National Bible Bee

To know God’s word and Make Him Known

About

National Bible Bee was founded in 2009 with the mission to engage young people in the memorization and study of God’s Word and provide opportunities to proclaim it through local, national and broadcast competitions. Through the Summer Study, Discovery Journal, and the National Bible Bee Competition, children learn to study and memorize God’s word.

Summer Study

The Summer Study is an 8-week study that explores Scripture through reading, memorization, and activities.

Competition

Contestants compete in Scripture knowledge and memorization as they “know God’s word and make Him known”.

Discovery Journal

Explore the Bible using study tools and methods such as keywords, cross-references, and memorization.
