Pathfinder Bible Experience – PBE

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

Each year a book or books are assigned for study and then Pathfinders are tested in three different levels of testing to advance on to the final round of testing along with other teams from the North American Division. While PBE may be perceived as a competition, Pathfinders are actually challenging themselves more than they are competing against other teams or clubs because everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve a first place position at every level.
