What Is Teen Bible Quizzing?
Teen Bible Quiz Cycle
It is a unique ministry that combines a study of the Bible, competition,
fellowship and disciple-making into one program that is attractive to teenagers.
Endorsed and governed by Nazarene Youth International, teen quizzing aims to become:
1. An avenue of meaningful Bible Study for youth to attain a deep and intimate knowledge of Scripture
2. A means of increasing fellowship and interaction among youth around the world
3. An integral part of the outreach and discipleship aspects of local church youth ministry
4. A medium for the training and mentoring of youth leadership
5. A catalyst for encouraging active participation in ministry and mission projects
6. A bridge for building relationships between youth from different backgrounds
7. An arena for exciting Christian competition.
