Pathfinders Study the Word of God

Pathfinder Bible Achievement fondly referred to as the Bible Bowl is an annual event open to all Pathfinder Clubs.

The focus of this program is for as many Pathfinders as possible to participate as well as members in the extended church to study the Word of God. There are four levels in this program: district, conference, union and North American Division. Those who answer 90 to 100 percent of the questions correctly proceed to the next level. The questions this year were taken from Book of Deuteronomy, chapter 30, to the last chapter in the book of Joshua. This conference-level event was held at the South Hill Church in Spokane in January.

It is exciting to see Bible Achievement spectators searching for the answers as the Pathfinders jot down the answer quickly before the buzzer sounds.

"Every participant is a winner," says Wayne Hicks, Upper Columbia Conference Pathfinder director. Why? Because they study their Bible and Psalm 19 tells us His Word/testimony makes wise the simple.

Darrell Janke, UCC Bible Achievement coordinator, shares Hicks' philosophy and says he believes that every Pathfinder should study the Word of God.
