This is the culmination of our daughter Kate’s effort to reach the Gold level for Lads to Leaders (L2L) Centurion of Scripture for 2016. She is currently 11-years-old and in the L2L program at Bellevue Church of Christ (BCOC). The decision to be a part of this program was completely her own.
L2L is the oldest and largest leadership training program used by the churches of Christ, and holds an annual convention each year at locations across the country. Centurion of Scripture is a year-round event within L2L and requires the memorization of 100 total verses of scripture. There are three levels within this program with differing requirements:
- Bronze level requires reciting 100 verses in 10 groups of 10.
- Silver level requires reciting 100 verses in two groups of 50.
- Gold level requires reciting all 100 at one time.
After two years of completing the Bronze level (2014 & 2015), this year (2016) she started with the goal of doing Silver level for Job. She completed this on September 18, and then made the decision to go for Gold. She completed Gold on September 26, which is the date of this video.
The scriptures quoted are listed below and are from the New King James (NKJV) version of the Bible.
Job 8:1-10; 9:1-10; 14:1-10; 15:1-10; 20:1-10; 21:1-10; 22:1-10; 26:1-10; 33:1-10; 36:1-10
We are obviously extremely proud of Kate for all of her work in studying scripture and for this accomplishment. We are also thankful to her sister Sara and Mrs. Eva from BCOC for helping her study these verses.
