NextGen Pastor Pin Collection for Chosen International Pathfinder Camporee

NAD Ministerial Pin set Collection.jpg

The limited spinner pin collection of the North American Division Ministerial Association, which highlights the theme Chosenfor the International Pathfinder Camporee is coming to Oshkosh. The collection includes six luxury pins which will connect Pathfinders attending the Camporee with the mission and initiatives of the Adventist Church in North America.

Explanation of the Pins

Each pin of the collection tells the story of David, a teen who accepted the call from God to save his people by facing a giant when no one else was willing to do it and eventually chosen by God to be the leader of his nation. 

Pin Highlights:

•  David is represented by two Pathfinders (a girl and a boy) whom God also wants to use to defeat present giants and win victories for their families, communities, and churches.

•  The 9 Unions of the North American Division and the Guam Micronesia Mission are intentionally engraved on the pin to help Pathfinders identify the regions of the Division territory.

•  Five stones spin over the Unions and the Mission of the North American Division, each stone representing one of the five stones picked by David as he faced the giant and led the people of God to victory. Each one of the stones has been named after an initiative of the North American Division Ministerial Association: (1) Compassion, (2) Plant1000, (3) Women Clergy, (4) NextGen Pastors, and (5) nadEvangelism in its varied ways. We would like to invite each Pathfinder and each Pathfinder Club in North America to be engaged with these initiatives in their local church.

•  Each pin has the following websites engraved on the back to help those interested in understanding how meaningful and vital these initiatives, featured on the pin, are to the Adventist Church in North America: www.nadministerial.comwww.compassionmovement.orgwww.nadchurchplant.org
