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.

PBE Location Change Division Finals 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - We have had to change our location for the PBE Division Finals testing program from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  We have found an excellent venue in Chicago, Illinois.  There are several advantages to Chicago, mainly the airfares.  The location is Moraine Valley Community College, 9000 College Parkway, Palos Hills, Illinois, 60465.  To confirm, the date for the Division Program is April 21-22, 2017.
 
We will be sending out hotel information within the next week.  The closest airport to fly in to is Midway Airport (MDW).  
 
Food:  As we discussed at the NAD Meetings, the NAD will no longer be providing free meals for the teams but will have food onsite from the New Life SDA Church that will be available for purchase in advance.  We will make registration for meals a part of the registration process when teams register for attendance.
 
Please pass this information on to your Pathfinder Clubs so they may make their plans accordingly.

Esther Joins Daniel for the 2018 PBE Testing Season

The 2018 testing season for PBE will be over the books of Daniel and Esther.

 

Both books cover the post-exile time period and share many themes and locations in common.  It was felt that only having 12 chapters of material would not allow all members of each PBE team to be fully involved and invested in the learning process.

 

Also included will be the SDA Bible Commentary Introduction for both Daniel and Esther.

2016 PBE Final Results

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.
