Bible Drill helps students in grades four through 12 increase their knowledge, memorization and application of Scripture. We exist to help you organize Bible Drill in your church.


If your church decides to participate in Bible Drill, please register your church using the buttons below.  Please notify your association of your intent. If you participated in Bible Drill last year and do not have any information updates, you do not need to register again. Additional details are outlined below, including information about approved Bibles, scholarship details and events.

In order for a student to proceed to the final state drills and qualify for scholarship and state title, the student must be from a participating N.C. Baptist church. A student may win the scholarship only once, even if they are the finalist winner in another division of the YBD/HSBD/or YST in a later year.
