iDisciple-webiDisciple, a Family Christian ministry, is offering a new mobile app designed to deliver a wide variety of Christian content in one place and enable users to give to Christian causes.

“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 iDisciple. Users of the free version have access to basic features, including sermons and devotionals.

For a monthly subscription of $4.99, paid subscribers create personal profiles that will allow the iDisciple system to suggest appropriate content for their specific preferences, needs and interests. Premium content from Christian leaders such as Andy Stanley and Anne Graham Lotz 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. Users can also give to their favorite charity within the app with a few easy clicks.

Christian e-books and music will be available from the service starting in early 2014.

Because iDisciple is a Family Christian ministry, 100% 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% 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.”
