Learn about Pathfinders and how to get involved
What Is Pathfinders?
Pathfinders is a world-wide organization of youth focusing on community service and building a relationship with God. The organization, sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, welcomes and encourages young people of any religious affiliation to join who promise to abide by the Pathfinder Pledge and Law. The program is designed for children ages 10-15 and has almost 2 million members across the globe.
Pathfinders encourages a wide range of activities for the purpose of teaching children valuable life skills. From community projects, camping and survival skills, nature and environmental conservation, to vocational skills, healthy living and spiritual development, children have the opportunity to explore their world through hands-on learning.
Joining A Pathfinder Club
Pathfinder clubs are formed and organized through local area churches. Being a member of the local church is not a requirement to join the club. The volunteer leadership, skilled in a variety of abilities and interests, are strong believers in Jesus Christ. They see Pathfinders as an opportunity for growth and learning, and are dedicated and committed to guiding children to become the hands and feet of Jesus.
The Advent Message to all the world in my generation.
The love of Christ compels us.
By the grace of God…
I will be pure, kind and true.
I will keep the Pathfinder Law.
I will be a servant of God,
and a friend to man.
The Pathfinder Law is for me to:
Keep the morning watch.
Do my honest part.
Care for my body.
Keep a level eye.
Be courteous and obedient.
Walk softly in the sanctuary.
Keep a song in my heart.
Go on God’s errands.
