looking for a few good people

Posted 06 Jul, 2010 11:00 PM by Ron

As we continue to focus on creating serious followers of Jesus:  I am looking for coaches, quizzers, officials, parents and anyone else who may be interested in writing short devotionals for our webpage.  We would like to post a new one once a week, and it can be from what you're learning in John to anything else you come across while on your journey with Jesus.  If you can be one of those people, email me, we'd love to get you involved.

We're looking for a few other people too...aside from devotion writers, we are also in need of forum moderators (2), and recreation coordinators -to plan hang out events like 4-square following the september, november, january and march quizzes,  and people willing to share testimonies and devotions during quiz meets.

We're back from Q2010 with a ton of memories and new goals and dreams for the new quiz year.  Great job to everyone who attended.  My prayer is that you had fun, made new friends, and learned a few things about quizzing.  I'll see all of you in just a few short weeks at quizmania! more details coming VERY VERY SOON!

Congrats to all the quizzers who represented us at Regional Celebrate Life this weekend.  For those of you who missed the event...

This was the first year we were allowed to take a "B" team to the event.  That means we got to take 10 (we actually took 12 because of a few conflicts) students instead of 5 or 6.  That was really exciting for us, as it keeps more of you quizzing and demonstrating your talent and mastery of God's word for longer!  Anyway,  Our B team took 2nd place in their division (9 teams), and did AWESOME!  They actually were UNDEFEATED in the prelim. rounds--and did a great job as a team.  The members of the B team were: Angie, Sam, Andy P., Paul, Holly, and Jaylene--with Scott coaching them.


Our A team did really well working together in their prelims as well and actually entered the tournament with a record of 7-3--the best record for our district in quite a few years!  We quizzed really well, and ended up 6th overall (out of the 11 districts).  I could say a million great things about the sportsmanship and teamwork I personally saw with the A team demonstrate--encouraging and pushing each other do work harder.  The A team was made up of Emma, Kayleigh, Joe, Alison, Daley and Row. 


Joe, Emma and Kayleigh also qualified to participate in the top 16 quiz-off and be on a regional team.  They didn't make it, but each of them received a $500 scholarship for their placement. Overall, i'm super blessed to be able to be a part of a ministry that is excited about Gods word, and im super glad that all the quizzers not only compete, but really understand that this whole thing is about Jesus and not just winning or losing. 


I have also updated the menu at the top of the page--Q2010 is gone, with an NYC 2011 informational page replacing it.  NYC is an event that takes place once every 4 years in the nazarene church--JUST FOR YOUTH.  Its for all high school students (most of you will only have one chance to attend) and i can tell you that as a student and as an adult it has impacted my life.  I want to really encourage any student who can to attend this amazing event.  The cost is $990, which is why we're getting the info out there now--you don't want to miss this event.
