ALPHARETTA, Ga., Dec. 10, 2013— A new app is offering Christians a first-of-its-kind discipleship experience. iDisciple, a Family Christian Ministry, is offering a new mobile app that delivers your favorite Christian content all in one place on any device.

"iDisciple is like the iTunes of Christian content," said Mike Kendrick, president and CEO of iDisciple. "The iDisciple app offers anytime, anywhere, any device access to sermons, podcasts, devotionals, Bible studies and a host of customized Christian content. This is a game-changer for Christian discipleship."

The iDisciple platform is cloud-based and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android devices, as well as any web enabled device. There are several ways to experience the power behind iDisciple. Users of the free version have access to basic features including sermons and devotionals. For a monthly subscription of only $4.99, paid subscribers create personal proļ¬les that will allow the iDisciple system to suggest appropriate content for their specific preferences, needs and interests. For example, a single, 40-year-old mother may receive daily content to help her manage her finances, raise her children, and develop her faith. Premium content from top Christian leaders is also available in an à la carte format or through iDisciple channels.

iDisciple offers a growing collection of more than 30,000 sermons, devotionals, articles, Bible studies, blogs, podcasts and an in-app Bible. Plus, users can give to their favorite charity within the app with a few easy clicks.

iDisciple features include:

  • Daily Devotions – three daily devotions are delivered to users from a selection of 20 leading Christian leaders.  
  • Sermons – the latest weekly messages from leading pastors and speakers.    
  • Bible – multiple translations at users’ fingertips.    
  • Giving App – allows users to give to their favorite charity from their credit card or a giving account which is funded by referring their friends to iDisciple.    
  • iDisciple Channels – users can choose to receive a regular stream of content from favorite authors, speakers or organizations. Channel partners include but are not limited to:
     

    • Andy Stanley’s Your Move
    • World Vision
    • Catalyst
    • Proverbs 31 Ministries
    • Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries
    • The John Maxwell Compan
    • Anne Graham Lotz AnGel Ministries

In addition, Christian e-books and music will be available beginning in early 2014.

Because iDisciple is a Family Christian Ministry, 100 percent of earnings will be donated to support Christian ministries and causes. To encourage iDisciple users in their own giving, iDisciple offers each user a unique giving account. The giving account will be funded each month with 20 percent of the net subscription fees for every new subscriber referred by the user. Users can then direct the funds to the charities of their choice.

"Our mission is two-fold," said Kendrick. "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."
