Pathfinders "those who go ahead and discover or show others a path or way." are a Worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, are welcome and encouraged to join the organization.

Thank you for visiting our page.
We are happy that you have an interest in our youth ministry. Please read on and our hope is that you find here the information you need.

We Are The Pisgah Scorpions of the Pisgah Seventh-day Adventist Church.
We are in the Allegheny East Conference, under the Columbia Union Conference 
of the North American Division of the World General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Churches.

Our Goal is to build up our youths in our church and community with a Spiritual foundation of knowing Jesus Christ and understanding God's Word in the Bible.
ANY youth between the ages of 10 - 15, (5th - 10th grades) of any denomination or none at all, are encouraged to join our organization.
We also have a Teen Leaders in Trainng (T.L.T.) program for youths aged 16-18, (11th & 12th grades).

Our Objectives include helping develop our youths to be responsible and mature individuals and leaders in the church ministries and our communities by mentoring them through fellowship, worship, outreach and service as well as teaching them discipline, etiquette and proper conduct.

We engage our youths with many character-building activities including, but not limited to: Team Building Exercises, Leadership Training, Retreats, Camping & Survival Skills, Community Service & Outreach, Honors Training (with awards given in the form of a patch upon successful completion) which include areas like Arts & Crafts, Health, Science, House & Home, Nature, Vocational, Outreach & Recreation.

Our Registration fee is $10.00


We have formal events where we wear a uniform much like the Boy/Girl Scouts. There are some additonal fees for these as well as nominal costs for certain events.


We have monthly dues of $7.50 per pathfinder and discounts for multiple children within the same family.


Our club calendar year follows the school year from August to June/July. Our monthly meeting schedule for the 2017-2018 year is every 1st Sunday of the month and the 2nd Sabbath/Saturday of the month. Here is a link to our current calendar: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzAzGe_5pFmHNXhXTjE5eW9Bc0k

We expect youth to be on time and ready to learn and experience the Spirit of Pathfindering. We have a code of conduct and a discipline action plan and thus we expect all youth to adhere to these basic rules to ensure everyone has a very rewarding experience with our club.

We hope that you would allow your child the opportunity to learn and grow with us.

Lastly, we are inviting anyone whom would like to volunteer any amount of time during our club year to assist with various duties. We need LOTS of volunteers! We accept ALL volunteers, even if you can only give an hour, but of course we need help year round. We will have sign-up sheets where you can designate when and where you are available to volunteer your time to help our Pathfinders this year. Our youth can greatly benefit from your many awesome talents. Volunteers can help with anything from teaching an honor, showcasing a career expertise to being a field trip chaperone. Please consider volunteering. Please note that all Volunteers and Staff working with children and youth in the Adventist Churches MUST complete an online video training and a background check through the Verified Volunteers program.To do so, please visit: https://www.ncsrisk.org/adventist.

We are excited to begin this new year. We learned a lot from last year and are ready to implement some new and great things this year to create an even better Pathfinder experience for our youth. Please spread the Good News! Thank You. God Bless You.

The Pathfinders attended the 2017 AEC Pathfinder Fair
June 22 - 25, 2017

I am pleased to announce we placed 5th overall out of 38 registered clubs! I am so very proud of all of our Pathfinders. Please join me in congratulating ALL of them. What's pretty awesome is that this was our first time for our current club members competing in this type of event and many of them had only limited practice. I'd like to send a Special Shout Out to the Pack, Pitch & Strike Team for a Perfect Score in that particular competition!!! Woo-Hoo!!! Thank You goes out to ALL of you who trained, supported, assisted, taught, cheered and rooted for us along the way! We are looking forward to next year's competition. We'll be taking a much needed break from club activities until the Fall. We are planning a big back-to-school Pathfinder event. Stay Tuned! Please enjoy some of the pictures below. Be sure to visit our FB page to see all of the pictures from the Fair.

The Scorpions Attend The Metro Area Camporee: Camp Snyder, VA, May, 2017

The theme was "Just Claim It, Back to Basics" Skills Camporee. We enjoyed God's nature, teamwork & camaraderie and the great outdoors of the Camp Snyder Boy Scouts camp grounds. We learned survival training skills like Survival Knots, Fire Building & Camp Cooking, Survival camping & Building a Lean-to style shelter from a Poncho as well as eating edible plants. We also took part in camp inspections and enjoyed fun activities like the watermelon & fitness relays. Enjoy some of the the pictures below from very rewarding weekend.
