What is Quizzing

Bible Quizzing is a ministry that encourages junior and senior high school students to study and memorize God's Word through competition. Each year a specific portion of scripture is chosen (eg. Matthew, the epistles, or 1 & 2 Corinthians) and quizzers will study that scripture throughout the school year. The competition comes when quizzers are matched with other quizzers to see who can answer the most questions about this specific portion of scripture. This is done on a weekly basis during Quiz practice, periodically at local tournaments, and annually at Regionals and Nationals.

The Basics

2 Teams

In Bible Quizzing two teams compete against each other. Each team is made up of 2-6 quizzers though only 3 quizzers can quiz at a time.

1 Quizmaster

Quiz matches are facilitated by a quizmaster. He reads the questions to the quizzers and then determines whether the answers are correct or incorrect.

15 Questions

Every quiz meet is made up of multiple quizzes or matches. Each match is made up of 15 questions. Unless its time then it goes into overtime!


In order to determine which quizzer gets to answer first, quizzers use jump seats. These are electronic devices that determine who was the first person to jump.
