Sept. 19, teens from across the state of Minnesota gathered at the Northern Point Community Church of the Nazarene in Kelliher for the first quiz meet of the quizzing season.
Twenty-two teens plus coaches and visitors enjoyed a delicious lasagna lunch followed by several rounds of quizzing on the first five chapters of 1 Corinthians. There was even a tie-breaker quiz-off between two brothers for the individual high score of the day.
Northern Point had seven teens participate in the quiz with Wyatt Jensen receiving the fifth place trophy. The team traveling trophy for the most team points for the day went to the Bethel team.
Oct. 17, the Northern Point team traveled to Fergus Falls for the next meet. Also attending were teams from the North and South Dakota district, which is now combined with the Minnesota district.
The Teen Bible Quizzing season culminates at Mini-MAX in March, with the top quizzers from there going on to MAX at Mid-America Nazarene University, KS in April.
By the end of the season, the teens will have studied and memorized all of 1 and 2 Corinthians.
