Our Objectives

Teen Bible Challenge (TBC) is a para-church ministry based in Grand Rapids, Michigan that assists churches, schools, camps and organizations in establishing Bible memorization programs for youth.  It’s good!

TBC trains leaders to help youth memorize scripture according to their unique learning style in fun and creative ways.

TBC also trains officials to facilitate monthly competitions within each district.

Making Memorizing Scripture Fun and Easy

Here at TBC, we believe that learning and memorizing can be fun and simple. We understand that everyone has their own learning styles and ways of memorizing material; therefore, we have developed several methods of memorization that match up with different learning styles in order to help each individual succeed in our program.

Teen Bible Challenge

The Original, teens in grades 6-12 competing together while memorizing scripture.

Kids Bible Challenge

Just as fun, and geared towards the younger kids in grades 3-5.

Community Bible Challenge

Get the whole church involved in this great community experience.


Our yearly Tournament, all ages welcomed and encouraged

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to most common questions

TBC has had a major impact on my life. God’s Word is so powerful. God has used the verses I have put in my heart to shape me into the person I am today. It has changed me in ways I can’t even describe. I would not be the person I am today without the words that I have committed to memory-even when I wasn’t committing them for the right reasons. At first, I did it because it was fun, I could be smart, and be better at my brothers at something. But then God’s Word started changing me. It is just amazing what God can do through His Word. No matter what, even in you are learning these verses for the absolute wrong reason, God can change you through them. So stay with it.


8 years in the Program

TBC is so important to me. I am just so impressed with how much I can learn. If you think about it, 50 verses is a lot of memory. And they don’t come back as nothing. I can remember so many instances where I thought, ‘what should I do in this situation?’. Then I would remember a verse I learned years ago that would help. TBC has helped me be so much more enthusiastic about what I do in life. And it is just SO MUCH FUN. I am not at competitions and at practices because I am being made to. I come because I ENJOY it so much!
