Our 2018 Bible Quizzing Season

11th August

The 2018 Bible quizzing season ended on a high note with the North American Bible Quiz Tournament (NABQT) in Springfield, Missouri. And what a wonderfully anointed note it was! From the opening worship in orientation to the final prayer at the banquet, the Lord was present!

Our new Senior Bible Quizzing branding was a surprise reveal to all our teams as they gathered for orientation. The new logo combines the written Word that is memorized and studied with the spoken word that is not only asked and answered at the quiz board, but then shared with a world in need. It represents the dynamic synergy between the Logos and Rhema that is alive and powerful in the lives of young people.

With fifty-seven (57) intermediate teams and fifty-eight (58) experienced teams participating, congratulations to The Anchor Church from Zanesville, Ohio (Pastor Aaron … Read More »



That Glorious Day

30th July

Senior Bible Quizzing is an amazing ministry, and with it comes the North American Bible Quiz Tournament (NABQT). For nearly an entire week, quizzers from across the nation come together and quiz, play games, and just generally fellowship with their friends from across the country. This is the high point of the year. For nine months you’ve studied verses, you’ve memorized charts, you’ve pored over the concordance, and you then have one chance to culminate your entire year’s work in just a few short days.

You get up in front of hundreds of people and prove you’re among the best in the nation. If you don’t actually prove that, you can just go and hang out with your friends anyway. Sounds like a win/win to me. There’s the Prayer and Share service, which gives last year quizzers the opportunity to … Read More »

108 teams met in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on July 30, 2016 for the Senior Bible Quizzing (SBQ) North American Bible Quiz Tournament (NABQT). The Experienced (ages 15-18) and Intermediate (ages 12-14) divisions each had 54 teams. By Wednesday, August 3, we had two undefeated champions—one from the east coast and one from the west coast. The list below shows the team and individual winners.

The NABQT was the culmination of this year’s study on the books of Romans and James. UPCI students were able to dig deep into the truths shared in these important books to our apostolic faith.

In 2017, SBQ celebrates its fiftieth anniversary under the theme Rooted: Our History – Our Destiny. Our book of study will be The Acts of the Apostles. One of the outgrowths of SBQ since its inception in 1967 is the development of leaders. May … Read More »



You Do Have Time for Bible Quizzing

3rd January

“…I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one” (I John 2:14).

For over four decades, Bible quizzing has equipped the young Apostolic church with a firm doctrinal foundation, nourishment to grow, confidence to pursue ministry, and power to overcome the wicked one. The ministry of Bible quizzing should remain a priority for three reasons: the young church has time, choices, and purpose.

The primary reason people do not join Bible quizzing is a perceived lack of time. USA Today reports, among eight to eighteen year olds, American youth spend between eight and a half hours to thirteen hours per day using media, including watching television and over one hour per day using mobile devices. Approximately six hours every day are spent on the computer, … Read More »
