On June 16, a group of 26 Pathfinder leaders and a school chaplain gathered to participate in the Master Guide Training and Continuing Education. Seven participants are new to Pathfindering and working on their Master Guide requirements. Four Pathfinder specialists, who are with the Southern Union and also members of the NAD Pathfinder Committee, presented the various topics, i.e. Leadership Skills, Communication Skills, Creativity & Resource Development, and Children & Youth Evangelism. Also, the participants learned of new NAD Pathfinder policies that will be in effect soon and insights into the programming planned for the Southern Union Camporee next October. ...Hopefully, we can have other types of training sessions in various parts of the conference in the future.
