Navigators Neighbors Mission Director
Who We Are
We are a mission of The Navigators with a focus on local communities, neighborhoods, and relational networks. We're here to connect with those who live, work, and play all around us.
As we like to say, we're "next door to everyone" and desire to make a difference for good and for God in their lives.
What We Do
We are committed to helping people communicate the Good News in their natural contexts. We believe in the importance of people (families, affinity groups, other relational connections) and of place (neighborhoods, communities, towns, and cities). We believe God is transforming not merely individuals but communities as well. We want to join him in that.
As neighbors, we are passionate about nurturing and developing lifelong laborers who flourish in generational fruitfulness.
That's a heavy task, yet we are not alone. For it is by the power of Jesus Christ and through the wisdom of the Holy Spirit who directs our steps that we move toward initiating deeper relationships with those around us.
Our vision is to see workers for the Kingdom next door to everyone who are partnering with God and others to transform families, neighborhoods, and communities all across America.
How do we seek to accomplish this? Our strategy is to reach those without Christ, develop them into lifelong laborers who flourish in generational ministry, and help them transform their extended family, relational networks, neighborhood, and community.

There are no prerequisites or specific affiliations required to participate in Navigators activities. We encourage you to come just as you are to enjoy friendship and community with us as we seek to understand who God is and why it matters."Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." Matthew 20:28
Why We Serve
Navigators ministries believes Jesus came so that everyone who believes in Him "may have life and have it abundantly" (John 10:10). People need this abundant life that God offers through Jesus. The heartbeat of The Navigators is discipleship. Jesus came alongside a few ordinary people at a pivotal point in history and walked with them so that they might know Him, and make Him known. Our goal is to be amongst those we serve. We desire to show them Christ's love in a truthful and powerful way, that will change their lives forever."We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too." 1 Thessalonians 2:8
