Who Are We?

The LRC Adventurer program serves an intercultural community of children in grades Pre-K through 4 and their parents and care-givers through a holistic ministry.

The purpose of the program is to support parents and care-givers 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 conference strong in mission and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

The Master Guide (MG) class is the top level of class achievement. It is the "Ph.D." of Youth Ministry in the field. You cannot earn your Master Guide, without taking at least one BST (Basic Staff Training) course.
The Master Guide is the expert, the advisor, the promoter, for Adventurers, Pathfinders, Ambassadors, Youth Emergency Service Corp and Youth. As such, MG is NOT a Pathfinder Program; it is a Youth Ministry Leadership Program.
You now have in the step of one click one of the most current leadership development program for youth ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This concept uses the Master Guide as the foundation for youth ministry leadership, then builds two levels of continuing education that will help keep youth leaders sharp, up-to-date and focused on why we are in this business anyway.
