Bible Quizzing is a ministry developed for young people to learn and grow in the knowledge of God’s word. Alongside the spiritual benefits, quizzing develops character, discipline, and intellect. Teams comprised of ages 6-18 learn pre-determined Scriptures and compete against other teams locally and even nationally.
Quizzers must learn 160 to over 500 verses and from these verses be able to answer multiple part, cross-reference, and quotation questions. Though extremely competitive, its Christ centered nature helps quizzers develop a deep love and respect for the Word of God. In a Handbook for New Coaches, the Texas District Sunday School Committee states, “No other program sponsored by the United Pentecostal Church can claim a higher percentage of participants who remain faithful to God and the Church than can Bible quizzing. Statistics reveal that, of those who spend at least three consecutive years in a quizzing program, 90% never leave the church, and 70% of the small minority who do leave eventually return." (A Handbook for New Coaches produced by the Texas District Sunday School Committee, page 7.)
Involvement in bible quizzing is an investment in the salvation and overall growth of young people.
