Who We Are

Church Online Platform is a free tool designed to help you do more than just stream your services online. We help churches build a vibrant, engaging church online experience focused on connection, community, and next steps.

Brought to you by YouVersion for Churches, our goal is to help you create experiences that lead people into deeper intimacy with God no matter where they are.

Our History

In 2006, Life.Church launched the very first church online experience to reach people outside physical church walls. In 2011, we began sharing our Church Online Platform to empower any church with the same ministry opportunity.

Meanwhile, just down the hall, God was also working through our YouVersion team, connecting a global community of people to God’s Word in their own language—now numbering more than 1,800 languages in over 2,600 Bible versions, with over 500 million installs.

In 2021, our two teams merged to create YouVersion for Churches to serve churches in even more ways.

At YouVersion for Churches, we create tools and resources to help you bridge the gap between ministry and modern life. We believe in the power of the local church, and that we can accomplish infinitely more together than we can apart.

We can’t wait to help you create experiences that draw people closer to God—online, in-person, and anywhere in between.

Thanks to the generosity of our global Community, YouVersion for Churches provides our products completely free of charge.
