Pathfinders - Worthington Wildcats







Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, are welcome and encouraged to join the organization.

The Pathfinder club was designed by the Seventh-day Adventist Church for boys and girls, grades 5 to 10 (ages 10 to 15). The program offers recreation, life skills training, and activities that promote team spirit and loyalty to God and His church. These children are given opportunities to develop leadership skills, problem-solving skills, and to build relationships that will last for eternity.

The primary purpose of the Pathfinder ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to instill in its membership a committed relationship with Jesus Christ through:


• Fostering Christian relationships in an atmosphere of love and fellowship.
