The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child's primary teacher and evangelizer. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and further the child's development in spiritual, physical, mental and social areas. In this way the church, home and school can work together with the parent to develop a mature, happy child.

Adventurer Ministries Convention
A yearly Adventurer Ministry Convention is scheduled to provide resources and training for new and returning directors. The 2017 Adventurer Ministries Convention will take place at Cohutta Springs on the weekend of September 8-10, 2017. Registration information coming soon.
Complete and update information on the Yearly Club Application and submit it to the board/pastor so that the application can be submitted to our office. Upon receipt of the application at the conference office, you will be enabled to access the Adventurer website following the annual roll over, assuming your Verified Volunteers clearance is within the three year coverage.
It is your responsibility to make sure that each
staff member (including yourself) completes a screening and training process at Verified Volunteers (see Verified Volunteers instructions, found under Staff Selection/Child Safety at GCC Manual
Online at the home page.) Please make sure to add your staff and parents to your adult list on adventurers.gccsda.com. This will help us get them processed quickly
online. All staff must complete the Verified Volunteers screening and training in order to volunteer to work with children and to be eligible for registration
for conference events. Parents are also required to complete this background check if participating in any overnight event with your club. If staff/parent has completed Verified Volunteers for a different church, notify us so they may be linked to the processed Adventurer staff list.
Please complete these registration forms and submit them at the Adventurer club registration to be announced at your church if a club is planned. Please be advised that if you will participate in any overnight event, you will need to submit a background check process through Verified Volunteers
