Quizzing is an effective tool that helps motivate young people to learn God’s Word, work together as a team, and expand their understanding of Scriptures. Quizzers usually range from 11-19 years old, however kids as young as 8 may still be eligible to participate with the permission of a coach and a parents support.
What is Bible Quizzing?
Why Be Involved?
Spiritual Opportunity: Family Life believes that the Bible is the inspired and the infallible Word of God. Because of this, we believe that the reading and memorizing of the Bible places a believer’s heart and mind in a position to be more easily led by the Holy Spirit. This influences a believer’s thinking, behavior, character, and values to be formed by God’s Truth, rather than by our own sinful nature.
Competition/Team Building: We believe it is beneficial for people to have opportunity for healthy competition. Bible Quizzing provides a competitive atmosphere for kids to learn to function as a team member and as an individual competitor, while also learning to encourage their opponents with honest, sportsmen-like conduct.
*For the 2021-22 Bible Quiz Season we will be quizzing over the books of ROMANS, JAMES AND REVELATION from the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible.
