Team History
This is Pocono Community Church's first appearance at Nationals.

Interesting Historical Tidbit
The last time Aaron coached at Nationals was 8 years ago, over Hebrews and Peter. The star quizzer of the team he coached was Katie. The team finished 3rd that year and Katie finished 3rd high scorer.

Most exciting match this season
Unfortunately any exciting match we can recall we lost! We are hoping this may change with some beginners luck at Nationals.

*HOWEVER WE DID REALLY ENJOY QUIZZING OUR PASTORS IN A QUIZ OFF. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO.

Favorite question (weirdest, funniest, etc)
The team most enjoys hearing their coach's quiz questions since he has no trouble creating numerous ones. Our favorite is: Girls like flowers. Quote the verse in which flowers are mentioned.”

Favorite verse from the material
Amanda: Hebrews 13:6
Elijah: Hebrews 12:1
Joe: 1 Peter 4:1

Tournaments attended this year
Gobblefest
Friendship Classic
Three Rivers

Favorite non-quiz related moment(s) this year
It would have to be the day both the boys showed up late for practice. Unfortunately this gave Aaron and Amanda too much time to talk. They decided the guys would run a lap around the house for each minute they were late. Let's just say they did a lot of running.

What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
We can pinpoint several times throughout the season where we have had opportunities where quizzing led us to Christ centered discussions or where the scripture we have memorized helped us in discussions with coworkers, parents and family. It's as if the scripture we have learned serves as a stepping stone to being outwardly focused. We have also noticed how it can encourage those around us to dig deeper into God's word too.
