Bio

Notable Results

I coached rom 1983-1996. We won four Alpha-Omegas, and took 2nd four times.

Favorite Scripture

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize." - 1 Corinthians 9:24 

I believe that God wants us to live our life, and to quiz each quiz, in such a way as to win the prize.

Questions & Answers
What were the highlights of your quizzing years?

The experience of Nationals in 1977 was my highlight as a quizzer. I learned in 1977 what it took to be a top quizzer. As a coach and director, I attended every nationals from 1984 to 1999 and they were all highlights.

How did quizzing affect you as a teen?

I was only able to quiz two years, and I was very disappointed when my church could not put together a team my last two years of high school.

What difference has quizzing made in your life to this day?

I believe the disappointment of not being able to fully quiz as a teenager has been a driving force in me to be involved as a adult in quizzing over the last 27 years. I want to give as many teenagers as possible a chance to quiz.

Are you presently involved in Bible quizzing in any way? If so, how?

I am currently the director of Summit Bible Quizzing, which is a part of Bible Quiz Fellowship. SBQ is located in Kansas City, and we have 120 youth in our quiz program. While this style of quizzing is different than FM quizzing, the goals and purpose of the ministry is the same, to help young people learn the Word.
