Quote of the Month
 For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will. 
Ephesians 1:4-5
Message from the Director
 Greetings Fellow Pathfinder!

In 1989/90 I had the honor to lead a group of Rocky Mountain Conference Pathfinder leaders to the former Soviet Union to establish Pathfinder clubs. Today, Pathfinder ministry in both Russia and Ukraine is growing. On July 20-24, Russian pathfinders will attend a camporee at the Adventist seminary in Tula Oblast, Russia. Many Russian pathfinders are seeking ways to attend the 2019 CICamporee. I am also honored to have accepted an invitation to support the Southern Asia Pacific Division camporee in Indonesia July 12-16. There are many Pathfinders making plans to come together with 50,000 pathfinders at the 2019 CICamporee. Please pray for their planning to join us in 2019. More info. 

We Are Stronger Together!

Remembering Brian Robak
Over 50,000 pathfinders know and love Brian for the part he played at the 2014 Forever Faithful International Camporee. Brian presented the lovable but complex Nebuchadnezzar.

Brian had a love for Christ that was extra special. He used his acting gifts to present Nebuchadnezzar at the 2014 International Camporee. For weeks leading up to the Oshkosh main stage program Brian and I would pray often for God to bless him and the Daniel Bible story. Brian always gave his best. He never gave God less than 101%. Brian was "Forever Faithful". Learn more...

Bible & Buck

Help spread the message of Jesus to the world. Don't forget to bring a Bible in English or Spanish along with a US dollar bill to donate! In 2014, through Bible & Buck we collected 32,000 Bibles and $18,000. The money collected helps to distribute the Bibles to countries where believers have little or no access to a Bible. 

Watch below how the Bibles collected from Courage To Stand 2009 were handed out to hundreds of people in Belize.

Over the years Gary has served as a teacher, and Youth Director, and president. Gary also served in the last five International Camporee Advisory Committees. He is the Mid-America Union president, but still enjoys helping youth develop a closer relationship with Christ.
