Pathfinderingas a Ministry
  • Not entertainment

  • Not just an outdoor activity based club
  • THEN WHAT IS PATHFINDERING?

8
Pathfinderingas a Ministry
  • Spiritual at its core
  • It is intended to lead members into a growing,
    redemptive relationship with God
  • Experience-based
  • It is organized and led to build members into
    responsible, mature individuals who contribute to
    their families, their church and their world
  • Others Focused
  • It is programmed to help members realize that
    there is something that each one can do to help
    their neighbor through active, selfless service

9
Mission ofPathfindering
  • To provide a
  • Church-centered
  • Recreational-spiritual program
  • For both boys and girls
  • Ages 10-15
  • That offers action, adventure, challenge and
    group activities that produce team spirit and
    loyalty to God and the church

10
Philosophy ofPathfindering
  • Train a child in the way he should go, and when
    he is oldhe will not turn from it.
  • Proverbs 226 NIV

11
Philosophy ofPathfindering
  • Proverbs 226
  • Training them while they are young is important
    because 70 of Christians make their decision for
    Christ before the age of 14 (christianitytoday.com
    )
  • Because of changes in society such as
  • divorce causing single parent homes,
  • 50 of our kids not attending Christian schools,
  • Fewer families in society have any contact with
    Christianity

12
Philosophy ofPathfindering
  • Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is
    noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
    whatever is lovely, whatever is admirableif
    anything is excellent or praiseworthythink about
    such things.
  • Philippians 48 NIV

13
Philosophy ofPathfindering
  • Phil. 48
  • Pathfindering is fundamentally principles- and
    experience-based training so that young people
    can more easily transfer the learning to other
    areas of life.
  • Everything (honors, classwork, example) must be
    affected by Biblical truth because we are
    painting a picture of God for our kids

14
Philosophy ofPathfindering
  • A Song by Ponder, Harp Jennings goes
  • Youre the only Jesus some will ever see
  • Youre the only words of lifesome will ever read
  • So let them see in you the One in whom is all
    theyll ever need

For youre the only Jesussome will ever see
15
Purpose of Pathfindering

    and appreciate them

    God-given potential

    of their love for God
  • Making a personal salvation a Priority
  • Build into their life a healthy appreciation of
    Gods creation

57
Authoritative (Autocratic) Leader
  • Retains as much power and decision-making
    authority as possible.
  • Does not consult staff, nor are staff allowed to
    give any input.

  • Motivation is produced by creating a structured
    set of rewards and punishments.

    Pathfinders and staff

    organization

60
Evaluative
  • Similar to Authoritative, except that the leader
    asks for input and MIGHT include that input in
    the decisions, but will usually not acknowledge
    the involvement of others in the process

61
Bureaucratic (Political) Leader
  • Everything done by the book, according to
    procedure or policy.

    refers to the next level above him or her.

    staff ( Pathfinders) as much freedom as
    possible.

Planning and Programming
  • Section 5
  • Pathfinder Basic Staff training

84
Personalised Planning for the Local Church
  • Let all things be done decently and in order (1
    Corinthians 1440)

85
Pattern for Planning
  • The forward-looking church pathfinder leader
    knows that planning is essential and necessary
    for the establishment and development of an
    effective ministry of upreach, outreach,
    programming and recreation. But too often, either
    through procrastination or lack of understanding
    the basic steps of good planning are not pit into
    practice.
  • The following steps should be considered in
    establishing a balanced activity in the areas
    that most affect the pathfinders in church
    relationship

86
Things to Think About
  • Who
  • To whom are you trying to minister ...
  • Know their age, gender, likes, dislikes, family
    relationship and need.
  • These factors can be discovered only through a
    church-wide interest survey or by questioning the
    pathfinders

87
Things to Think About
  • Why
  • The church philosophy of planning that includes
    goals for its programme ministry should come
    together in an actual planning process.
  • A programme should never be planned just to have
    something listed on the calendar.
  • Each activity should have a specific purpose and
    goal

88
Things to Think About
  • What
  • Once you determine why you are planning, you can
    determine what activities will most effectively
    fulfil that purpose

89
Things to Think About
  • When
  • Determine the most appropriate time for each
    ministry in the weekly, monthly and yearly
    calendar of the church so that the majority of
    the people to who, you seek to minister can
    participate

90
Things to Think About
  • How
  • Involve your pathfinder leadership, church
    officers and a variety of church members in
    studding, planning and implementing programme.

91
Planning your year
  • Divide into groups and brainstorm your year of
    Pathfinder Club for the next year.
  • Remember to be clear about your objectives in the
    ministry
  • Plan your year from January to December.
  • You have 5 minutes

92
Planning your year reflection
  • What were some of the challenges, difficultes,
    and easy points in planning your year
  • DISCUSS

93
Points to remember when planning your year
  • School holidays you may wish to target these
    dates for activites
  • University dates- work around the dates when
    people will be away
  • Back holidays avoid or target?
  • Special dates- Easter, Xmas etc
  • Other local church dates- ingathering, campaigns
    week of prayer incl. youth W of P
  • SEC/BUC/TED/GC youth day of spiritual commitment,
    camps, Camporees etc
  • Your own holidays

94
Year Planning
  • Break down the year as you go.
  • So not try to plan everything to its finest
    details at the beginning.
  • YEAR- MONTH-WEEK-DAY

95
Year Planning
  • Detail individual Programme
  • Time
  • Speaker
  • Music
  • Equipment needed
  • Location (church, hall, home)
  • Publicity
  • Target age group

96
Pathfinder specific programming
  • Club meeting (day, time, uniform)
  • Investitures
  • Pathfinder Rally Day
  • Club/Area camps
  • Assessment day
  • SEC/BUC/TED events camporee, Master guide camps

97
  • the youth need more that just a casual notice,
    more than an organisational word of
    encouragement. They need painstaking, prayerful,
    careful labour. He only whose heart is filled
    with love and sympathy will be able to reach
    those youth who are apparently careless and
    indifferent. Not all can be helped in the same
    way. God deals with each according to his
    temperament and character, and we must co-operate
    with Him, often those whom we pass by with
    indifference, because we judge them from outward
    appearance, have in them the best material for
    workers, and will repay all the efforts bestowed
    on them. There must be more study given to the
    problem to how to deal with the youth more
    earnest prayer for the wisdom that is needed in
    dealing in minds

A final thought!
  • Three students have a meal. The bill arrives for
    30 and
  • they pay the waiter 10 each.
  • On putting it through the till, the waiter
    realises it
  • should have been for 25. Instead of trying to
    split 5
  • between the students, he decides to refund them
    1 each
  • and pockets the other 2.
  • In summary,
  • The students have therefore paid 3 x 9 27.
  • The waiter has 2 in his pocket.
  • Whats happened to the remaining 1 of the 30?
