"It was a great event, everyone
took a positive message, and learned
a lot about Jesus," said Youth
Missionary President James Huntley.
He said he wanted to become
president of the Youth Missionary
Union "because it's a positive organ
ization that deals with kids my age
and younger, and I've seen the offi
cers and they seem to be great role
models for youth trying to make a
positive change in the world."
Joycelyn Johnson, who was the
moderator for the Bible Bowl said,
"We looked at ways to try and
encourage the young people to do
team building, assist with conflict
resolution, and more importantly to
help with the opportunity to do reli
gious Christian development."
The seniors competed in their
own Bible Bowl competition. Mars
Hill Baptist Church was the winner.
"We encouraged the seniors to work
along with the young people and to
get them to think outside of the box."
