MBS Introduces Interactive Bible App

| February 17, 2015

Close up of a man using mobile smart phoneMaryland Bible Society is teaming up with Back to the Bible to deliver its goTandem mobile app.  The product of years of research, goTandem is designed to give you Biblical reminders, exhortation and encouragement throughout the day.  The distinguishing feature of the app is that these reminders are customized to you, based on your answers to a series of questions about your Christian life and challenges.

Back to the Bible spent 7 years in research to determine what makes the greatest impact in accelerated and sustained spiritual growth. They found that daily Bible engagement was the absolute best tool for spiritual growth.  Using this data, they developed the goTandem app, designed to help people engage the Bible throughout the day.

The app asks you to respond to questions about your life in Christ and then delivers thought provoking Biblical content throughout your day to help you receive, reflect on and respond to God’s Word.  More information (and a great white board video) is available at www.gotandem.com.

goTandem was featured at the 2014 CPN Christian Business Conference and received a positive and excited reception.  You can download the Maryland Bible App directly to your mobile device from the Google Play Store or the IOS App Store.

In light of our focus on igniting fresh passion for God’s Word and our advocacy of the greatness of God through the Word of God, we at Maryland Bible Society are especially excited to partner with Back to the Bible.

If you would like more information on the new app or if you are interested to learn how your church or ministry can have your own customized white-label Bible app, please call Cathy Johnson at 410-685-4040 or cjohnson@mdbible.org.

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
