Registering after April 1st

We’re happy to make accommodations for your team if you need to register after the April 1st deadline. However, there are some important things to note regarding your late registration as per the National Bible Bowl office:

Each team who registers late must provide a round of 17 toss-ups and 15 bonus questions to use for the round robin portion of the tournament. There will be an additional $50 fee for late registrants payable to National Bible Bowl. These questions must be written according to the guidelines as found on the Bible Bowl website under ABOUT/RULES/QUESTION WRITING RULES using the official question writing program. The phrase “THESE QUESTIONS WERE NOT PROVIDED BY NATIONAL BIBLE BOWL” must also appear on the front cover sheet of these rounds.

Further inquiries about question writing can be directed to keith@biblebowl.net.

Opportunity to Use My Abilities for God

“At KCU I was able to learn under the guidance of the best ministry professors and administrators. KCU gave me
my first opportunity to use my abilities for God. KCU gave me an opportunity to excel athletically, artistically, and
academically. But most of all, when I look back on my time at KCU, I will remember the people. I will remember the
smiles, I will remember the laughs my friends and I shared. KCU is a family and one I am very proud to be in.”
