Since the opening kick-off tourney, more youth have joined Bible quiz, and another team has been added to the 2016 season. There are now 70 quizzers and 13 teams in Northwest Ohio Bible Quiz.
One of the new area Bible Quiz teams is made up of youth who attend Bible study at the Archbold Youth Center, the Outback. After Sunday’s quiz meet, Belle Clark, an Outback quizzer, shared how she came to be a member of the team.
“Being someone who accepted Jesus in March of 2015, I had actually prayed to God to give me more opportunities to dive into His word,” she said. “Turns out, the next day a Youth For Christ volunteer told me that the Outback needed more quizzers.”
Belle’s teammates are Bervia Clark, Isaiha Freeman, Alexis Skiver, Tatum, and Skyler Day. They are coached by Keely Geringer, Mike Perez, and Alissa Reynolds.
