Senior Bible Quizzing
Bible Quizzing is a ministry to get our children and youth into the Word of God and His Word into them. Paul instructed Timothy to, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15). We recognize that this endeavor will not happen accidentally or even naturally, but requires significant study and hard work just as it did for Timothy.
The Pentecostals of NWA Bible QuizTeams consistently place in their state finals with Will Riley as the Quiz Director. His teams have consistently placed at the state finals and went to the national competition.
