the global body of believers known as the Church. Only when we 
push past those artificial constraints can we truly become who God created 
us to be.For example, many people think churches are all about money. 
The think that churches just want people to give to them but 
that they rarely give back.Besides investing in our communities and helping 
the poor, our church moved beyond the labels and status quo to 
embrace generosity in a way that some have called crazy. Weve created 
and given away millions of YouVersion Bible Apps every monthmore than 85 
million to date. We give away our weekend teachings to hundreds of 
churches every week, for free. Rather than selling products our church creates, 
we give away as much as we can. More than 100,000 pastors 
and leaders downloaded more than three million resources last year.Despite 
the lack of religious affiliation the research shows, the interest in these 
spiritual resources has never been greater. As a church, we dont see 
these research trends as a threat, but as an opportunity for us

faced the same struggles to find priests that have plagued the wider 
Roman Catholic Church. The Rev. Chuck Frederico, one of the priests who 
evaluate Jesuit applicants, says he usually heard from five a week, or 
fewer.Then, last month, the former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio stepped out 
on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica   the first Jesuit 
to be elected pope.The number of queries jumped to four or five 
each day."Some guys who made contact in the past weeks are serious 
candidates," said Frederico, vocations director for the region from Maine 
to Georgia. "This election of the Holy Father has given them reason 
to examine this more fully."Jesuits have only started absorbing the novelty 
of one of their own leading the church. Most were so shocked,
