It is based on the idea that real comprehensive behavioral change is only possible once there is a spiritual revolution in the hearts and minds of young people.
To exist, all you have to do is breathe. But to live, to really live, you must believe. Reach4Life challenges teens to breathe heaven’s air supply.

Many young people who have gone through the program have gone on to become peer educators themselves.
In 2020, Biblica was excited to create a digital version of Reach4Life by releasing the much anticipated Reach4Life App. This App is currently available on both Apple and Android phones in English, Spanish, and Russian. More languages coming soon.
