Creative Experience Contest

In honor of Black History Month, we are hosting a Creative Expressions Contest encouraging Pathfinders to be the “Light in the Darkness” by positively reflecting their favorite African-American Leader or Icon and how that person inspires them to live out their dreams while adhering to any of the principles of the PATHFINDER LAW. See flyer for more details. You will also receive an email from the office with the contest rules and entry form. Blessings and let us celebrate our black heritage together as a federation.

Pathfinder Black Heritage Creative Expressions Contest

We are now accepting entries from Active Pathfinders and Teen Leader Trainees (TLT’s) from Northeastern Conference for the Pathfinder Black Heritage Creative Expressions Contest. 

All entries must reflect the theme of Black History. The subject must be about a black person, group, event, experience, movement, or outcome that has or is having a significant impact on people of color in your community, in America, or the world and how that inspires you to live out your dreams while adhering to any  of the Pathfinder Law.

Pathfinders is a community service oriented youth organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, open to all children from ten to sixteen years and upwards. It was founded in 1907. Activities include community service, camping, crafts, classwork, marching, Bible study, Seventh-day Adventist Church history, and leadership training. Participants are children and teenagers aged 10-15, progressing through different ranks called Class Levels each year. Pathfinder clubs across the globe are sponsored by the local Seventh-day Adventist church.





The volunteer leadership, skilled in a myriad of unusual abilities and interests are, first and foremost, strong believers in Jesus Christ and are sure of the road they are taking towards eternal life. They consider the Pathfinder club an experimental laboratory where growth and learning are synonymous with fun.  




Activities encourage a range from community/civic service projects in their community and across the globe to nature and environmental conservation studies to camping and high adventure trips. Pathfindering is built on an age-specific curriculum of six levels along with approximately 350 specialized skill development topics covering arts and crafts, aquatics, nature, household arts, recreation, spiritual development, health, and vocational training. These often serve as a launching point for lifetime careers or hobbies.
