About Metanoia

We are a group of college students who are passionate about bringing theologically rich and refreshing content to our peers. This project came about when Today in the Word, a devotional ministry saw that there was a slim market in devotional content for young adults. They came to us and asked if we thought that it was something worth investing in. We came back with a resounding yes. After lots of brainstorming, dreaming, and planning, we built Metanoia from the ground up. We believe it’s a game changer in the devotional realm, and we hope you do too.

As we were trying to figure out the right word to describe our devotional, we threw out a lot of ideas. Metanoia was the word that stuck. It’s a Greek word that shows up in the Bible over 20 times. Every time, it’s translated as repentance. It’s a repentance that’s a change of mind; a shift of sorts. In a visual example, metanoia is the journey from shadows to light. This is a progression that occurs over time. In this way, we believe that our devotional reflects the progression of a Christian’s life. We are all on the path of being made new together, and Metanoia is a tool for you to be encouraged in the midst of the movement.
