Philosophy of Pathfindering

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is oldhe will not turn from it.”

Proverbs 22:6 NIV

Philosophy of Pathfindering

  • Proverbs 22:6

    • Training them while they are young is important because 70% of Christians make their decision for Christ before the age of 14 (christianitytoday.com)

    • Because of changes in society such as:

      • divorce causing single parent homes,

  • 50% of our kids not attending Christian schools,

  • Fewer families in society have any contact with Christianity
