Our next interview for NAYC comes from A.J. Dummitt of Radcliff, Kentucky. He will be coordinating Project 22:39 at North American Youth Congress. So, students, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to A.J. Dummitt.

InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?
A.J. Dummitt: 1) My family (if you consider them to be items). I would definitely not want to be anywhere without my family and especially my wife, Cathy, because HOME is wherever we are together. I absolutely love my family, and if they were with me, this would be a grand adventure.

2) My Bible. I would have said this would be even more important than having my family, but I have been in and around Bible quizzing for so long—and my children quiz as well—that wherever we … Read More »
