It was my privilege to coach Bible Quiz Teams from the Bedford Free Methodist Church for 21 years.  During that time I had some of the greatest young people anyone could have wished for.  They were dedicated to the program, each other, learning scripture, and most important, growing in Christ.  Three of those young people were my own daughters and I thank God for a program that enabled my children and their teammates to memorize God’s Word, make lifelong friends, and have fun doing so.  Two of my Bedford quizzers actually met and chose as their life partners a fellow quizzer from another Free Methodist Church.

Working together, I was privileged to coach three Young Teen Rookie National Champions; five Young Teen Veteran National Champions; one Senior Teen Rookie National Champion; and six Senior Teen Veteran Alpha Omega Champions. 

My favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”  I gave my heart to Christ as a young boy and now I am getting old, but this scripture has taken me through some very difficult moments in life and I have found that Jesus is the answer every time. 

Quizzers always seem to love those overnighters and long trips to a quiz meet.  I wish I could have said the same, but I have wonderful memories of listening to the chatter and songs on a long bus trip. 

My present involvement in the quiz program is as a stand-in helper and advisor even when the advice is unsolicited.  My number one role today is spectator and cheerleader for my grandchildren who are quizzing. 

Bible Quizzing, along with mission trips are the best programs the denomination offers our youth.
