InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?
Kristin Keller: A hammock, a good book, and a Diet Coke. I might as well pretend I am on vacation if I am stranded!

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
KK: My favorite joke is told every time (and I mean every single time) I go to a Chinese restaurant with my dad. We get through the meal, and I know it is coming as he reaches for the fortune cookie on the table. He breaks it open. … Read More »

31st May

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 »

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
RD: Two deeply-in-love penguins stood and held flippers on a small iceberg as they floated atop the frigid waters of the Antarctic. Suddenly, a lightning bolt struck from a clear blue sky and split the iceberg in half. The two pieces slowly drifted apart from one another, creating a divide between the lovestruck penguins. Their eyes locked in intense sorrow as the blocks of ice were … Read More »

Our next interview for NAYC comes from James Maroney of Campbellsburg, Kentucky. So, students, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to one of your Friday general session speakers, James Maroney.

InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?
James Maroney: Bible – for obvious reasons; something to hunt with – because I enjoy eating; sunblock – because I am a ginger.

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
JM: Don’t really have a favorite. When you have this personality, pretty much everything is a joke. Ask anyone who knows me!

IO: What is the funniest moment you have had while preaching?
JM: I’ve had too many slips of the tongue to mention any one in particular. Florida HYC 2007. That is all. Thank you.

IO: Why do you feel North … Read More »
