1. Study Expectations
Bible Bowl requires regular daily study and prayer. Depending on your age and experience with Bible Bowl, the amount of study will vary – but you will need to commit to study a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Every player will benefit from memorizing a verse or two per day. Practices and round robins are more fun when you have prepared yourself by studying.
2. Spiritual Commitment
Bible Bowl players commit a significant amount of their time in studying God’s Word. We hope that what they learn will help them to be an example to others. We expect that they will want to participate in other activities at church, such as VOX, Sunday morning worship and other congregational events.
One of the major goals of Bible Bowl is to develop in each student a life long spiritual commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ.
3. Commitment to Follow the Code of Conduct
We expect each player to know and follow the Bible Bowl Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.
The mission statement can be found at the beginning of the packet, and students will receive the code of conduct at the first practice.
As such, we stress Christian attitudes and behavior. We expect each student to exhibit these attitudes toward each other, toward other teams, toward the sponsors and coaches and toward all others they meet. We also expect that the words used at all Bible Bowl events and practices bring honor to God. Slang words or phrases are not acceptable.
