For anyone tasked with being creative as a career, the goal of being productive and creative at the same time day in and day out is, well, really challenging. I surveyed our staff around how, when, and where they are most creative. They had a nearly unanimous sentiment. Very few answered with anything related to...
For six years, YouVersion has been on a roll: 135 million downloads and counting A new Bible App for kids 809 versions and in 528 languages A partnership with History Channel’s “The Bible” Newly acquired bible.com All this momentum left the main website outdated– not reflective of the transformative heartbeat of the organization.
