Oklahoma Christian University unveiled a new Bible reading plan on YouVersion this week.
The plan allows anybody with access to the YouVersion app or online site (bible.com) to read through the entire New Testament by the end of the spring semester.
Along with a daily Bible reading, OC’s plan features devotional thoughts written by Oklahoma Christian students, faculty and staff members.
“We are so thankful to YouVersion for their willingness to partner with us,” Campus Minister Summer Lashley said. “I believe that great things can happen when a community commits to reading God’s word together. I hope that others are blessed by reading alongside our campus community.”
The plan is titled “WORD: OC’s 60-Day New Testament Plan.” Readers can search for and subscribe to the plan for free in YouVersion online or on their smartphones or tablets.
“This is a great opportunity to share a common goal to read the New Testament this semester. We hope this becomes a yearly endeavor that encourages our campus to read the Bible daily,” Associate Dean of Spiritual Life Chance Vanover said. “One of the difficulties of trying to start a new habit of reading our Bible is knowing when and where to begin. That is why we are excited to partner with YouVersion, which has made this project so accessible for anyone interested in joining the journey with us.”
YouVersion is the No. 1 Bible app in the world, used on more than 100 million devices around the globe. The free app, created by LifeChurch.tv, offers the Bible in hundreds of translations and in almost 150 languages.
