What is the the Bible Companion App?

Fitness, diet, finances, time—if it's a part of our lives, there seems to be an app to track it. But what about the most important part of our lives? The part that remains when all else fades? The LEAP Bible Companion App (BCA) seeks to help build healthy daily habits in regards to spending time in the Word, prayer, and other aspects of the Christian life.

How does it work?

The Bible Companion App helps create and maintain good Bible reading habits by tracking your Bible readings with consistency meters, progress bars, and reading stats displayed within daily, weekly, & monthly charts. Other tracking features include setting goals for prayer, reflection, community, Bible Study, and other readings. The BCA does not contain the Scriptures. You are free to read from the Bible and medium of your choice. 

Bible poverty can occur because the Word is unavailable
or because we do not make ourselves available to the Word.

Read Your Bible - Help Support Missions

The goal in the creation of the Bible Companion App was two-fold. First, to help people create consistent habits in the Word. Second, to support missions. As you log activities, you gain Consistency Credits. These credits can then be used to influence funding in selected areas of missions. (Coming Soon.) More information about this model can be found on the Sponsors page.

What's Next?

Click on the images below for a sneak peek of what's coming soon! 

Community Wall

The BCA Community Wall will soon replace the accountability section within the app. We felt it would be more effective and encouraging for users to see activity from those individuals and communities with whom they have opted to join. On the wall will also be KIPA's and prayer events. The BCA Community Wall is scheduled to be released late January 2015.

Consistency Credits

You've probably noticed the credits widget on the main dashboard. Soon, you will gain credits for consistency and achieving milestones. These credits may be allocated toward various sectors of missions. When revenue from BCA sponsors are distributed, the amount of points that have been allocated to each sector influences how much giving it receives.

KIPAs

KIPAs stands for Key Ideas, Principles, & Applications. They are condensed notes and applications from the Scriptures that the BCA founders develop from their study and quiet times. KIPAs were included in the initial release of the BCA and received a great response. We temporarily removed KIPAs from the BCA but will reintegrate them into the Community Wall.

Missional Categories

We are excited about this upcoming feature of the BCA! As credits are gained for consistency, finishing books, and meeting goals, users will be able to allocate their consistency credits to various areas of missions. These credits then influence giving toward that area. The BCA founders screen missional works around the world and include them within each of the main categories.

Heat Maps

Heat maps, such as the example shown here, display the intensity of activity over a certain period of time. Blue denotes cold (little activity) and red denotes hot (a lot of activity). When we implement the Community Wall, we hope to have the BCA community join together in prayer for various regions around the world. The prayer heat map will display the prayer activity.

Allocation of Credits

When a category is selected, we provide a description of what kind of works are included and a Biblical basis for the missional work. BCA users can allocate points to a category. When funds from sponsorship revenue is distributed, the points influence the amount that is allocated to each area. This is the reason we have the sponsor advertising at the bottom of the BCA.
