Favorite Scripture

Philippians chapter 3 is my favorite because it is a constant reminder of where my hope and worth rests and a comfort because that hope doesn't rest in anything I do, but in what Christ has done. After 19 years of being a follower of Christ, I still struggle with this at times. It is also a beautiful reminder to me to value, strive for, and live for knowing Christ, becoming like Him in his death, as I eagerly await heaven. I believe the book of Philippians was my favorite book I studied. I am pretty sure I could still quote most of it after 11 years.

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

The friends I made and fun I had more than the trophies I won. I also remember a very distinct moment at Spring Arbor when God really comforted me after a loss. Oh, and a cross over quiz we won at Nationals my 7th grade year.

How did quizzing affect you as a teen?

I believe I had greater self-confidence because of my success in quizzing. I also really enjoyed the healthy outlet for my competitive nature. I am convinced I learned to study better as a result of quizzing. But more than anything, I believe Bible Quizzing enhanced my relationship with Christ. Not only was I learning a lot of God's word, but I would turn to God during attacks of pre-quiz nerves and post-loss sorrows, and it cemented my relationship with Christ and taught me more of what it means to trust.

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

I can't really define the impact it has had. I believe it was the single most formative "thing" in my spiritual life during my teen years. How would my life be different now without that formation?
I have no idea. However, I can say that the knowledge of God's word that I gained from quizzing has had a tremendous impact on my spiritual life. God's word in a heart bears fruit, and it has born fruit in my life. More than anything else in my life, quizzing gave me a firm foundation and understanding of the Word of God and what it means for it to be living and active in the life of a believer. (And that's a pretty strong statement coming from someone who spent three years in Seminary)

How have your remained involved in quizzing?

I have quizmastered often and coached teams from Nicholasville, Kentucky and Indianapolis, Indiana (and a team from Bedford, Indiana). I have also shared in some quizzing leadership in Wabash Conference.

How are you serving the Lord?

I am currently an associate pastor at the West Morris Street FM church in Indianapolis, IN.
