YouVersion Volunteer Manager

Edmond, OK
Digerati – YouVersion
The YouVersion Volunteer Manager will lead and develop a global network of volunteers to localize the Bible App and other YouVersion products in dozens of languages from around the world. 

God has placed you on the earth for a reason, at this crucial moment in time. He’s given you a purpose. With the smartest tech at our fingertips and more distractions vying for our attention than ever before, the need for the Bible has never been greater. If you’re looking for a place you can combine the skills God has given you with your passion to see people engage with His Word in new ways—no matter where they are or what languages they speak—the YouVersion Team is the place to start. Come change the world with us!

The Bible App currently provides our global community the opportunity to read the Bible in over 1,300 different languages, and interact with the app interface in 60+ languages, allowing millions of people to draw closer to God through His Word every day. YouVersion’s Global Impact Team is passionate about working with generous partners and volunteers around the world to continue providing the Bible App in more and more languages. We’re seeking a Volunteer Manager to develop our volunteer network.
