Launching of ABQ (Adolescent Bible Quiz) in Romania
May 30, 2017
For several years now JBQ (Junior Bible Quiz) has grown significantly throughout the country of Romania. JBQ, a discipleship program where kids hide God's Word in their hearts, has been used by many churches throughout Romania. Over time, however, the Kidz Romania team encountered a problem....kids were growing up and now begging to stay in the program and so asked if the maximum age limit could be expanded. What a nice problem to have!
AGWM Personnel, Tamara Henkes, further explains, “Although our camps were designed for 7 to 12 year olds, teens up to 18 years of age were attending. We also realized that as the kids attended camps year after year, and as the questions for Junior Bible Quiz were the same, they already had memorized the answers. So we then realized that the material needed to be advanced to allow for more of a challenge to the adolescents. We adapted the US version of Bible Quiz for teens and created ABQ (Adolescent Bible Quiz) where the adolescents now memorize an entire section of scripture and come up with answers on their own to questions regarding the scripture they memorized. For example, in Round 1 the adolescents memorized all of Acts 2 and in Round 2 they are currently memorizing all of Acts 4. Since the launch of this program last fall, we have seen an increased enthusiasm and excitement in our adolescents to get into God's Word.”
