Wagner WarriorsOral Roberts University students Joshua and Jesse Wagner, along with their younger brother Daniel, will be contestants on the finale of “The American Bible Challenge” hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, on the Game Show Network. The finale will air on May 23, 2013 at 8 p.m. CT.

The ORU community will be watching the brothers at a watch party in the new Armand Hammer Alumni Student Center. The watch party is open to media and the public.

The brothers compose team “Wagner Warriors” and have made it through two rounds of competition. In the finale they will be competing for a grand prize of $100,000, which would bring their total winnings to $140,000. All prize money will benefit their family ministry Wagner Ministries International.

The American Bible Challenge is the most popular show in Game Show Network history. The show tests contestants’ biblical knowledge, using both historical and current references derived from the narrative text.

“Being on ‘The American Bible Challenge’ has been an amazing experience,” said eldest brother Joshua Wagner. “We have had a great time, learned a lot and met some great people along the way.”
