Northwest Pathfinders Experience the Bible

April 26, 2017 | Anthony White

On April 22, 80 Pathfinder teams met in Chicago Ill., for the sixth annual North American Division (NAD) Pathfinder Bible Experience final testing event. Four Pathfinder club teams in the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) placed first place at the final level of Pathfinder Bible Experience testing, with four more teams placing second.

Pathfinder Bible Experience is the official NAD Pathfinder Bible study program in which teams of six club members study a book of the Bible, memorizing large portions of God's word. The Pathfinders are tested over the assigned study books as well as the SDA Bible Commentary introduction to each study book. The program incorporates Total Member Involvement with study coaches and involvement from church elders and members.

Placement is based on the percentage of correct answers a team gives with first place scoring 90 percent, second place scoring 80 percent and third place scoring 70 percent.

There are four levels of competition testing to the program which include local area, conference, union and division.
