Pathfinders is a worldwide organization for young people grades 5 through 12. Sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Pathfinders provides opportunities for youth to become involved in their community, learn outdoor survival skills, and develop a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ.

Southern Union Conference Pathfinder Ministries provides support to conference Pathfinder programs and organizes an annual camporee for Pathfinders across the Southern Union Conference.

There are currently over 2 million Pathfinders around the world. While Pathfinder clubs are sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, any young person who promises to abide by the Pathfinder Pledge and Law is welcome to join, regardless of their religious affiliation.

After a year of virtual PBE testing, we are excited to announce that we are planning an in-person PBE Union Level Final at this time. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and should the need arise we will make changes as needed to keep our Pathfinders, the staff, and supporters safe. Regardless of any location changes our Southern Union PBE Final will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2022.
