Club Ministry: Why join a Pathfinder Club?


When you hear Pathfinders and Adventurers there are a lot of stereotypes. If you grew up SDA, you could tell me a lot of club ministry from participating or knowing someone who has. But do you know what it takes to be a director, staff or TLT?  Why follow when you could lead?


Lanette Bieber
Prayer Ministry: Prayer Changes Everything


Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire? Come and join us for an activity driven prayer power hour!!


Leonardo Melendez
Sabbath School Ministry: Why be a Sabbath School Leader?

Christian Apologetics: How to defend what you believe


For years God's people have fought their most crucial battles on the battleground of the human mind. Here is where arguments are weighed, conclusions are reached, and decisions are made. It is here where reason and the will are engaged. Jesus knew the tremendous potential for ideas to reach and change us. Be prepared to give an answer for your faith.


Shawn Kohltfarber
Mission Ministry: Why join a Mission Trip?
