The Pathfinder Club is part of a world-wide co-ed scouting type organization sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Juniors and teens in grades 5-12 of any religion, or none at all, are welcomed and encouraged to join this ministry. See what our local club has been up to lately on our Instagram account. Our age-matched and Bible-based holistic curriculum guides youth into becoming responsible Christian leaders, emphasizing a personal relationship with Christ. See the expected activities and projects at https://wiki.pathfindersonline.org/w/Investiture_Achievement. Pathfinders are also introduced to a variety of subjects (Art, Nature, Recreation, and much, much more!) through Honor classes. There are new Honors added regularly at https://wiki.pathfindersonline.org/w/AY_Honors.
When: Sabbath (Saturday) afternoons and some Sundays for meetings. Additional special events like field trips and campouts will be also be scheduled. See the calendar below for what is coming up. Our Pathfinder year will run from August/September through May. Upcoming events are reflected on our Google calendar below.
Pathfinder Bible Experience: A team-based Bible memorization challenge that focuses on a different area of the Bible each year. In 2023-2024, the Pathfinders will study the Old Testament books of Joshua and Judges. Between February-April, the teams will have the opportunity to test their knowledge at four ascending levels next to teams from other clubs across Texas and the US. Read more at https://nadpbe.org/ and get in touch to join the team!
International Camporee, Oshkosh, Wisconsin: In August 2024 our club will travel to the International Pathfinder Camporee in Gillette, Wyoming. This life-changing experience brings together 55,000 youth from around the world to learn about Christ while camping and having lots of fun. We have purchased our tickets for International Camporee! Speak to the club staff by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss being part of our club.
Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program: The Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program is designed to train and mentor youth in service and leadership skills. TLT youth will experience acceptance, achievement, and responsibility in developing self-efficacy, self-respect, and identity through adult-teen mentoring in a “shared service experience” in developing a redemptive relationship with God. To learn more about the TLT program visit the Texas TLT website. Teens in the club will apply each year and submit three recommendation forms (download here).
Staff Volunteers - All adult volunteers over the age of 18 must submit this form fully filled out (English, Spanish), complete online training through the Sterling Volunteers website https://www.nadadventist.org/asv, and submit to background checks on a regular cycle before they can serve in our club ministry.
