About the Founders

Pictures of Jonathan R. Bailey & Joshua Bailey, co-founders of Dwell Jonathan R. Bailey & Joshua Bailey | We’ve been in the faith-based space for 12 years now and love it. Our driving passion is to build companies and products that help advance the kingdom of God. We began our journey in 2006 when started our first company (gracewaymedia.com). Graceway comes alongside pastors and helps provide a visual complement to whatever it is their preaching on a given Sunday. We were blessed with an opportunity to sell that business in 2012, and immediately began work on a new company (Lightstock.com). It’s geared towards helping faith-based designers and artists tell better stories through the use of professional faith-focused stock resources. Today, it’s a thriving platform that sees thousands of downloads every month.

For the last ten years, we have had this idea for a beautiful, easy-to-use, scripture listening app in the back of our heads. Mainly, we wanted an app like this for ourselves. For the longest time, we figured someone else would build it because, in a world of smartphone dominance, it feels like such a no-brainer. In 2016, we finally found ourselves with the freedom to go out and tackle it.

Since then, we’ve been going slow, building a team, recording audio, and doing development work as resources have allowed. When we told the world what we were up to last September we were shocked by the response. In a three-week period, we had over 7,000 people express interest in Dwell! This gave us a boost of confidence and validated the need for an app like this. We cannot wait to bring this app into existence!
