What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
Our teams have volunteered at Operation Christmas Child collection centers together for the past couple of years. We also have lots of opportunities to talk to people about the competitions, which often leads to conversations about Christ. Bible Quiz is a wonderful witnessing tool because it opens the door for us to share our faith.
