GMTC Bible Olympics
Since 1999, Gospel Ministries to Children has sponsored a very
special event, designed to encourage and challenge
youth (grades 5-8) in their study and application of scripture. The Bible Olympics
is an exciting and fast-paced day of competition in a variety of events, calling for participants to apply
Bible knowledge in various ways. For their efforts (just like in
the Olympics) the winning individuals and teams take home gold,
silver, and bronze medals.
With five different events, there's something for everyone. Participants
can enter our Bible Art Contest, which challenges them to interpret
and represent a chosen verse of scripture in art form. Teams of two to four
can enter our Bible Skit Contest, in which they write and act
out a short skit to interpret their chosen scripture passage.
Our Bible Counseling event challenges teams to use the Bible to
counsel a youth of their age group going through a difficult dilemma.
Then our fast-paced and one-of-a-kind Sword Drill Relay event
is guaranteed to get them excited about searching through the
Bible. Finally, teams use real buzzers to duke it out in our Bible
Quiz Bowl event, featuring questions on a pre-announced section
of scripture; this year features Philippians (NKJV).
Go for the Gold! The Bible Olympics is an annual event held on a Saturday in October. Your
church or youth group is invited to send a team to compete in
our next annual Bible Olympics. Anyone enrolled in grades 5-8
is eligible to participate.
Let the games begin!
