>Nationals Bible Quiz Tournament

Writing in Saint Louis where 45 teams of seven teens each have competed the last two days in round-robin style at the Bible Quiz Fellowship National Tournament.

Today we begin the actual elimination tournament…Midlands’ “top” team (Messengers) begins seeded fifth! We shall see…I will be quizmastering in the top rooms all day…

Quizzing, BQF style, is an incredible tool to get the Word into students, and students into the Word. We have teams from several states competing; always room for more! I’d love to assist other communities get a quiz program started…

It is competitive (this years material is the gospel of Luke; next year 1 and 2 Corinthians and Titus)…it is difficult…and it is so hard to describe in words!

But the Lord blesses it in so many ways, and lives are changed, equipped, encouraged and edified as the Word of God does the Work of God.

Pray for the students as they undergo the stress of this day; that attitudes would honor the Lord, that, “win” or “lose” all would be focused on Jesus!

Can you tell I love Bible quizzing?

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
