Bio

Favorite Scripture

Lois

Hebrews 12:2-3 was my favorite because keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus has been so important in helping me keep focused in the challenges of ministry and life in general.

Harold

I John 3:16-18 always reminds and convicts me that love must be expressed by action.

Questions & Answers
What were the highlights of quizzing?

Lois

Highlights for me included taking teams to Nationals and just the week-to-week adventure of coaching a team and working with the youth. I enjoyed interpreting the scripture to many teens, some of which had no former training in the scriptures, and to see their hearts and minds change. Watching our own children quiz and staying up late to hear them quote chapters was one of my fondest memories.

Harold

The many trips with quizzers and time spent just getting to know them.

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

Lois

These years of ministry in quizzing have helped me to love God's Word and to desire to share the reality of Christ in my life with others. To see the lives of teenagers changed and to watch leaders emerge has been more rewarding than I can express.

Harold

As a Conference Director, I was privileged to meet people from all over the country who shared a passion for the Word of God. Hearing the testimonies of both quizzers and adults was an encouragement and reminder of the great work God can perform in ordinary people and how he can use them to advance His Kingdom and His Gospel. I count it a blessing to know former quizzers who are now pastors, missionaries, church leaders, etc. The people not only memorized the Word, but also heeded and obeyed its teaching.
