Last November, we celebrated the download of Open’s 6 millionth free resource. Less than one year later, we’re ecstatic to announce that we’ve already hit 7 million!
It’s amazing what God can do with irrational generosity, and He’s not done yet. With 7 million free resources in the hands of ministries around the world, it’s exciting to see what God is doing as the capital “C” Church works together.
I thank God for LifeChurch.tv and their ability to produce incredible, powerful, and high-quality material that they let the rest of the Kingdom use for free, all for his glory!! — Pastor Max Ingram
To celebrate this incredible milestone, here are some fun facts about how we got here:
- Weird, Elisha: A Tale of Ridiculous Faith, God Never Said That, #Struggles, and Pray have been a few of our most downloaded series of all time.
- Free resources on marriage and relationships have also been crowd-pleasers, with Forgotten Virtues, Once Upon a Marriage, Bless this Home, and From This Day Forward leading the way.
- The First Sin, about Adam and Eve, is the most downloaded lesson from our Bible App for Kids Curriculum, which debuted last year and quickly became one of our most-clicked series.
- The LifeChurch.tv original worship song We Lift You High reached #1 on the Christian music chart on iTunes.
- Our Speakers page features messages from some of today’s most influential Christian leaders, including Craig Groeschel, Andy Stanley, Christine Caine, Louie Giglio, and many more.
- And Open Ideas debuted in 2014 as a place for church leaders to share ministry tips.
Open started in 2006 with just a single free download, and we hope you’ll help us get to 8 million downloads. We’re continually adding new resources, so check back often. And if you haven’t yet downloaded your first free resource, head over to our Sign Up page and plug in.
Even after 7 million downloads, we’re continually humbled and thankful for every Open user. We love partnering with you to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
