LDSTech joins a growing number of LDS information sources encouraging readers to share messages of faith about Jesus Christ throughout the month of December.

Nick Pasto and Jonathan Chan authored the Scripture Mastery SUPERSTAR! game for the first-ever LDSTech Gospel Game and App Contest. This game won top honors in the youth division of the contest as well as one of the three People’s Choice awards, which were voted on by the attendees at the LDSTech Conference in October 2014.

This game is based on the 25 scriptures that seminary students are asked to know by memorization as well as the meaning of each scripture. Pasto is an early morning Seminary Teacher, so he was able to have a test audience for the game. “They loved it,” he said. “I would catch them playing it out in the hallway after class.”
