Overview

A Podcast is an episodic audio file provided by one of our trusted content partners. These episodes are usually focused on a specific faith/spiritual topic and delivered in a conversational way. It is YouVersion's mission to encourage and challenge our Community to develop a daily rhythm of seeking intimacy with God. We believe that intimacy has the power to transform lives and it's at the core of why we create and partner with others to provide Biblically centered, culturally relevant experiences.  We believe the addition of Podcasts Feature will further enrich and engage people into a deeper understanding and relationship with Christ via their daily routine.
