Pathfinders at the 2019 Chosen International Camporee in Oshkosh in Wisconsin are learning more about the life of David each evening through an onstage drama focusing on David’s experiences of being chosen as king and anointed by the prophet Samuel for his role of leading the nation.
In keeping with this theme, event organizers have set aside two tents on the campground where church leaders can pray with Pathfinders and, along with their club directors who have chosen them for this special service, anoint them for future callings in leadership roles.
“I don’t think you can underestimate the impact on young people when a leader pulls them aside and says, ‘I see real servant leadership potential in you,’’ said MAUC president Gary Thurber. “This can help a young person begin to see how God may call and use them in life in ways they had never thought of before.”
Pathfinders, staff and guests are also invited to write special requests on the giant prayer scroll in the tent that are prayed over every day by volunteers.
