About Us


Our calling, our mission, our values.

Who we are

The Navigators is a ministry that shares the gospel of Jesus and helps people grow in their relationship with Him through Life-to-Life® discipleship, creating spiritual generations of believers. Since its founding in 1933, The Navigators has upheld the mission “to know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same®.”

What discipleship means to us

The Navigators develop disciples person-by-person-by-person and encourage spiritual growth across life stages. A disciple believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, intentionally learns from Him, and strives to live more like Him. Discipleship means intentionally helping people learn from and live more like Christ by praying with them, spending time together in His Word, walking alongside them in everyday life, and equipping them to do the same with others. God is transforming lives through these spiritual generations.

Our Mission

To share the gospel and disciple all people in all places, The Navigators includes a wide variety of ministries and a broad family of missionaries, supporters, and volunteers. The Navigators reach and disciple people in need of the gospel where they work, live, worship, and play: on college campuses and military bases, in inner cities, workplaces, churches, local communities, and hard-to-reach places.

Our Goal

Through Life-to-Life relationships, The Navigator’s discipleship fulfills the message of 2 Timothy 2:2: “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 (NIV).”

The Navigators offers tools and an online resource library to equip believers and help them live out Life-to-Life discipleship in their own lives. Read our Core Documents here.
