Memorizing God’s Word Never Returns Void

Memorizing God’s Word Never Returns Void

By: Kimberly Jackson

Twenty eight children, youth, and high school students from across Ohio converged at Reynoldsburg Baptist Church to compete in the State Bible Drills on April 27.

Thomas Bonifield of First Baptist Kettering won the High School Drill and will represent Ohio at the National Bible Drill this June in Concord, North Carolina. Noelle Cozmyk of Pleasant Valley Church won the Youth Drill and will join Thomas in Concord, NC. In the Children’s Drill, Emily Bonifield of First Baptist Kettering and Joelle Reed and Justin Bauer, both of Reynoldsburg Baptist Church, were all declared State Winner Perfect.

Along with the opportunity to represent Ohio at the National Drill, cash prizes are awarded to the top finishers each year in the Youth and High School State Drills.
