Competition is a great motivator for kids in Junior Bible Quiz. However, as the culmination of another quiz season is rapidly approaching, we need to consider again how to motivate students to “Conquer the Cards.” So what was that church missing that we can apply to our situation in JBQ? This article offers three motivating factors that can help bring about excellence in JBQ.
In JBQ, it is impossible to minister to children and parents if we do not know God’s love for us. We must live in God’s love and demonstrate His love to the children and adults in our JBQ ministry. When parents witness and experience His love, they (as officials) will be able to reflect His love to the children (quizzers). This article points out some good tasks to follow for JBQ officials and leaders.
At a quiz meet, the adults in the room set the tone for the attitudes and interactions during each match. If the officials are smiling and happy, the quizzers are more relaxed. If the coach jokes with the other team, the kids view them more positively. It is our responsibility as JBQ leaders to promote this desired fellowship. This article shows 10 simple steps to ensure our JBQ meets set a positive tone.
JBQ is not merely about competition, although that is a hook used to draw kids and their families. However, if we are trying to instill scriptural truths and principles into children, with the aim of Christlikeness, this ministry provides a unique opportunity. With the Master Seal program, JBQ aids parents in building a firm foundation without the necessity of competitive excellence. Children can build a significant amount of Bible knowledge that will not return empty.
The information in the Junior Bible Quiz Bible Fact-Pak is the best information that you can ever have. It is the catechism of the Assemblies of God. If we could teach all of our kids this information, we would ground them in the Word of God that would establish them for life. That's a pretty powerful statement, but the key is that we must teach it to them in a way that they learn the information. We have to have a way to transfer this knowledge from the Fact-Pak to that child's brain.
