Requirement 1

Be a teenager 13 years of age, and/or in Grade 8 or its equivalent.

The Ranger level has been designed to be within reach of a person in the eighth grade or higher. It should be challenging, yet achievable for a child at this point in his or her formal education.

Requirement 2

Memorize and understand the Adventist Youth Aim and Motto.

AY Aim: The Advent Message to the world in this generation.

AY Motto: The love of Christ constraineth us.

Adventist Youth who are constrained by the love of Christ will accept the responsibility and opportunity of joining with their fellow youth in giving the everlasting gospel to all the world.

The Motto is from 2 Corinthians 5:14 "For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead" KJV but this is really old English. Compare to "The Love we have for Christ is what motivates us" (The Clear Word).

Have your teens discuss the meaning and relevance of the aim and motto. Here are some discussion starters:

  • What is the Advent Message?
  • What is the world?
  • What is my relationship to it?
  • What does "constrains" mean?

Requirement 3

Be an active member of the Pathfinder Club.

The requirement to be an active member of the club is easy to brush over, but consider what it means. An active member is a youth that participates in the spiritual, mental, physical and service activities. It means showing up for meetings and completing the classwork and honors expected. It means following the Pathfinder Law and being a good representative of the club.

Requirement 4

Select and read three books of your choice from the teen Book Club List.

The book club reading list is regularly updated with new books released by Adventist publishing houses. Check with your conference youth department or see here
