       Engaging teenagers and youths with God’s Word will help them overcome social vices and restiveness thereby creating a better society. 

The average Nigerian youth is confused about what life got to offer and is in search for a meaning for his/her life. This search has driven many young people to all social vices and have their lives damaged.

A group of four teenagers (boys) in Ogun State were caught in the act performing money ritual after they had beheaded the girlfriend of one of the members of the gang.  Another group of four teenage girls who are said to be students of a secondary school in Lagos have been reportedly caught with human parts concealed inside their school bags.  This is the story of many young people in Nigerian churches.

 Where We Help The Nigerian Youth in Churches-

 The Bible Society has put together a National Bible Competition which will start from the grassroots in all the States in the Nation. Participants will be drawn from the local churches in the four stages of the competition. The stages are listed below-

Auxiliary stage- This involves all Local churches in the grassroots (local governments) across the nation. The event takes place in February/March every year. For 2022, it would be held on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

Area Stage- This is the intra- State level of the competition where qualifiers from the grassroots (local government will compete for the next level. The event takes place in May every year, however, it has been scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2022.

Zonal Stage- This is the inter-State level of the competition where qualifiers from States meet on zonal basis. The event takes place in July every year. Saturday, July 16, 2022 has been fixed for the competition as this stage.

National stage- Winner in each zone will meet to compete for a national champion. This event holds in Lagos, Nigeria. The event takes place in October every year while that for 2022 will be held on Friday, October 28, 2022.

 HOW IT RUNS: The competition is in written format. Participants are given specific books of the Bible to study and they will be examined based on the books studied. The book for this year (2022) is Jeremiah and the theme is Jesus, the Gate. The recommended Bible version is Contemporary English Version (CEV). The best three students will qualify to the next stage of the competition.

 Testimony- Over a thousand young people participate from grassroots every year thereby having the opportunity to interact with the word of God and have their lives transformed by the virtues drawn from the Bible.
