Right now, much planning is going into our first virtual camporee here in Potomac Conference. We are looking forward to giving you more information as it becomes available. The Theme and Title for the Camporee has been chosen. “It Starts With Me ” is the title for our virtual camporee.
It seems like life in our world has become more complicated and filled with enormous challenges. When we hear the reports that tell us there are more people in need and few willing to meet those needs. Our God empowers us as His children with the ability to see those needs and courage to act, but many are waiting and watching to see who will be the first to act.
It Starts With Me is an anthem to act! To begin the journey to serve where you are and when there is a need!
In the book, Education page 270.4, we are reminded that, “All who engage in ministry are God’s helping hand. They are co-workers with the angels; rather, they are the human agencies through whom the angels accomplish their mission. Angels speak through their voices, and work by their hands. And the human workers, co-operating with heavenly agencies, have the benefit of their education and experience.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8
May God continue work in and through us all!
Remain Pathfinder Strong, and stay tuned to more updates!

Christopher Alexander Walker was an amazing person whom many people loved and considered a close friend. Despite serious struggles with Sickle Cell Disease, he accomplished a great deal in his too-short life. His academic successes were impressive, but eclipsed by his achievements in youth ministry. His service to youth was as integral to him as breathing. He was a person who radiated joy and humor and warmth. He also understood the challenges of young people and knew how to connect with and support teens. He loved people and kept in touch with so many who needed that connection. He perceived needs and found ways to meet them, often putting people together with others who had the needed skills or resources. He chose to be joyful and grateful every day despite chronic and often severe pain. His faith was his foundation and he showed the world what the love of Jesus looks like in person. His influence will live on in those who were fortunate to share his life.
