"The answer is in the question"

Bible Quizzing!

Youth for Christ sponsors a very active Bible Quizzing program in Rochester, Minnesota involving over one hundred children, teens and adults in friendly competition centered on God's Word.

Monthly tournaments are held October through March, usually at Emmanuel Baptist Church on the second Saturday of each month. Many quizzers also compete in other regional and national tournaments. Everyone learns and absorbs a lot of Scripture which stays with them all their lives.

What is Bible Quizzing?

The World Bible Quiz Association administers an eight-year cycle of New Testament books. Quizzers all over America and Canada study the same Scripture material and then join together to practice and compete at a Bible Quizzing tournament. The 2007-2008 quiz season covers several smaller books of the New Testament: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon.

Who Can Quiz?

Quizzers of all ages and abilities have fun memorizing God's Word. Rochester's YFC Bible Quizzing program has two levels: Children from approximately third through sixth grade compete in the Little League while youth seventh grade and older compete in the A/B League. Younger children may compete in the A/B League, but older children may not compete in the Little League. Quizzers may compete as long as they are under 20 years old when the season starts.

What Happens at a Quiz?

Quizzing is excitement! Besides knowing the answer to a question, in order to be allowed to answer, a quizzer must be the first in his group to jump off his chair. An electronic console and seat pads identify the fastest jumper. Jumping is quite an art, and mastering it is an important part of quiz competition.

A quiz round consists of 20 questions taken from the book or books being studied. Each month the quiz covers more material than the previous month. Teams of two to four quizzers from area churches compete for points awarded for correct answers. For all the details, read the rules.
