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.
