Located in the city of Goshen on 17 acres of wooded land, Pathways has opportunities for a limited number of church youth groups to spend an evening performing service, engaging in spiritual practices, and experiencing fellowship. We can accommodate groups as large as 12 or 15 youth, with sponsors. A typical evening schedule is: 7:00 - 7:45Light work in the woods 7:45 - 8:15Prayer practice: Walking the labyrinth 8:15 - 9:00BONFIRE and fellowship time
Pathways staff supervises the work, leads the prayer practice, and hosts the bonfire. Pathways will also provide any specialty tools needed for the work, as well as insect repellent and special safety gear if needed. We expect youth group sponsors to
Provide a bridge between Pathways staff and the young people
Coordinate transportation of the youth group to and from Pathways
Provide any snacks or treats for the group
Ensure the group is properly dressed for the work at hand - gloves, close-toed shoes, and so forth.
Examples of work performed by groups include gathering and burning brush (from invasives), raking leaves, and spreading mulch.
