What is Pathfinder Bible Experience

The Pathfinder Bible Experience is a team-based challenge that tests the groups' knowledge of sections of Scripture. Each year a new block of scripture is assigned and Pathfinders commit themselves to immersing themselves in those passages of God's Word. Then in February, after months of study, they gather together with other teams in their area/district to test their knowledge against a set of questions drawn from the Scriptures they have been covering. If they answer a high enough percentage of the questions correctly, they advance to a Conference level event, then a Union level, and finally a Division level event, typically held in April.

Each team competes against a standard, and all who perform to the designated percentage advance. Meeting together adds a sense of excitement and an additional level of adrenaline that spurs participants on to higher levels of recall. Yet any and all can advance, based solely on their efforts.


The purpose of The Pathfinder Bible Experience is to promote and encourage in depth Bible study and memorization by Pathfinders, so their understanding of Scripture will increase and their relationship to Christ will grow.
