Dear AudioVerse friend,
2022 has been an eventful year for us at AudioVerse. This year, we’ve released more messages than ever—over 6,000!—thanks to an increasing number of partner ministries like Starting with Jesus, Strong Tower Radio, Amazing Facts, the Michigan Conference, and many others. We also brought online some new audio Bibles and the dramatized Spirit of Prophecy by Myers Media which our listeners have told us they really enjoy. We are in discussions with numerous other partners about even more exciting content to share with you in the coming year.
Notably, 2022 was a big year for us technologically. It’s been a year where many of the efforts in our software development finally bore fruit: Starting with the launch of our completely redesigned website at the start of the year followed by the new mobile app in the summer. (Download our free app here: iOS / Android) Since that time, we’ve had several additional releases that brought enhancements like a streamlined navigation interface, Topics, Quick Start, Continue Listening, and more. What you don’t see is a lot of unseen work behind-the-scenes to enhance our ability to better reach the world with the Everlasting Gospel.
That is why we launched our ambitious Meat in Due Season Project. The objective of this project is to leverage data science to personalize the delivery of the present truth to every listener on AudioVerse. And beyond that, to make much better use of the rich content in our library to win souls even off our platform. To read more about the details of this initiative, see my blog post here: Meat in Due Season Project.
The total budget for this project is $550,000. Some generous donors have pledged to match all gifts toward this project dollar-for-dollar until December 31, so your gift before the end of the year will be worth twice as much! We are two-thirds of the way there and need $190,000 to get us over the finish line.
As you contemplate your year-end giving, please prayerfully consider whether the Lord is impressing you to give a bit more for the work at AudioVerse. We have heard how economic challenges are preventing some of our supporters from giving as much as they would like this year. If you are in a position to do so, would you consider helping to make up the difference? If indeed we are headed toward a time of economic hardship in the near future as many financial prognosticators are predicting, we want to make sure we are doing all we can to ensure the Gospel of peace is readily available for all who are seeking. If AudioVerse has been a blessing to you, please consider a gift to pay it forward to those who need this blessing in the future. Now is not the time to relax our efforts, but to redouble them for the salvation of souls.
There are still a few days to make a tax-deductible gift for 2022, and there are many different and convenient ways to support the ministry:
To make ensure your gift is directed toward the Meat in Due Season Project and qualifies for the match, please note the project in the memo of your check or in the drop-down selection on the online donate page. PayPal Giving Fund doesn’t allow donor comments, so all gifts given via that channel through the end of the year will automatically be allocated toward the project.
You will receive a receipt for tax deduction purposes for all your donations given in tax year 2022 in January 2023.
Thank you for your continued financial partnership in enabling this work to continue.
Let’s enter 2023 walking with Jesus,
P.S. We will be at GYC in Phoenix, AZ! Please stay current on AudioVerse's Facebook and Instagram posts for early releases of GYC content and come by our booth to say hello! Also, we are looking for volunteers to share their testimony of how AudioVerse has blessed them. We’ll record you by video, audio, or however you’re most comfortable. Even if you won’t be there, feel free to reach out to us with your story at email@example.com. Hope to see you there!
P.P.S. Have you heard about the #Steps2ChristChallenge? Sign up to have your spiritual walk with Jesus renewed in the new year. This 2-week devotional program will send you an email each day starting on January 1, walking with you through each audiobook chapter of Steps to Christ. Whether you’ve read Steps to Christ before or not, there’s no better way to kick off 2023 than spending two weeks drawing closer to Jesus.
