Bible plans are supplemental pathways to help people get to the scripture they’re looking for, and helps our users find out what God’s Word says about what matters to them. YouVersion currently offers hundreds of Bible plans in a variety of languages. Each plan varies in length. The minimum length of each plan is three days, with the maximum being 365 days.

As we track engagement we recognize that the average user is on their smart phone and tends to prefer consolidated content. That has helped shape our current word count per day, which is 400 words or less.

While the majority of our devotional content is text-based, we also welcome other forms of media as part of the devotional experience. We know great biblical content can be read, watched, looked at, or listened to. We support video, audio, and images, and would embed those elements into the devotional experience for you.

We want to make sure that your content is well categorized in the app so that users can easily find what they’re looking for, and your content gets adequate visibility. Bible plan categories include Addiction, Encouragement, Faith, Families, Fasting, Finances, Forgiveness, Grace, Groups, Humility, Kids, Leadership, Marriage, Men, Missions, Parenting, Purpose, Singles, Wisdom, Women, Worship, Young Adults, and Youth.

  1. Scripture-Based: Since we are focused on Bible engagement, plans need to provide Bible verses or passages for daily reading. Stand-alone devotionals that don’t require reading the Bible as part of the daily assignment will not be accepted.
  1. Unique: Although plans shouldn’t be unique just for uniqueness’ sake, we do look for original content that is relevant to everyday living. We also like to provide options that meet a variety of needs, so if there are topics that resonate with your specific community, it’s likely that others will benefit from the content as well.
  1. Legal: Content providers must have the legal right to sign a Licensing Agreement that gives YouVersion legal permission to distribute the structure/content of the plan. Only copyright holders can sign the agreement.
  1. Relevant: Topics must be relevant to a broad Christian audience. Since our users come from a variety of denominational viewpoints, plans geared to one specific group or sect may not accepted.
  1. Quality: Content, including images, audio and video, must be of high quality and translate well in all formats including desktop, tablet, or mobile.
  1. Authority: Your wisdom is valuable. Choose topics where you’ve been given insight and/or topics that have resonated well with your existing audience.
