Thirteen Teams Participate in Oregon Conference Level Pathfinder Bible Experience

Thirteen Teams Participate in Oregon Conference Level Pathfinder Bible Experience

Thirteen teams of six gathered expectantly, awaiting the start of the 2019 Pathfinder Bible Experience. They’d been ready to “compete” a week earlier, but the event was postponed due to the Willamette valley’s “snowpocalypse” (snowFLOPalypse?). On Sabbath February 23, teams finally gathered in Eugene to be quizzed over their knowledge of the biblical book of Luke and the accompanying Adventist Bible Commentary. For 90 minutes, questions were asked and answers (by memory!!) were catalogued. Of the 13 teams participating, 5 were attending for the very first time. In the end, three teams (all from Pleasant Valley Church) qualified for the North Pacific Union level competition taking place this Sabbath, March 9 at Sunnyside Church in Portland. First place teams will qualify for the NAD Pathfinder Bible Experience in Chicago next month. While not every team qualifies for Chicago, every participant wins through their participation. How so? Because Pathfinders and staff have spent the last few months, poring over the book of Luke, committing large sections to memory. In our book, anyone who spends that much time in God’s word is a winner!

Sample question from PBE 2019: “According to Luke 7:5, According to the elders of the Jews sent by the centurion why was the centurion deserving?”
