A couple of months ago, GlobalRize received a portal for the YouVersion Bible app. This allows us to design Bible reading plans. That means that we can add our own Bible reading plans on YouVersion. In just a couple of month there have already been 2330 people who finished a reading plan that was developed by us! We want to design many more reading plans that will complement the Bible courses that we offer.
YouVersion is a Bible app that helps you to read the Bible daily. The Bible is available in 1372 different languages on the app. Many of the languages also have Bible reading plans. This app has already been downloaded to more than 430 million devices.
Regular Bible reading
Many of the people who follow our courses or come to our chatroom have not yet installed the app. It is a valuable resource for us to freely make the Word of God available to our students, to stimulate regular Bible reading. We want to give them access to the Bible in their own language and to several meaningful reading plans. The Bible app and the reading plans encourage the user to grow in the Christian disciplines of reading the Bible and applying it to their daily life. The app gives access to many translations (also offline) and the possibility to read together and share notes with someone else or in a group.
GlobalRize is also writing a Daily Devotional that is available through YouVersion for the millions of people who use the app. These devotions are also available to be translated in the many languages in which we are active.
Overview of the reading plans
These are the reading plans we have created. Don’t hesitate to start one:
1. ‘I Am…’ How Jesus Reveals Himself
2. Loving Your Neighbor As Yourself
3. What Trees Can Teach Us About Gods Kingdom – part 1
4. What Trees Can Teach Us About Gods Kingdom – part 2
5. Samuel – Prophet And Leader
The development and posting of the reading plans on YouVersion is a big project. We are looking for a team leader who can coordinate the development of Bible reading plans in English.
