Who are The Navigators? 

Thank you for your interest in learning more about The Navigators®. The Navigators is a ministry that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ and helps others grow in Him through Life-to-Life discipleship. We do this on college campuses, and military bases, and in workplaces, inner cities, local communities, and hard-to-reach places. Established in 1933 and headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we are an international, interdenominational Christian ministry with an active presence in more than 100 countries.

The mission of The Navigators is to advance the gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations through life-to-life mentoring—or discipling—defined as day by day relationships with people, applying ourselves to prayer, reading the Bible and equipping them to do the same with others. This then becomes life-to-life-to-life-to-life. It’s what we call “generational multiplication,” as described in the New Testament: And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2 NIV).
