The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child’s primary teachers and evangelizers. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. Through the Adventurer Program, the church, home, and school can work together with the parent to develop a mature, happy child.
The Adventurer Club was created to give children an opportunity to belong to an organized peer group. To join, children are invited to participate in various activities which will improve their social skills. The Adventurer Club involves children in grades 1-4 and their parents. The programming and planning for Adventurers should be simple and short, but creative. Parental involvement provides opportunities for parents to participate in the learning experience.
One of the Adventurer Club objectives is to provide a meaningful and exciting experience as the children look forward with anticipation to some day being Pathfinders.
What is the Adventurer curriculum designed to accomplish?
Children will, at their own level, commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ.
Children will gain a positive attitude toward the benefits, joys, and responsibilities of living a Christian life.
Children will acquire the habits, skills and knowledge needed to live for Jesus today.
Parents and other primary care-givers will become more confident and effective as co-laborers with Christ for their children.
The Adventurer Club provides fun and creative ways for children.
- to develop a Christ-like character;
- to experience the joy and satisfaction of doing things well;
- to express their love for Jesus in a natural way;
- to learn good sportsmanship and strengthen their ability to get along with others;
- to discover their God-given abilities and to know how to use them to benefit self and serve others,
- to improve their understanding of what makes families strong.
Adventurer Pledge, Law, & Song
Because Jesus loves me, I will always do my best.
Jesus can help me to:
The Adventurer Song is the NAD official song for the whole Adventurer Club. Historically there were separate songs for Little Lambs and Eager Beavers, but since 2015, all six levels have been part of the same Adventurer ministry and thus share the same song.
We are Adventurers,
At home, at school, at play.
We are Adventurers,
We're learning every day
To be honest, kind, and true,
To be like Jesus through and through!
We are Adventurers!
The West Chester Adventurer program serves an intercultural community of children in pre-kindergarten to 4th and their parents and caregivers through this children’s ministry. The purpose of the program is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful, love relationship with Jesus Christ. It offers instructional curriculum, family enrichment, supplementary resources, and volunteer training from within the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy. The Adventurer program should work to fulfill the gospel commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and depends on the support of a congregation strong in mission and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
