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.
