Awana has changed the way Bible Quizzes are held. For the majority of the United States, individual churches will be required to host and organize the Bible Quizzing for their area. This could be a regional quiz as many have come to know, it could be a few churches coming together, or it could be a church holding an “in-house” quiz. Consequently, quizzing could have many more variables in how it is held, as churches decide how they individually want to hold quizzing. What rules they follow, topics covered, versions covered, formats used, etc.
With that transition, along with Awana revising the Truth & Training material in the fall of 2016 (originally the fall of 2015), I do not plan to make any revisions to the study guides (except possibly correct typos and errors) until the revised T&T materials are released in 2016. During the summer of 2016 (if the Lord tarries), I will assess the “state” of Bible Quizzing and decide at that time if I will develop new guides for the new materials.
I would be interested in hearing if your church is hosting an Awana Bible Quiz this year (2014-15) and next (2015-16) as well as your thoughts about the future of Awana Bible Quizzing.
