TEEN BIBLE QUIZ
Bible Quiz is a discipleship ministry geared for teens in sixth through 12th grade. Each year a different book or books of the New Testament are memorized by students. Several times during the year students attend meets within their district in order to test their ability to memorize and understand God’s Word. District and Regional meets take place in the Spring of each year with the top teams advancing to Nationals. Each year thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded to students for their hard work.
WAYS TO IMPLEMENT BIBLE QUIZ
Though Bible Quiz utilizes competition, it is more than plaques and trophies. There many ways which Students can participate, grow in God’s Word, and actively serve in their Churches WITHOUT ever getting competitive recognition. Below is information on how this can be done.
The Discipleship Award is just that. A guided list of Christian-life items to help Students grow in their relationship with God. This award is open to ANYONE; Students, Youth Leaders, Parents…anyone can complete this award and be recognized. If you are looking for a Small Group Study, or something to give to Families for at-home discipleship, this is a great idea! Download the Discipleship Award below, in the “Downloads” section.
Every year, there is a Study Guide that accompanies the material covered during the TBQ Season. This is essentially a Bible Commentary. However, it is not as daunting as a typical commentary. Reading this is part of the Discipleship Award, but you can also use this as a stand-alone curriculum for Small Group, Sunday School, or even Church-wide study (Some Pastors buy the Study Guide, and make enough copies to distribute to their entire congregation). The copyright license allows you to do this. Purchase your Church copy by clicking here.
There are three levels of Quizzing: The Experience, Middle School(MS), and A-League.
The Experience: This level was created for new quizzers of any age. In Ohio, we STRONGLY recommend all first-year quizzers start here. The memorization requirements are not nearly as much, and there is no review from Meet to Meet. Additionally, Experience Quizzing can be done on a Meet by Meet basis. So, your church could have different quizzers at each Meet, or just register, and come to the Meets that fit your schedule. So, this allows for a lot of flexibility for churches and Students, who are actively involve in other things outside of Church. Though it is recommended for first-year quizzers, quizzers of any experience may quiz in the Experience Level. It is also a great transition for your Junior Bible Quizzers!
Middle School(MS): MS Quiz is, as the name suggests, for Middle School Students. This is for Experienced Quizzers. There is review from Meet to Meet. MS Teams can participate at the State Meet, and have the opportunity to advance to Regionals in the Spring
A-League: This League is for very experienced, motivated Quizzers. They learn ALL the Material, and review at each Meet during the year. A-League Teams participate at State, and have the opportunity to compete at Regionals and Nationals.
