NavPress announced today that it has partnered with Greater Texting in order to turn prayer cards, verses from The Message Bible, material from Pray!, and Discipleship Journal magazine articles, and other NavPress discipleship resources into inspirational Christian text message subscriptions.
Greater Texting offers subscriptions of daily messages that are delivered directly to a mobile phone at a time selected by the subscriber. No launching an app or digging through an email inbox is required. Text Message Devotionals are great for anyone who owns a cell phone, but can be especially valuable to teens and young adults who are increasingly devoted to their cell phones and less and less to the Word of God.
"It's very simple,” said Cynthia Bezek, an editor at NavPress. “You go to a website, pick out the topic you'd like to receive prayers, Scriptures, or inspiration about, pay $5, select the time of day you would like your text messages to come, and then for the next 30 or 40 days an inspirational text will come directly to your phone. You can also subscribe to a set of topical text devotionals for a friend, the kids in your youth group, or whomever you know who enjoys texting."
"We are excited to be making valuable Christian discipleship content available utilizing this simple but impactful form of delivery,” said Michael Visentine, COO of NavPress. “Subscribers also get the opportunity to donate 30% of the subscription fee to a church or ministry of their choice, so it also becomes a great way to support a church, school, or other ministry organization, like The Navigators.”
