At the Ministry Fair, some people may have been exposed to the Teen Bible Quizzing Ministry for the first time. So, we want to give you a chance to get to know us with some basic, introductory posts. This series will give you a taste for what Bible Quizzing is.
What is Bible Quizzing?
Bible Quizzing is a ministry of the Evangelical Free Church which brings together teens to study books of the Bible in-depth over the course of a school year. We focus on learning the text - as well as getting information from the coaches on the context and meaning of the text - and compete with each other to demonstrate our knowledge. Periodically - about once a month - we get together for a Quiz Meet with other churches in our District for a competition, and about twice a year we meet for a full-blown formal Quiz Meet, complete with trophies.
What is the Goal of Bible Quizzing?
Our focus and goal for the Bible Quizzing ministry is to store up the Bible in the hearts of willing teens. The competition is a fun, but is just a means to the end of learning scripture.
How much is covered?
We go through a different section of scripture every year, covering anywhere from 1 long book of the Bible to five short books. Over the course of a cycle, we cover gospels, history, and letters from the New Testament.
For next year, we are studying the books of Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon - about 19 chapters.
If you go through all the possible years of quizzing, you will have learned 16 books of the Bible!
What would MY commitment be?
We have one practice a week, approximately 1 quiz meet a month, and once or twice a year we will do an overnight for one of those Quiz Meets. We met from September to May. There is no required cost.
