reaching the world through the campus

The Navigators at Kansas State University are a family of students on a mission to know Christ, make him known, and help others do the same.

Our passion is to reproduce disciples through intentional 1:1 training as students experience the transforming power of the gospel and learn to personally engage with the scriptures and non-believers around them.

“If we can win the university today, we will win the world tomorrow”. – Bill Bright

Whatever you decide or wherever you go, we want you to feel welcomed / loved but also challenged / exhorted because we have a God who pursues (in the person and work of Jesus) the undeserving, weak, broken, and messed up while taking sin seriously. And that, is a very very good thing.

Good to meet you and hope to see you around.

Transformed Lives

Joining the Navigators my freshman year was huge for my spiritual growth! I was born and raised in a Christ-following home, but coming to K-State was the first time I had to claim my faith as my own.

 

One of the reasons I was curious about Navs was because of their emphasis on one-on-one discipleship. I felt like this could be a place where I would be fully known. I joined a bible study and quickly found my first impressions to be true. There, I was challenged to deepen my relationship with God and form healthy spiritual habits.

 

I was involved with the K-State Navs until I graduated, and the most impactful part of my time with them was the community. I formed connections with people who took a genuine interest in my life and followed it up with faithful actions.

 

Weekly coffee dates with mentors, bible studies, and NavNights became a natural part of my routine. Additionally, I was lucky enough to meet my best friends who have continued to encourage me long after graduation. My experience ultimately helped me lay a solid faith foundation, grow a heart for the Nations, and build lifelong friendships.

The Navigators at K-State were the catalyst through which my knowledge of God became a relationship with God. This was modeled to me by both students and staff who were willing to open their lives to me, inviting me to join them in walking with God.

 

Bible studies with other students showed me how to read and study the Bible in meaningful, purposeful ways. Events like Main Event and Laborers were a great opportunity to get away from school for a weekend, fellowship with, and learn with other believers. Programs such as Jax STP and Short-term overseas missions provided opportunities to step out of my comfort zone along with other believers into spaces where my faith would grow.

 

I met lifelong friends through the Navs at K-State. My previous friendships became even stronger. And God opened my eyes to truths that have strengthened my faith in Him.
