Can an app bring you closer to God?
A new app, indoubt, hopes a new format for devotionals will engage young adults leaving the church.
Downloaded over 1,300 times, indoubt, was created to serve young people struggling with their faith and provides daily spiritual devotions on weekly topics like relationships, identity and faith. The app provides short videos and articles and encourages users to get into discussions in the comments.
In their website, founder Isaac Dagneau says, “The indoubt app brings God’s voice to the lives of youth and young adults. It helps them get through hardship, engages them in the Bible and invites them into a real conversation with others. Our goal is to see more young people in a genuine relationship with Christ, and the indoubt app uniquely serves that purpose.”
In an interview with VancityBuzz, Dagneau explains he felt the app was a necessity to address the trend of young people leaving the church, and post-secondary school graduates leaving the faith entirely.
“The stories we publish on the app are real and authentic. At the same time, we always give Scripture and point everyone to the Word and Christ,” Dagneau says. “Every week you’re going to hear stories and watch a video about a topic that you’ve most likely experienced or are quite familiar with. Not only this, but you get to create a profile so that you can ask questions, give comments, and talk with others.”
What do you think? Does an app have the potential to encourage teens and young adults to reconsider faith?
