Teen Bible Challenge

Teen Bible Challenge is an inter-denominational organization that promotes scripture memory. Teen Bible Challenge believes that the Bible is the Word of God and that when planted in the hearts of people, it can affect real change. TBC believes that Scripture can shed light on lives and lead them in day-to-day life.

Teen Bible Challenge was created by Les Johnson, who after working part-time as a youth director, observed how little scripture this generation of youth had committed to memory.

From Les Johnson - The founder

“I felt God’s Spirit prompting me to do something different through His strength and leading. As a result, in October 1995, I stepped out in faith and asked five junior high students to participate on a Bible quiz team. Two years later, a handful of teams from area churches began competing together on a monthly basis throughout the school year. After seeing how the lives of these teens changed for His glory, God placed on my heart the need to develop a board and incorporate Teen Bible Challenge to preserve the ministry that God had raised up. My personal desire from the beginning has always been for students to plant God’s Word in their hearts through the memorization of Scripture. My hope was that Scripture would make them wise for salvation and help them to be able to discern between good and evil in our world today”

Competitions

Small groups prepare students September – March for monthly competitions using fun and creative ways of memorizing scripture. With these fun methods of memorization, students will be able to successfully memorize each competition’s study material. All small groups study the same material based on the 2011 copyright of the “New International Version” of the Bible.
