After a long time apart, NCC Adventurers were finally able to gather for a conference-wide Family Fun Day! On Sunday, Nov. 7, more than 400 Adventurers and family members spent a day at the Sacramento Zoo learning about animals and having fun!

The Espinozas, the Hiratas, and the Slatons (Adventurer area coordinators) hosted 18 clubs during the event. “I’m so happy conditions allow for Adventurers to finally get together safely once again,” said Barry van Iderstein, newly elected director of Adventurer, children’s, and family ministries.

The next Adventurer Fun Day is being planned for spring 2022.

On Sabbath, Sept. 11, Pathfinder and Adventurer leaders from clubs around the conference gathered at the Gracepoint church in Rocklin for their annual leadership convention. Speakers included Jasmin Wilson, a clinic therapist at Child & Family Psychological Services in Michigan, and Ingrid Weiss Slikkers, assistant professor at the Andrews University School of Social Work and executive director of the International Center for Trauma Education and Care. The devotional speaker was Luccas Rodor, youth pastor at the Granite Bay Hilltop church.

“It was a very uplifting time as the speakers shared from the Word of God how best to reach out to kids,” said Heber Morales, Area 4 Pathfinder coordinator. “Several leaders told us that this was one of the best conventions they had attended. They were ready to put into practice what they learned.”
