2023 in Review

Recounting the Lord’s Goodness
4m read

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of another year, but as I reflect on the past twelve months, I’m grateful for the way the Lord has led in this ministry and how He has used it to touch many lives.

Early in 2023, we surpassed the important milestone of 50 million messages listened to on AudioVerse. But since then, traffic has only continued to grow month over month!

50 million is a large number to be sure, but more significant is that the number represents real people whom Christ is seeking to reach. I want to share with you the stories of Ricky and Linda, two individuals that highlight the power of God’s Word to transform lives:

New in the Past Year

Throughout the past year, we’ve released a number of new features and initiatives to better serve our listeners:

These email courses are designed to be promoted to listeners who have never heard of AudioVerse before, and we are continuing to refine the strategy to better reach those who need the Gospel. Look for more to come in this initiative.
  • Weekly Picks: One new feature that many of our listeners have enjoyed is the “Weekly Picks” email that is delivered each Monday morning. It highlights messages on a certain subject for listeners to enjoy throughout the week. Some listeners have shared how they forward that email on to their friends while others save it for future reference. We’ve heard from so many that they really enjoy having a list of messages suggested to them.
If you aren’t receiving the Weekly Picks emails, simply sign up for them here:


Looking Ahead

As we look forward to 2024, we have a lot of ideas and projects already in motion that we look forward to sharing with you soon. But here are a few big opportunities ahead of us:

  1. International Growth: We are actively working on developing a long-term, sustainable strategy to reach more languages at scale.
  2. Personalized Experience: Our “Meat in Due Season” project launched last year is continuing apace, and we are laying some significant technological foundations to enable us to be far more effective in presenting the right messages tailored to the right listener at the right time.
  3. Reaching those Unfamiliar with Adventism: We see an incredible opportunity to leverage the powerful content in the AudioVerse library to serve those outside of Adventism. We continue to develop and test methods to best accomplish this goal.

AudioVerse Audio Bible

That last point of reaching those outside of Adventism is the big reason why we are creating the AudioVerse Audio Bible. Over 50% of new users come to AudioVerse to listen to audio Bibles , so we see a huge opportunity to expand our reach to even more of those listeners if we had full ownership of an audio Bible ourselves.

Our goal is $200,000 to complete this project!

To help us achieve this goal, we invite you to support the production of the AudioVerse Audio Bible by visiting our donate page . All first-time gifts and any donation over $100 will be matched dollar-for-dollar toward this project. And you have the chance to vote for your favorite book of the Bible to be produced first! Follow the link below to donate today!

As we enter the last few weeks of this year, please consider a gift to AudioVerse in your year-end giving. We deeply appreciate your support.

Glory to God,

Alistair Huong

Executive Director
