Hope Bone of Lewisburg and a member of First Baptist Church, Columbia, won the Tennessee Baptist Convention State Youth Bible Drill.
The state drills were held at the Missions Mobilization Center of the Tennessee Baptist Convention in Mount Juliet.
Donna Blaydes, Bible drill specialist, Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, who directs the drills, said each church is encouraged to hold a church drill for drillers, after which participants advance to a drill in their local Baptist association. Those scoring the required points advance to one of eight regional drills. The first place winner of each of the regional drills advances to the state drill.
Bible Drill is a discipleship program designed to teach students how to use their Bibles and to encourage them to hide Godís Word in their hearts, said Blaydes.
Hope is the daughter of Jamie and Tammy Bone.
