Nine teams advance to Pathfinder Bible Experience Division level
Fifteen Pathfinder teams gathered at the Eau Claire Church in Michigan on Sabbath, March 27 for the first (and prayerfully last) virtual Union-level PBE.
Teams participated either physically in their churches or with some or all members answering questions virtually. Nine teams now move on to the Division level.
Each year, teams of six club members study a book of the Bible (alternating Old Testament and New Testament), memorizing large portions of God's word.
This year, the teams have been studying the books of Hebrews, James, 1st & 2nd Peter. The testing takes them through ninety questions. The young people must answer the questions by writing the answer and those teams answering correctly within 90% of the top score are invited to the next level of testing.
There are four levels of competition - Area, Conference, Union, and Division. The Pathfinders are tested over the assigned study books, as well as the SDA Bible Commentary Introduction to each study book.
Here are the first and second place finalists who placed in the top 80-90 percent of the highest score. First place teams advance to the Division testing to be held virtually April 16-17.
