Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

For the average reader, understanding the Bible is not easy. But with just a little help from a good teacher, it is possible - and powerful. According to Barna research, more than 60% of Americans want to read the Bible more, and they offer two primary reasons why they don't: they don't have time, and they don't understand it. TTW solves both problems, providing clear Bible explanation in just a few minutes each day.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

TTW's mission is simple: equip the world to read the Bible, understand it, apply it, and make it a habit. We provide simple yet powerful tools via web and mobile app that lead users on a journey to understand the entire Bible, one chapter at a time. TTW combines clear, balanced and relatable teaching with direct accessibility. Our purpose is God's calling: to make disciples, equip the saints, and preach the word (Mat. 28:19, Eph. 4:12, 2 Tim 4:2).

SOLID TEACHING. Through the Word connects inquisitive readers with excellent teachers. TTW Chapter Audio Guides provide a clear, concise and relatable guide through one Bible chapter in just 5 to 10 minutes. Our goal is to provide outstanding Audio Guides for every chapter in the Bible.
ACCESSIBLE TOOLS. Through the Word creates free, innovative, and simple virtual solutions that allow anyone the opportunity to hear and understand the Word of God. The TTW mobile app and website are intuitive tools for productive daily devotions. We believe that simplicity and accessibility are essentials for tools that readers will actually use.
PRACTICAL GUIDE. Through the Word is not an encyclopedia of study aids to store on a bookshelf or hard drive. Rather, TTW is more like a concise travel guide with a clear plan. Each day, TTW takes four basic steps through one Bible chapter: listen, think, pray, and connect.

Through the Word is a free, innovative mobile app with more than 100,000 downloads and a 4.5-star user rating. Pastor Kris Langham leads a team of outstanding Bible teachers and gifted app developers as we create intuitive tools for productive daily devotions. We believe that simplicity and accessibility are essentials for tools that readers will actually use.

As of early 2018, the TTW app has been downloaded more than 100,000 times, connecting a diverse community of thousands of Bible readers around the world. Hundreds of 5-star reviews on Facebook and in the app stores tell the stories of readers who struggled for years to understand the Bible, now engaged daily and telling their friends about it. One TTW fan told us, "I went from planning suicide to planning mission trips." We also have plans translated into Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, and Korean, all available free on the YouVersion Bible app.

TTW has produced more than 1200 audio guides, covering every chapter in the Bible, with 25 books of original content and 41 edited from sermons. TTW is working next of topical reading plans, including Recovery TTW for those fighting addiction, the Manhood Talks for young men, and a new Marriage series. We also continue to produce original audio guides through more Bible books, and we will continue to translate our guides in more languages. We thank God for every opportunity to reach the world - through the Word.
