About Youth Quizzing

The Bible quizzing program launched as a ministry of the Church of the Nazarene during the 1964 General Nazarene Young People’s Convention and was immediately well-received. Quizzing is a unique and exciting ministry for youth that combines Bible study, mentoring, competition, fellowship, discipleship, and mission. In addition to developing a devotion to God’s Word and lifelong habits of Bible study in youth, quizzing creates and builds up a community of young disciples and servants, steadily adding to a vast pool of leadership and continually strengthening the church and its ministries. More and more teenagers and youth leaders are realizing just what an impact quizzing can have in their lives and in the lives of people around the world! 

Youth Quizzing Values

As a ministry of Nazarene Youth International (NYI), Nazarene Youth Bible Quizzing shares the values that NYI recognizes as important dimensions of the holy life. We seek to reflect these values in all we do.

  • We value the Bible… God’s unchanging truth for our lives.
  • We value Prayer… vital interactive communication with our heavenly father.
  • We value the Church… a global holiness community of faith, diverse in culture but one in Christ.
  • We value Worship… life-changing encounters with an intimate God.
  • We value Discipleship… a lifestyle of becoming like Christ.
  • We value Community… building relationships that help bind us together and to God.
  • We value Witness… sharing God’s love in word and deed.
  • We value Holiness… a work of grace whereby God, through the working of His Holy Spirit, enables us to live a life representing Christ in who we are and in everything we do.
