FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- On April 18, 128 teams met in Keene Texas, at Southwestern Adventist University, for the fourth-annual PBE Finals. 92 teams achieved a first place rating, while 33 teams achieved a second place rating, and 1 team achieved a third place rating. Each of the teams present represent the best their conferences have to offer, having to achieve a first place rating (90% correct from highest score) at three previous levels of play.
This chart shows teams alphabetically by Union and Conference along with each team's ranking. Following the chart is additional information about the growth and spiritual impact of PBE.
Many of your family members, church members and club staff are not able to be with us at Southwestern Adventist University for the Division PBE Testing. We do not want them to feel left out. For that reason we are providing live streaming of the Sabbath Afternoon Division Testing program. The streaming will begin just before 2:30pm CDT on April 18, 2015.

Enjoy your Pathfinders from home!
TIMING:In an effort to be fair yet streamline the response time following the second reading of the questions in the testing process we have made the following changes to the response time.
Previously, following the second reading of the testing question, the teams were given 10 seconds to determine the answer to the question. Next the scribe was given 10 seconds to write down the answer, for a total time of 20 seconds. The scribe would then give the answer sheet to the grader who would write down the score based on the answer shown on the screen or send the answer sheet to the judges. If the question required additional time to answer the question, the team would raise their hand or a flag was raised to indicate more time was necessary. The answer was given from the front when all hands or flags were lowered.
Beginning this year, 2014-2015, at all levels, the following timing procedure will be implemented:
In Addition to the PBE Manual, the NAD/AdventSource has made an Activity Manual available to assist Pathfinders and their leaders in the in-depth study of the PBE Bible passages.
