In 1979, Pastor Trevor H. C. Baker, while serving as Youth Ministries Director of our Conference, was impressed by the Holy Spirit to conceive and create the Bible Bowl game in his quest to awaken the interest of the young people within his youth societies, and strengthen their devotional life. Each year youth, young adults, and adults within their respective peer groups, after studying selected books of the Bible, gather together to play Bible Bowl games. These peer groups are Pre- Junior, ages 6-9, Junior Youth, ages 10-15, Senior Youth, ages 16-22, Young Adult, ages 23-35, and Adult, ages 36+. There are Area, Conference and National level competitions. These games are intended to encourage youth, young adults and adults to study the Word of God and to find a degree of enjoyment while doing so.
