CALENDAR & RESOURCES
Junior Bible Quiz is a ministry that allows parents and kids, grades K thru 6, the chance to put into practice their Bible knowledge. Asking questions and giving answers in fun competition encourages kids to learn more. You can start JBQ with minimal expense and grow from there. The tools needed are a Bible Fact-Pak, 3 or more kids and at least 3 adults willing to have fun with children. JBQ teaches good study habits, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. It also creates new and lasting friendships.
JBQ is designed for children in grades K-6.
A team consists of 2 to 8 quizzers and a coach (an assistant coach is also permissable).
As few as 2 and as many as 4 quizzers may quiz at once for each team and substitutions are allowed.
A church or school may have an unlimited number of teams.
When a quizzer "quizzes out" he/she must sit out the remainder of that particular match. This keeps one individual from totally dominating any single match. A quizzer "quizzes out" by answering six questions correctly in one 20 question match (in which case ten bonus points are awarded), or by answering 3 questions incorrectly in one such match.
A quizzer can also foul out be getting 3 individual fouls in one 20 question match. Fouls and incorrect answers are mutually exclusive, meaning that a quizzer can remain in the match with two fouls and two incorrect answers.
The material we quiz over is a finite set of 576 questions called the Fact Pak.
The Fact Pak was developed in the mid 1970's by the Assemblies of God church Sunday School department, and was modified once in 2002. The Fact Pak did not change for the first 25 years, and is not expected to change at any time in the near future.
The questions are divided according to point values (10, 20, & 30), and difficulty, with 30 point questions the most difficult, and 10 point questions the least difficult. Each point value includes questions covering basic Bible content, Scripture memorization, and theology. There are 288 10 point questions, 192 20 point questions, and 96 30 point questions in the Fact Pak.
For A League (K - 6th grade, and the most advanced form of quizzing), a 20 question round of quizzing consists of ten 10 point questions, seven 20 point questions, and three 30 point questions.
There are no denominational limits in Tennessee JBQ. Churches from many denominations participate in JBQ at all levels. We have had State, Regional, and National Finalists from churches in the Baptist, and Methodist denominations, as well as Non-Denominational churches.
