Pathfinder Winter Retreat 2020
March 6-8, 2020
Our Theme for Winter Retreat this 2020 is “Born Identity.” God says in 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
In a world filled with peer pressure and temptation, many pathfinders are struggling with their identity and who they are supposed to be. The idea is that Jesus knows who we are supposed to be, our identity is found in Christ.
When we give our lives to Jesus Christ and we are born again, we have a new Christ identity.
Our special guest speaker for this year’s Pathfinder Winter Retreat is Pastor Rudy Alvir. Pastor Rudy currently pastors the Red Deer SDA Church and also assists the Youth Department with the Uniform Ministry responsibilities.
Pastor Rudy loves youth ministry and has been working in youth ministry for over a decade.
This year’s Winter Retreat will take place at Foothills Camp. You don’t want to miss the 2020 Pathfinder Winter Retreat.
We will be facilitating PBE (Pathfinder Bible experience) on Sabbath afternoon.
The study books for 2020 are the following: Ezra, Nehemiah, Hosea, Amos, Jonah, and Micah. From Ezra and Nehemiah, the Pathfinders will not be responsible for the following:
• Ezra 2
• Ezra 8:1-14
• Ezra 10:18-44
• Nehemiah 7:7-63
• Nehemiah 10:1-27

Growing Young Adventists
“Growing Young: Six Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church”
“Churches are both shrinking and aging as more young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain young people. It profiles innovative churches engaging 15- to 29-year-olds that are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with ideas, Growing Young shows ministry leaders how to position their churches to reach younger generations in a way that breathes life into the whole church.”
That’s why the North American Division Youth Ministries Department has created an amazing initiative called “Growing Young Adventist.”
“Growing Young Adventists is a learning journey for local churches and leaders helping to build faith communities that will not only survive, but thrive in the years ahead. It is an inter-generational movement nurturing relationship building and cultural transformation that embraces young people and benefits all generations in the Adventist church.” #GYA #GrowingYoungAdventists
