A great interactive way to get your church youth group reading the bible and learning about the faith is a TextClues bible quiz. You’ll need everyone to have a cell phone so they can send/receive text messages. Then create a scavenger hunt with clues that tell them where to read in the bible to answer.
The great thing about this is everyone proceeds at their own pace. Also it feels less like a test and more like a fun learning experience.
Here’s an example of a bible quiz with an Easter theme:
