Pathfinder Bible Experience – PBE

The Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE) is an extra-curricular program introducing Pathfinders to Bible study through trivia-style testing.

Each year, a book or books (alternating Old Testament and New Testament) are assigned for study and memorization. Pathfinders ( teams of six club members) are tested at three levels to advance to the final testing round, along with other North American Division teams.  While PBE may be perceived as a competition, Pathfinders challenge themselves more than they compete against other teams or clubs because everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve a first-place position at every level. Trans-European Division and some parts of Canadian Pathfinders have joined this event. Languages that have joined other than English are Spanish, French, Portuguese, Korean, and Ukrainian.
