The Bible Master Award, or the Master Seal, is a
great way to recognize an individual's efforts
in mastering the questions and answers from the
Bible Fact-Pak. The Bible Fact-Pak
cards and related resources can be ordered
Gospel Publishing House.
The Bible Master Program
allows individuals to improve their knowledge
and understanding of the Bible but can also be
used in group settings. It can be used along
with Sunday School curriculum, in Children's
Church, in Christian schools, at camps, and in
other children's ministries programs. It's a
wonderful activity for families to do together.
Each family member can be working on his or her
own level while studying the information
together. Many families have used the Bible
Fact-Pak for their family devotions and in
Not only can the Bible Master
Program be used with children but it can also
recognize adults who have mastered the material
in the Bible Fact-Pak. Achievement is
recognized through the award certificate and
One or more persons
should be selected to oversee the awards program
and check the individual's mastery of knowledge.
The Bible Fact-Pak cards should be
separated by point value, placed in three
different containers, and thoroughly mixed. The
cards are drawn one at a time, beginning with
the 10-point cards. Ask the questions until the
individual has satisfactorily completed the
level requirements or has exceeded the maximum
number of errors. If the individual is unable to
complete a level, encourage the person to work
for at least a week on the questions and then
try again. The individual may try as many times
as needed to complete a level. The goal is for
the individual to learn and understand the
questions and answers.
Because the Master
Seal reflects a great achievement, it should be
presented in a fitting ceremony. One option is
to award the seal in front of the entire
congregation, and provide a frame in which to
place the certificate. Explain to the
congregation what the Master Seal is all about
and what the recipient has accomplished.

contains ten each of the certificates, and ten
