Master Guides



The Kansas-Nebraska Conference employs the Master Guide program to train people for youth leadership. It is often referred to as the "Ph.D." of youth ministry in the field. This is not totally correct as it is instead of graduating from being served Master Guides go on to now serve. We expect Master Guides to continue learning. To that end, we offer continuing education opportunities.

You cannot earn your Master Guide without taking at least one Basic Staff Training (BST) course in Pathfinder, Adventurer, or Adventist Youth.

The Master Guide is the expert, the adviser, the promoter for Adventurers, Pathfinders, and Adventist Youth clubs and programs.

The Master Guide class is neither a Pathfinder program or an Adventurer Program, it is a Youth Ministry Leadership Program for training and equipping leaders.
