The Pathfinders class features a lecture teaching style. They are committed to the systematic study of God’s Word each week. They enjoy weekly fellowship at a local area restaurant after class. The men also meet monthly for breakfast and fellowship and an occasional luncheon, too. They enjoy an annual Christmas dinner complete with entertainment.
The class teacher, Dr. Eugene Merrill, is the founder of this class 40+ years ago. Dr. Merrill is Old Testament Scholar-in-Residence, Criswell College and Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies Emeritus, Dallas Theological Seminary. He is soft-spoken but not afraid to tackle hard issues. He and his wife, Dr. Janet Merrill, live in Dallas.
