Pathfinder Bible Experience
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly …” (Colossians 3:16)
The purpose of the Pathfinder Bible Experience is to promote and encourage in-depth Bible study and memorization of the Bible by Pathfinders, so their understanding of scripture will increase and their relationship to Christ will grow.
The Pathfinder Bible Experience was developed to help Pathfinders and young people meditate and reflect on what the Bible says and how it applies to their lives. It features ideas for application to help Pathfinders use what they study and apply it to their daily experience at home, school and church.
The Pathfinder Bible Experience is the Official North American Division Pathfinder Bible study program. Pathfinders from across North America are committing to memory verses, chapters and books of the Bible as part of The Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE). PBE is a wonderful starting point for Bible study and a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. But memorization is just the beginning.
