Please forgive me if I have placed this in the wrong thread or even if this question is not permitted! I signed up on the forum to try and seek information on two patches I have found at a thrift store. Does anyone know if they belong to the Pathfinder Ministry, and if so, which 'rank' or 'position' they belong to? Thanks! Any information would be appreciated!

Those are "Missionary Volunteer" patches. The name was changed to Pathfinders some time ago, and I have staff members in my club with the old insignia.

They have been replaced with similar-looking patches and are there to identify the bearer as a Pathfinder (or MV back in the day). They do not convey any rank - just membership.

Wow! At a thrift store? I'd be interested in knowing how it got there! But as Jomegat stated, these are some of the original patch designs before "Missionary Volunteers" was changed to "Adventist Youth", or AY. It is the equivalent of the shield and world patch used today.
