Be a part of our Bible Drill Mission Projects this Summer

During the summer is a great time to look for ways to serve through mission trips and ministry activities. This summer, Georgia Baptist Bible Drill and Speakers has opportunities for older kids, students, Bible Drillers, families and adults of all ages to serve and be a part of the ministry of Bible Drill.

The projects are flexible depending on the time frame your family or group has available to serve:

  • Maybe you are a family headed to NE Georgia, SC, or NC for summer vacation but want to make a difference by serving for part of a day. . . 
  • Maybe you are looking for an opportunity for your older kids or students to take a day and serve this summer . . .
  • Maybe you want to offer a 3-day preteen or family mission trip opportunity . . .

Our Georgia Baptist Bible Drill and Speakers Ministry Area is located in Monroe, GA and would welcome your assistance.

Examples of opportunities to serve:

  • Sorting and organizing Bible Drill and Student Speaker Resources
  • Assisting with inventory of resources
  • Preparing items for our e-store
  • Administrative assistance – making copies, proofreading, preparation of judge notebooks; data entry
  • Preparation for 2020 Bible Drills
  • Prayer huddles
  • Collection of items (contact Georgia Baptist Bible Drill and Speakers for a list of current needs)

Welcome to Bible Drill and Speakers

Welcome to our Bible Drill and Speakers website/blog.  Our desire is that this will serve as a resource for individuals and churches as students are discipled using Bible Drill and Student Speakers.

Bible Drill is a journey of kids and students hiding God’s Word in their hearts for a lifetime.  Through Bible Drill, kids and students become familiar with God’s Word by spending time in the Bible.  They memorize scripture and the 66 books of the Bible as well as learn Bible Skills (how to locate books, and scripture passages.). In Nothing Less: Engaging Kids in a Lifetime of Faith by Jana Magruder, LifeWay research found that the number one predictor of spiritual health as young adults is that they regularly read the Bible as Kids.   Bible Drill helps lay this spiritual foundation in the lives our kids.  One of the joys of Bible Drill for me has been to see students receive their 9-year award for Bible Drill.  This 9 year award represents 9 years of regularly spending time in God’s Word and hiding it in their hearts.  May we all spend time hiding His Word in our hearts – regardless of our age . . .
