Printable Quiz Schedule High-level schedule of all quizzes throughout the year. This is provided at District NYI Convention. Yes
Weekly Schedule Detailed week-by-week schedule. This is what Stephen uses for Crosspoint--feel free to adjust for your church. Yes
Photo Release Form All quizzers need to have this filled out and signed by a parent/guardian in order for us to be able to post pictures/videos of them from the quizzes. It should be submitted to Stephen at the first quiz they attend. Yes
USA/Canada Youth Quizzing Your primary source for Nazarene materials. A bunch are available for download directly from that page, but you'll also need to order some materials, so here's a direct link for those: Some
Set Maker Every church should register one account to generate questions for practice. The criteria for generating sets is very flexible, and these are the official Nazarene questions. Stephen generates the sets for district quizzes from here (albeit with a district-level license that includes more questions). Some quizzers may like to have their own license as well so they can generate their own sets for practicing at home.

Note: This is included in the "Coach's Kit" that is available from The Foundry, so you don't need to pay for this separately if you get the kit (a coupon code will come with the kit that you will then enter when you register for Set Maker).
QuizStuff QuizStuff is where you can buy all of the electronic equipment/software:
  • Jump seats
  • Laptop computers
  • Interface boxes (to connect the seats with the computer)
  • QuizMachine (the Quizzing software)
Game Ideas for Practices Some game ideas presented by a couple coaches from the east coast. Unfortunately for most of our teams, the majority of these require a fairly large number of quizzers. Yes
Teaching Study Methods A PowerPoint from Q2012 on various methods of studying. Yes
A District Director's Blog A blog with resources, study tips, and other info about quizzing, created by David Phillips, the quiz director for the Louisiana district. Yes

Memory Verse List Two spreadsheets of memory verses:
  • "Reference" sheet: the list of memory verses in the order they appear in Scripture.
  • "Prejump" sheet: the list of memory verses in alphabetical order.
Both have the first word or first few words that make the memory verse unique. The idea is that someone who learns all the memory verses would only need those few words to know exactly which verse it is. Many quizzers will mark these in their Scripture portions.
Memory Verse Flash Cards Flash cards for learning/reviewing memory verses. We usually prepare these by District NYI Convention to hand out to anyone who wants a set. Contact Stephen to see if he has any available. Yes
Unique Word List Two spreadsheets of words that are used only once in the entire book, though you may only find the "Chronological" sheet useful. Many quizzers will highlight all of these words in their Scripture portions. That way, as they study, these words stand out to them and it helps with remembering the material when they hear the words used in questions. Yes

The Bible Project

John 1-12

John 13-21
A great video summary of the material. Yes
JingleSeeds A couple people on the ENC field create a CD of all the memory verses put to song. A couple samples are available on the website (on the "About" page). By turning verses into songs, some people find them easier to memorize. No
Acme QuizMaster Acme offers other products, but we would encourage you to get almost everything else from The Foundry (see "Coaches / Planning" section above). However, QuizMaster has no equivalent among Nazarene products and may be a really fun way for teens to study/practice on their own. Watch the tutorials to see what it is capable of, and also note that you can try it for 10 days for free after downloading. No
Scripture Typer




A website to help with memorization by typing the verse(s) you choose. It starts with all words visible to help learn it, then removes every other word when you are ready, and then removes everything. It requires you to type the verses letter-for-letter, so spelling is important, but it gives you immediate visual cues when you've typed something incorrectly. To get started:
  • Click Sign Up and create an account.
  • A statistics bar will appear at the bottom of the page. Click the "Statistics" box to edit your profile and update your settings as desired. At the very least, make sure you enter your name (you can check the box to not display your last name).
  • Scroll to the very bottom of the page and navigate to Memory Groups > Bible Quizzing
  • Scroll through the list of Bible Quizzing Groups and find "WI NYI". Click that, and then click the "Join" button on the WI NYI page to become part of the group.
  • Navigate to Scripture Typer > Preferences and select the options you want there. You most likely want "Punctuation" to be set to "Keep Going if I Miss it" (otherwise, it will require exact punctuation and capitalization in addition to exact spelling) and "Communication" to have "Block all Communications from" checked so you don't get a bunch of spam from them.
  • Explore the rest of the site to learn how it works.
  • You may want to have a collection of the memory verses for the year, but you'll need to create your own.
  • You would also need to create your own collection if you want one with every single verse from this year's material.
Also note the free smartphone and tablet apps.



Quizlet allows users to create sets of flash cards for anything and play games with them. A bunch of sets have already been created for Luke memory verses.
  • Create an account.
  • Click this link to join our Wisconsin NYI Bible Quizzing "class." An e-mail will be sent to Stephen to confirm, so contact him if he hasn't approved your request within a day or two (or if you need access sooner than that).
  • Our "class" contains sets that are specific to each of our district quizzes to make it easy to study the verses for each quiz. Sets are also available for each individual chapter, as well as all the regional tournaments like QuizFest and Sterling. The set names all start with "WI NYI", they reflect the chapter(s) they include, and they include the applicable tournament name or month abbreviation, so you can easily search for the set you want.
  • There are sets for the full verse text and for just the prejumps.
Also note the smartphone and tablet apps. The website has more game options, but the app seems like a pretty good substitute for carrying actual flashcards around.

Stéphane Tibi created these resources to help people who are more visual learners. From the full "map" of all the books of the Bible, click the picture(s) for the book(s) we're studying. Each chapter has its own tile, with those tiles being grouped into larger sections, and each tile usually has several graphics to illustrate each verse or a few verses together. Yes
