. It has helped me to see His Kingdom with more hope and faith, and it helped me to know some amazing people in this team, some examples of amazing faith and dependence on God.
