In the Central Texas area, Junior Bible Quiz teams from area churches get together five times a year to compete with one another. We have churches from Bastrop to Burnet, Dripping Springs to Taylor, and San Marcos to Jarrell.

The Central Texas area is a part of the much-larger North Texas District.  We meet up with teams from across the district every year during District Finals in March, as well as at occasional invitational meets.

Any area church is welcome to quiz with us!  If you would like to quiz within our Junior Bible Quiz area, contact Ron Birrell, our area coordinator.  He'll be glad to help you get started!

Why We Quiz

Question.  Question number 17 for 30 points.  How powerful is God's word?

Answer:  Hebrews 4:12  "For the word of God is living and active.  Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."  (NIV)

Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) was created and designed to help children develop a love for the Bible and an understanding that its truth can guide their daily lives. JBQ offers a fun, exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God’s Word. Through cooperative learning, children work together on teams to learn and understand the questions and answers from the Bible Fact-Pak. Then using friendly competition the children meet with other teams for a fun quizzing match. There are twenty questions in a match, with two teams of quizzers trying to buzz in first to get the first shot at the answers.

Why JBQ?

  • Could it be the fun competition that inspires the children to study God’s Word?
  • Could it be the studies that have shown 88% of children raised in evangelical homes leave the church, never to return, BUT almost 90% of children who have participated with their involved parents for at least four years DO NOT walk away from their faith?
  • Could it be the awards and recognition that help the children to write God’s Word on their hearts?
  • Could it be the studies that have demonstrated that memorization skills, which are the core of JBQ, have greatly improved scholastic aptitudes?
  • Still not convinced?  Junior Bible Quiz is not just a game - it's a tool to systematically teach the truths of the Bible to children of elementary-school age. Although it's fun to earn trophies or medals, what really matters is the eternal reward these children will receive if they follow Jesus throughout their lives.  JBQ is one way to help them do that.  Consider the facts presented in this video...

Junior Bible Quiz:

It's not just a game.
It's faith for a lifetime.
