Here is a breakdown of both the Veteran and Novice divisions of adult quiz at the 2015 National Finals event. Bryan Turner will be writing the questions again this year.
Veteran: quizzing over Romans 8, 12, and all of James (168 verses)
Novice: quizzing over James only (108 verses)
Getting more students into the Word is the foundation of Teen Bible Quiz. More than competition, which is part of it, TBQ strives to see students discipled through the Word. That's why we're excited to introduce The Human Right movement to the BQ community.
Talk about human rights can be heard everywhere we turn. And while the church should be passionate about human rights and ending the injustices of human trafficking, relieving hunger, and providing clean drinking water, is there a right every person has that's greater than having a physical need met? The Human Right movement (THR) believes the greatest injustice is for someone to live and die without an opportunity to know Jesus.
National Youth Ministries launched THR at the National Fine Arts Festival last summer and then introduced the movement to the entire Assemblies of God fellowship at the 100 year Centennial Celebration. More than a theme, this movement has captured the attention of the Church across the country and even around the world.
The heart behind THR goes hand in hand with the mission of Bible Quiz so we've included some elements of THR in the Acts materials. You'll find even the graphics for Acts are meant to catch the attention of someone who sees a quizzer carrying their scripture portion around, opening the door for conversations about Jesus. Some of the requirements for the Discipleship Award also incorporate elements of THR into them.
This is going to be a great year and we anticipate all that God is doing and is going to do as more students grow in their faith through scripture memorization and living out The Human Right movement where they live!
Every season, teams across the country utilize the Study Guide CD to complete the requirements for the Discipleship Award. The Study Guide CD contains the commentary over the book(s) being studied, as well as the list of applications required to earn the Discipleship Award.
For the upcoming season over Acts, we are introducing the updated Study Guide Plus CD. This resource still has the commentary over Acts as well as the required applications for the Discipleship Award, but it now includes specific resources for those participating in the Acts Experience Division. This gives teams one resource that contains all of the study questions and materials they need in order to have a successful season in the Acts Experience and the price point will remain the same at $20.
We have seen exciting growth in the BQ ministry this year, much due to the new Romans and James Experience. We anticipate this new resource allowing even more students to get involved, memorizing the Word, and continuing to grow in their faith in the 2015-2016 season.
