If you missed it, Bobby and Terry shared about two new features for churches: Church Profile and Insights.

Church Profile

Millions of people draw closer to God through YouVersion every single day. And, with Church Profile, churches will be able to reach people like never before.

“It became immediately clear [when we started developing features] that we needed a way to connect people with their church, right inside YouVersion.”
Terry Storch
Chief Operating Officer, YouVersion

Church Profile

Church Profile will create pathways throughout the week for people to connect with their local church community, and for pastors to engage with their congregations—all from inside YouVersion.


Insights is a powerful analytics tool built into the YouVersion for Churches Portal.

Insights is designed to give church leaders both a high-level view of YouVersion stats and a zoomed-in, anonymous view of YouVersion activity for your church community.

The goal of Insights is to give you data that will help you guide your church daily, all while ensuring privacy and security.

“What would you do differently if you knew how often your church was reading a certain book of the Bible? Or if you knew a large percentage of your church was searching for terms like ‘anxiety’? How would it shift your strategy?”
Terry Storch
Chief Operating Officer, YouVersion

We’re just getting started.

Church Profile and Insights are just the beginning of the features we’re developing. We have an entire team actively building what's next for YouVersion for Churches.

“I believe the future of the Church is bright. And it’s because there are thousands of church leaders, just like you, who are ready to do whatever it takes to reach people for Christ.”
Bobby Gruenewald
CEO, YouVersion
