A new multi-device content delivery system has been hailed as a “game-changer” for the way Christians receive devotional materials to help grow their faith.
“The amount of Christian content available through iDisciple is
unparalleled,” said Mike Kendrick, president and CEO of iDisciple.
“But even though iDisciple is so robust, the user experience is simple
and straightforward. When people dive into the app, iDisciple will meet
them wherever they are in their walk with God.”
The aim of the new app is to give Christians easy access to a growing
database of over 30,000 pieces of content including devotionals,
articles, Bible studies and sermons.
“iDisciple is like the iTunes of Christian content,” he explained. “This is a game-changer for Christian discipleship.”
A free version of the app gives users access to basic features such as
devotionals and articles while a $4.99 a month version will allow the
user to create a customized profile for receiving content that is
relevant to their preferences.
The app stores the user’s preferred content in a “cloud” database so
subscribers can access their content from any web-capable device
including iPhone, iPad or Android devices.
Content providers include Christian organizations such as Focus on the Family, Proverb 31 Ministries and World Vision.
Due to an increasing demand for Catholic content, Catholic News Agency,
through the parent organization, Association for Catholic Information,
will provide content faithful the Church teaching through the channel,
“When In Rome.”
In addition to receiving devotional content, users may also use the app
to give to their favorite charity through the “Giving App” with their
credit card or account credit from referring other members.
“Our mission is two-fold,” Kendrick said. “First, to help as many
believers as possible grow in their relationship with God by creating
the world's largest discipleship platform. Second, to create a
generosity engine so we can support as many Christian ministries as
possible across the globe.”
The app is the work of Family Christian Ministry, so all of the income
will be donated to support Christian charities and ministries.
Although the app is already launched, the content providers are
continuing to grow their materials everyday.
