Nebraska team wins largest-ever National Junior Bible Quiz Festival

Fri, 25 Jun 2004 - 11:40 AM CST

More than 900 quizzers, coaches, officials, and Junior Bible Quiz fans representing 73 JBQ teams from around the nation gathered at Calvary Church (A/G) in Naperville, Illinois, for the record-setting 19th annual National Junior Bible Quiz Festival held June 10-12.

The 2004 National JBQ Festival was the largest JBQ festival ever as it assembled over 370 quizzers and more than 290 coaches and officials. This year, Glad Tidings (A/G) J.C.'s Kids of Omaha, Nebraska, quizzed its way to the championship. However, First Assembly of God of Goldsboro, North Carolina, claimed the second- and third-place positions with its teams, First A/G Blitz and First A/G Refs.

In JBQ quizzing, quiz teams try to "buzz in" with the correct answers to questions drawn from the "Bible Fact-Pak." The cards in the pack list 576 questions and answers drawn from the Bible and are in varying degrees of difficulty.

"It was great to see over 900 quizzers, coaches, officials, and Junior Bible Quiz fans come together for this exciting event," says Aldin Tinsley, national JBQ coordinator. "Quizzers frequently demonstrated what they learned in Junior Bible Quiz was not just head knowledge, but a heart experience by showing a Christlike spirit to the others."

The top three individual quizzers were Mark Petry of Calvary Church (A/G), Naperville, Illinois; MacKenzie Newman of Central Assembly, Superior, Wisconsin; and Courtney Olson of Emmanuel Christian Center (A/G), Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"We want to congratulate all the teams and quizzers for their outstanding performances," Tinsley says. "Of the thousands of JBQ teams across the nation, these young people represent the best of JBQ -- just making it to the national tournament is quite the accomplishment."

Plans are well underway for the 2005 National Junior Bible Quiz Festival. The 20th anniversary celebration event has already been scheduled for Thursday, June 9, through Saturday, June 11, 2005, in Naperville, Illinois.

The popularity of the Assemblies of God Centennial services, held August 5-10, were unprecedented for any U.S. Assemblies of God event. Through broadcast, live-stream and simulcast, millions of people tuned in to view the services.

According to Africa's LMTV, more than 40 million viewers tuned in to watch its Centennial broadcasts, while the Spanish network, Unsión, broadcast reached viewers throughout Central and South America. The viewership of the Centennial special on TBN is not known, but TBN reaches millions of viewers each week.

In an effort to join AG churches thorughout the U.S. to the Sunday evening celebration, the Centennial finale featured a live simulcast. 

"We had more than 1,000 simulcast sites signed up to participate in Sunday evening's celebration service," Dr. George O. Wood, AG general superintendent, says. "This represented an estimated 50,000 participants in addition to the thousands in attendance and those watching by live-stream online."

And the popularity of the services continues. Since the conclusion of the Centennial, thousands of people have viewed or downloaded the services from the archived collection found on the 100.ag.org website.

"There has been a great interest in the archived messages," states Lucas Cornwell, media technology analyst at the AG national offices. "If people want to watch or share these videos, they can do so via the 100.ag.org website." 

Cornwell says that a few of the messages receiving strong interest include Sunday evening's concluding service with Dick Brogden, the presentation of The Human Right movement, and the message from South Korea General Superintendent Yong Mok Cho.
