About Master Guides
The Master Guide Program is at the highest level of Adventist Youth Ministries. The Master Guides are leaders that serve the church in all areas of the Youth Ministry. Its curriculum is designed for youth and adults ages 16 and older. It prepares the participant for leadership roles with the Adventurer, Pathfinder, and Youth Ministries. The emphasis is on in-service training and active involvement in learning new skills and developing methods for successful leadership. The purpose of the Master Guide curriculum is to develop youth leadership in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The Master Guide (MG) Ministry is one of the leadership programs that the General Conference Youth Ministries Department uses to train people for youth leadership. A Master Guide provides assistance to the Adventurer, Pathfinders, or Youth Ministries of the local church and/or conference in leadership training, discipleship, and outreach endeavors.
The Master Guide Ministry is NOT an extension of the Pathfinder program. It is a Youth Ministry Leadership Program in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Master Guide is considered to be the highest level in Pathfindering. The Master Guide class is intended to prepare future club leaders.
