Pathfinder Club Ministry

Training and saving young people is one of the most important missions of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Scientists tell us that children's’ brain patterns are formed by the time they reach twelve years of age. This means that during their early, formative years it is crucial that they are taught good habits. Centuries ago the Scriptures recorded, “Bring up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). This is more than a cliché—it is now a proven fact. The Indiana Conference Pathfinder Director, Pastor Charlie Thompson, has a great team of Area Coordinators who volunteer their time to make all of the events a success.
