How do I get started?

What is Events?

Events is a free feature inside the YouVersion Bible App that helps you easily connect with church events that you’re attending. Events can also help you discover other church and special events happening nearby. If your church isn’t using Events yet, you can direct your church leadership to, where they can sign up for a free YouVersion account to begin creating their own Events. Our free administrative tools for Events make it easy for your church to share key message points, Bible references, artwork, external links, important church news, and more.

I don’t see Events in my Bible App, where is it?

iOS: Events is under the More view (…) on your toolbar, after Videos.

Android: Events is in the main menu, under Videos (tap the menu icon at the top left corner).

If you don’t see Events, but you see a “Live” tab, then you are running an older version of the Bible App. Please update your Bible App to the latest version by visiting

If an Event is created from duplicating a previous Event, you'll need to ensure the date/time has been updated or it will not appear in the list.

Do I have to have a YouVersion account to use Events?

You can search for and view Events without a YouVersion account. But, if you would like to take notes or save an Event, you must have a YouVersion account. Signing up is simple and YouVersion accounts are completely free. A YouVersion account gives you access to all of the most powerful features of the Bible App — Bible Plans, Verse Images, Highlights, Notes, and more — synced across all your devices. Visit to get your free account now.

Does it cost anything to use Events?

No, the Bible App always has and will be free. Events is an integral part of the Bible App.

How can I find an Event?

The Bible App needs access to location services on your device to find Events near you. If you’re looking for a specific Event and you know what it’s called, you can search using part of its title.

Do I have to attend an Event to see it in the app?

No, if you know an Event’s title or its location, you can search for it that way. But, the purpose of our Events feature is to help you engage more with Events that you attend.

Can I see Events that have already ended?

Yes, if you have saved the Event or if you have a direct link to it. Once an event has ended, however, it will no longer appear in Events search.

Can the administrator of an event track who or how many people use an event?

No, at this time there is no way to track either users or the number of users.

Can I edit my Event after publishing it?

Once an Event is published it cannot be edited nor deleted.

Published events that are not yet Live still can be unpublished. Go into the Event Editor, Edit the event, select the "unpublish" button on the top right corner of the page.
