The Summer Study takes participants on a journey through the Scriptures asking questions designed to help them learn tools to discover the Bible for themselves. Whether they are studying on their own or taking part within a church or other hosted group, the participants use the 8-week Discovery Journal to explore the Scriptures in as little as 20 minutes a day.

At the end of the Summer Study, participants have the opportunity to qualify for the National Bible Bee Competition. The NBBC invites 360 of the top contestants from around the nation who compete for over $100,000 in prize money. But beyond testing the contestants on Bible knowledge and memorization, the NBBC provides an opportunity to proclaim God’s Word and find fellowship and encouragement within the body of Christ.

Through the National Bible Bee, I have learned personal disciplines, met so many wonderful friends, discovered how to study the Word of God effectively, and memorized more of the Word of God than I ever thought was possible.” -Joshua Bontrager (18)

God has used the National Bible Bee in tremendous ways to shape my character and draw me closer to Himself. I used to think of Bible memory and study as a duty, but now it is ‘a joy and the delight of my heart.’ (Jer 15:16) I praise God for it and how God uses this ministry to bless thousands across the nation.” – Anna Moss
