About Pathfinders


pathfindersonline.org- Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people ages 10-16 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.

Pathfindering provides opportunities for adult staff to mentor and discipline young people in the Christian faith. It is an effective means of evangelism that practically every church can enter engage in. 

Pathfinder Beginnings

Who started Pathfinders?  The short answer is that no one person did, but rather that a diverse group of youth-focused, God-loving, ministry-minded individuals in various location created “Pathfinder-like” clubs in various locations that eventually grew into the ministry we now know as Pathfinders.

The first Pathfinder Club of record was in Anaheim, California directed by John McKim and Willa Steen.  This club began in the late 1920’s and ran through the 1930’s.   In 1944 McKim died and the Steens had moved.  In 1930 Lester and Ione Martin with co-directors Theron & Ethel Johnston began a club in Santa Ana, California.

Today, Pathfinders span across the world in many languages and cultures.
