Pathfinder Club Basic Staff Certification

The Pathfinder Club Basic Staff Curriculum is designed to develop an awareness in leaders of the fundamentals of the Pathfinder Club and to help the Pathfinder Club staff become familiar with the procedures, policies, and resources necessary to start and maintain an Pathfinder Club Ministry.

It is not intended that participants will learn how to teach Pathfinders, but rather those basic elements of information necessary for any Pathfinder staff member or leader to fulfill his or her duties in the club.

Participants will attend a training seminar conducted by the conference Pathfinder Club Ministry personnel. This will normally be conducted over one weekend in May, at the discretion of conference personnel, be broken up into smaller segments, if necessary, to suit the needs of the conference. This training includes both seminar lectures and discussion.

It is recommended that each participant own a Pathfinder Club Handbook. Additional resources are suggested for each workshop.

Instructor: Tracy Wood
The purpose of this course is to provide online training for all new Pathfinder staff and those thinking of working with Pathfinders. This certification is intended to provide basic information about the purpose, structure and ministry of Pathfinders to individuals who are just starting out in Pathfinder ministry and have little or no prior experience with the program. It is highly recommended that this certification is earned before they begin their participation in Pathfinder ministry, although not required.
