Welcome to the 21st-century church! This church does not wait for people to come to it, but is going where the people are – online. We now have easy-to-use christian apps that provide daily devotionals to church networking platforms and heavy-duty theological bites – you name it, and it’s online!
There are tons of super products and platforms that promise to egg you on to fight the good fight. We’ve picked out five seriously cool and easy-to-use christian apps that are worth checking out. Here goes:
Your church small group is going to hit a whole new level! Study Church was developed by a young bloke called Tanner, who wanted to come up with a cool and easy way for small church groups to share, discuss and collaborate online.
“How cool would it be,” Tanner thought, “if we could study group material together, share, and discuss answers before class! Then we could really dig in deep when we met in person.”
The result – an online platform built around your group’s study material, which allows your group members to interact with each other on study questions. So, when your gang eventually meets during the week, the time spent is a lot more intentional and meaningful.

2. Glo Bible:
The Word of God is living, but the Glo Bible app makes it jump to life like never before! This app lets you plunge into the Bible with the help of HD videos and documentaries, hi-res images, zoomable maps, 360-degree virtual tours and other awesome features. What’s not to love?
Originally meant to be a desktop app, Glo Bible is all set to launch a power-packed, mobile-friendly avatar in the summer of 2016. You will soon be able to simply tap a passage to open up a treasure trove of media and study resources linked to each verse.
There will still be a free version of the new app, and monthly subscriptions will be available at the throwaway price of $5. Did we forget to mention that this app can integrate almost EVERY translation of the Bible that’s out there?
We’re excited! Stay tuned! To know more about Glo Bible, click HERE.
Stories are powerful. Perhaps, the most powerful kinds are the ones in which the Gospel rewrites the endings. Well, that’s exactly why Rock Church built the Gospel Central online and mobile apps.
This impactful platform is where you can explore, watch and share real stories of God moving mountains in different people’s lives. Stories of redemption, deliverance and of hope being restored. We love it!
Gospel Central is available as an online platform as well as an iOS and Android App. Download it right away, and sign up for your daily dose of inspiration.

How many times have you told a friend, “I’ll pray for you,” and then have completely forgotten about it? Well, with this handy app by your side, you will never forget again.
How? By bringing all your prayer points together as personalized index cards, which you can swipe as you pray! You can set up your own custom-made categories. For example, you could be praying for Family, Salvation, Church, Mission Trips and Nations. Or, you could also have categories by the names of specific people or causes that need prayer. It’s pretty amazing!
This app has been developed by software developer Andy Geers, and is available for free on iOS

5. Voke App:
We love free apps, especially when they actually have something amazing to offer! Well, this new kid on the block does just that!
Voke lets you and your friend go on the faith adventure together. Through a short video-series of 8 impactful films, you and your buddy get to address life’s challenging questions. The videos use animation to help you explore the answers to questions like, “is God in the detail?,” “was Jesus the real deal?” and “can Jesus affect my life?”. So often, we run away from these difficult questions. Going on the faith adventure is about refusing to shy away from life’s tough questions and facing them head on. After sharing the video with a friend, you can each answer a discussion question that helps turn your doubts into growth and fear into faith!
