Location:  The specific location of the Division Pathfinder Bible Experience on April 17-18 is on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas.  Keene is about 50 miles southwest of downtown Dallas and about 25 miles south of Fort Worth on I-35W.

The best airport to fly into will probably be Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) airport.  For those flying on Southwest Airlines you will probably fly into Dallas Love Field.  

The address for Southwestern Adventist University is 100 W. Hillcrest Dr., Keene, Texas.  The Friday night and Sabbath morning programming will take place at the Leiske/Pultar Gymnasium at the university.  

When looking for hotel accommodations please look in Alvarado, Texas and Cleburne, Texas.  These towns are within 5-6 miles of the university and very convenient.  Among others, you will find Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, LaQuinta, Super 7 hotels.  Please ask for either the SDA or Texas Conference of SDA discount.  If offered, the discount may not be much but it helps.  We look forward to seeing you at the Division PBE testing!
