Twenty-three of the 37 participating Columbia Union Conference Pathfinder teams placed first in the recent union-level Pathfinder Bible Experience event at Takoma Academy in Takoma Park, Md.
Here are the teams that will continue on to the division-level event in April:
Allegheny East Conference
Community Falcons - Team 1
Community Falcons - Team 2
Living Springs Lions

This winter Pathfinders from participating clubs around the Columbia Union Conference studied and memorized the Book of Luke for the Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE). Teams participated in local, then conference events to test their knowledge.
After the Ohio Conference and Mountain View Conference PBE March 2, the next event will be the union level event on March 16.
Below is a list of the teams that have advanced to the union event:

During the Adventist Ministries Convention in Albuquerque, N.M., North American Division (NAD) leaders recognized several longtime Columbia Union Conference leaders with Lifetime Achievement awards.
“Our hope is that when we recognize and show gratitude to individuals who are [providing] exemplary contributions, other leaders are inspired to value excellence in their pursuits for God and His Church,” says Debra Brill, NAD’s vice president for Ministries and event organizer.
