8 Steps to Starting JBQ in Your Church:


Contact the District Office and let them know that you are interested.


Promote it to your students and parents. We encourage you to try to have at least 5 students involved, as a goal.


Assign your students into teams with a coach. Teams can be from 2 to 10 members. Coaches can be church volunteers or parents.


Get the study materials from the National Office. (check the links above)


Get a quiz box (and more, hopefully one for every two teams. We’ll help, lots of churches have these in their closets)


Start studying with your teams.

A) A Sunday School class every week,
B) With lunch after church the first Sunday of the month,
C) With donuts the last Saturday of the month,
D) With all students the last Wed nite of the month
E) Small Group meetings at coaches houses every other week


Schedule the meets on your church calendar and get the schedule to each family involved.


Recruit your two officials per team for meets (parents, van drivers, etc.)


What is Bible Quiz?

Each Bible Quiz meet consists of several rounds, usually 5 or 6. We usually start at 9:30am and finish by 3:30pm, with a half hour lunch break around noon. Each round, different teams will be matched up against each other.

A match consists of two teams and 3 or 4 officials. Teams can have from 2 to 4 people buzzing in, and subs are allowed during the match. Most teams are 6 or 7 students. Each team also has an adult coach leading them throughout the year (usually a parent). The officials are the Quizmaster (reads the questions and leads the room), Judges (watch the rules and check answers), and the Scorekeeper. Each team is asked to provide 2 officials for the meets.


Why Bible Quiz?

Though I’ve been DYD for a decade, I only recently functioned as the Main Director over BQ in Nebraska. I can honestly say I think it’s one of the most important programs available to you.

We live in a world where most of our young people don’t know the Bible at all. Reflection on the Word of God has been found to be the most important element of discipleship. So, how are you helping you students study the Bible?

You may have an effective strategy for this, and if so please share it with me so I can share it with others! But as I’ve traveled, I haven’t seen much activity in this area, other than Bible Quiz.

I’ve learned that over 80% of BQ students are still serving God later in life (compared to 7 out of 10 graduates not attending church one year later). I’ve watched new teams join, and give their students a sense of accomplishment with God’s Word. I’ve seen students under 10 recite great verses of the Bible better than I can.
