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. JBQ offers a fun, exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God's Word. JBQ is the fastest growing discipleship program in children's ministry.
Through cooperative learning, children work together on teams to learn and understand the questions and answers from the Bible Fact-Pack. Then using cooperative competition the children meet with other church teams for a fun quzzing 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. (Taken from nationaljbq.org.)
Children work in small learning groups and are responsible for learning and helping their teammates learn. The more time the children work together and the greater the responsibilites they take on, the greater their learning will be. Since Junior Bible Quiz is built around the concept of cooperative competition, it is ideal to use cooperative learning for practice and learning sessions. Cooperative learning is a win-win situation for everyone—coaches, parents, children, teams.
The Bible Fact-Pack is a teaching tool to help children learn and assimilate important truths about the Bible and master its great teachings. The Bible Fact-Pack contains over 500 questions and answers drawn from the Bible. Some questions provide background about the Bible and its contents while other questions explore the teachings and doctrines within the Bible. Together, the questions give children a solid basis for a strong and lasting relationship with God. Questions are graded by point value; ten-point questions are the easiest, twenty-point questions are more difficult, and thirty-point questions are the most involved.
