Team History
Over the years Central Assembly has sent more teams to National Finals than any other church in the nation. (This year’s team makes 24.) Central has had seven top four national finishes.

Most exciting match this season
We faced James River in the championship playoff round at the Missouri Classic. The match came down to question 20, and Hannah snagged the 10-point question for the win.

Favorite quiz question (weirdest, funniest, etc)
Our favorite question was one that came up in practice: “The unique word abomination is found in one verse. Quote, and give the complete reference for, this verse.” Where it was interrupted, it sounded like, “The unique word Obama…” We all heard the same thing and erupted with laughter.

Favorite verse from the material
Daniel: Matthew 28:19
Hannah: Matthew 15:14
Brock: Matthew 22:27

Tournaments attended this year
Gold Cup
Missouri Classic

Favorite non-quiz related moment(s) this year
There wasn’t much snow in Missouri last winter, so the team took advantage of the opportunity to sled in Pittsburgh after the Friendship Classic. On the return trip to Springfield, Brock and Daniel watched all three Lord of the Rings movies.

What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
We were invited to quote at a Chinese Assemblies of God congregation near Central. Each of the quizzers quoted a chapter from Matthew. We spent nearly an hour with the church’s kids and youth, answering questions about quiz and Bible memorization. We also attended the worship service (which was in Mandarin Chinese with English translations) and stayed for a traditional Chinese fellowship dinner.
