Pathfinder Bible Experience
The Pathfinder Bible Experience is a team challenge that focuses on immersion in the Word of God. Four levels of play each Pathfinder year culminate in an official NAD Pathfinder event held on the third Sabbath of April at a large venue somewhere in the NAD.
A full day of activities is planned, including Sabbath morning services, and the PBE event in the afternoon from 1-5 pm.
The PBE Manual is available from AdventSource or as a PDF download here.

Please visit the website for all kinds of information regarding the specifics of PBE. The PBE manual and many other resources are available.
Be sure your testing levels (area, conference, union) are offering PBE testing in your chosen one of these three languages.
REMINDER: Per voted policy, answers to questions must match the language studied in, and cannot "cross over" mixing languages in an answer. (See manual "Language Variation" for more detail).
UPDATE - Bulletin 3 - 4/6/2016
We are incredibly excited and amazed with how God led hundreds of young people deep into the Bible - the Book of Exodus, during the 2015-2016 PBE season. April 16 2016, 100 teams met in Prescott Arizona for the fifth annual NAD Division Testing event.
All Teams who tested at the Division event are included in the following list by union and conference, with their placement. Placement is based on the following metric: First Place=90% correct of top scoring team's score; Second Place=80% correct from top scoring team's score; Third Place=70% correct from top scoring team's score.
