NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Soles4Souls®, the international shoe charity, is excited to announce its partnership with Monvee™, a unique on-line tool that offers customized spiritual growth plans as part of a comprehensive spiritual formation program. This software provides Christian-based curriculum and suggested readings, as well as encourages social responsibility and compassion efforts as a means to spiritual growth.
During 2010, Monvee and Soles4Souls will take their message of hope and spiritual development to Christian colleges and conferences in conjunction with Monvee spokesman and National Bestselling Christian author John Ortberg. Ortberg's newest release The Me I Want to Be (Zondervan, 2010) touches on the importance of spiritual growth and outlines the steps to obtaining uniquely created spirituality.
"We are excited about our partnership with Monvee," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. "Giving back is an important part of anyone's individual spiritual growth and we are honored that Monvee has chosen Soles4Souls to help illustrate that."
"People have a crying need to find a way to follow Jesus that is not mechanical or legalistic...Disciples of Christ cannot be mass produced; they have to be handcrafted." - John Ortberg
