Our Philosophy (click for more info)
... "when we are called to serve God we need to look around, see what he is already doing, and then go join him in that work".
As Bible quizzing volunteers we have been amazed at what God is doing in the hearts and minds of teens through Bible quizzing. So, it seems right to join him in that work.

pqo-News

2020.09.08 - The September question set revision is out
The September question set revision has been released by the BQF question committee.  All PQO resources have been updated to include this new release.  In addition, links to, and information about, the new question set can be found in pqo-Resources.

2020.08.11 - Corrigenda
Corri… what!?  Corrigenda are authoring errors in BQF question set revisions.   Why do you care?  Here is an example of how to salvage points from a bad question...

QM: Accoring to 6:33 - What will be added to you?
Quizzer: All these things
Time expires
QM: I'm sorry, that's an error. I needed more information.

The quizzer sits down, greatly disappointed, believing they were right - and they were!  The question set has a different, wrong question, having the words 'as well' added to the question but not appearing in the verse.  

That puts quizzers in no-win situations.   If they omit the bad information they might be given an error but if they included it they are technically wrong.  Knowing that can enable challenges that turn wasted questions into twenty points!

You'll find a list of corrigenda on the pqo-Resources page.  Just click the Corrigenda link for the revision in question.

2020.08.07 - pqo-Resources are back
You'll find a link in the navigation area above.  On that page we've collected various resources and tools that might be useful to ministry heads, table officials, coaches, quizzers and parents.

If you'd like to get your resources included there, contact the Website Administrator.   We'd be happy to post quizmeet scheduleds & results, chapter opening schedules, anouncements, anything quizzing related.

2020.08.06 - PQO has finished retooling for Matthew
We've finished updating all of the PQO resources for the 2020-21 quizzing season and the book of Matthew!   Be sure to check out all of the tools; beside pqo-Randomizer we have pqo-Quiz Master, pqo-Quizzer, pqo-Audio and pqo-Quiz Book.

2020.08.01 - Matthew updates are under way
We have begun the process of updating to support the 2020-21 quizzing material, the book of Matthew.   pqo-Randomizer, pqo-Quiz Book & pqo-Quiz Cards are all partially updated.
Where are the Jr. Quizzing resources?

Jr. Quizzing resources were designed, developed & maintained for a single ministry and yet accounted for nearly half of our efforts and expenses.  Many invitations to that ministry to acknowledge and support PQO's efforts have been declined.

Because of the need to reduce our unsupported workload and focus our mission, Jr. Quizzing resources will no longer be produced.   We sincerly wish that a collaborative arrangement could have been reached and regret the impact on Jr. quizzers.


Which version of ESV?

It has come to PQO's attention that some of our resources were derived, at least in part, from the 2007 edition of the ESV text while the BQF question set was derived from the 2016 edition.

There are always some small variations in editions which could impact quizzers.  Here is what was incorrect in our resources:

2007... Matthew 4:24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them.

2016... Matthew 4:24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, those having seizures, and paralytics, and he healed them.

2007... Matthew 17:15 said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly. For often he falls into the fire, and often into the water.

2016... Matthew 17:15 said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he has seizures and he suffers terribly. For often he falls into the fire, and often into the water.
Be aware that ALL of PQO's resources are NOW derived from what we believe to be the officical edition, the 2016 edition.
Why are we here?

A wise teacher once taught "When we are called to serve God we need to look around, see what he is already doing, and then go join him in that work."
As Bible quizzing volunteers we have been amazed at what God is doing in the hearts and minds of teens through Bible quizzing.
