What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
WIthout a doubt, Daniel winning The American Bible Challenge! Our Assistant Coaches, and Daniel's brothers, Jesse and Joshua, joined him on the team, calling themselves "The Wagner Warriors". In January, the Game Show Network flew them out to Hollywood for a week to tape Season 2 of the show. Daniel, Jesse and Joshua being reunited again as a Bible Quiz team was a dream come true for us, as it brought back together a TBQ team that was one of the most dominant of all time, winning consecutive National Championships in 2008 and 2009 over GEPCP and Mark. The American Bible Challenge appearance also helped reintroduce a new generation of quizzers to Jesse and Joshua's excellence as quizzers!

By winning The American Bible Challenge, Daniel, Jesse and Joshua won a total of $140,000 which was donated to Wagner Ministries International. This money is being used by Wagner Ministries International to fund its Global Evangelistic Crusades and Conferences, including those in the most unreached nations of the world for Jesus--the nations of Africa, Asia and The Middle East. Daniel, Joshua, Jesse, along with Luke and Kevin, preach at these Gospel events, doing all they can, by God's grace, to fulfill the Great Commission Jesus gave all believers in Matthew 28:18-20.

Hanging out with The American Challenge's co-hosts, Jeff Foxworthy and Kirk Franklin was a very cool experience. It was fun teaching Jeff how to tell jokes and Kirk how to dance!
