About Junior Bible Quiz

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 lives daily. Junior Bible Quiz 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 cooperative 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 beat each other to the buzzers to get the first shot at the answers. It has been said that JBQ is the fastest growing discipleship ministry in children’s ministry.

JBQ is the fastest-growing ministry in the country. It is a great way to equip parents for teaching their kids the Word of God.

2020 JBQ  

The 2020 JBQ League Quizzing Season has been cancelled. However, JBQ is NOT cancelled! We have some great resources we are offering for the 2020-2021 JBQ Season, that you can use for your Church!

JBQ Meet in a Box

These are all the materials you need to have your own Meet at your Church. It includes Officials Tips, Scoresheets, Guidelines, AND Question Sets with our usual breakdowns for A and B League. These are free downloads. We can also print them and ship them, upon request for additional cost.

Game Day

These are materials to have a fun, single-day Event at your Church. You can include the whole Family with this type of Event. There are Games, activities, and themed Question sets to give out ahead of this Event. We will have FOUR different sets of questions during the year, with different themes!

Bead/Sticker Challenge

If your kids have been to Camp, they know how this works! There are specific, themed question sets to learn. As you complete the questions, you earn beads (or stickers), and additional beads as you complete a section.

We will also have our Discipleship Award and JBQ Bible Master Program available, as always.
The State Meet is still scheduled for March 26-27th, 2021. We will plan on the celebration, as well as a couple of changes that will be announced later. We hope these resources will help you continue to disciple your kids and give you some extra tools to encourage Biblical literacy within your local Churches. Have a great year!
