More than 100 million people around the world have installed the Bible App for Kids from YouVersion and OneHope.
“We know that the most important influence in a child’s life is their family,” said Bobby Gruenewald, founder and CEO of YouVersion. “With that in mind, we’re really encouraged to see millions of families around the world choose to turn to the Bible and learn about God together.”
With the app available in 66 different languages, more than 85 percent of those 100 million installations are from outside the United States. The app has been translated into some of the world’s most common languages, such as Spanish, Chinese and French, but it’s also available in other languages, such as Polish, Mongolian and Swahili. In every experience, Bible App for Kids is designed to bring scripture to life through interactive animations and fun activities to help children experience 41 of the major stories of the Bible.
“Through this Bible experience, we’re seeing children in every country fall in love with God’s word,” OneHope President Rob Hoskins said. “We’re passionate about equipping the global church to engage the next generation with interactive stories from the Bible and help lay a foundation for future spiritual growth.”
Children around the world are using the Bible App for Kids to share God’s word with their peers. In Russia, 7-year-old Arisha used the app to tell her friend Mariana about Jesus. After a few weeks of using the app together, Mariana decided to follow Jesus.
“She doesn’t hesitate to share her faith and tell her friends about Jesus,” said Olga, Arisha’s mother. “After we downloaded the Bible App for Kids, she has become more interested in the Bible. The Bible comes alive for her now.”
One way Bible App for Kids equips the global church is through the Bible Adventure Curriculum and supporting resources for parents, pastors and church leaders.
“We love using Bible App for Kids and the matching curriculum for our children’s ministry,” said Melissa Glynn from Life Valley Community Church in San Jose, Calif. “Just recently, I had a mom tell me that her 5-year-old ran through the house quoting Joshua 1:9. These resources are making a difference in our children’s lives, and they’re such a blessing to our congregation.”
