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

  • Community groups are a weekly student led small group of 5-10 that study the Bible and grow in relationship together. They meet on various nights.

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.

Hi, I’m Anna! My time in the Navs was full of sweet moments and experiences that I’ll never forget. I joined during my sophomore year of college when I was struggling with many things and wow, was God’s timing absolutely perfect. Being a part of the Navs impacted my walk with the Lord in more ways than I could have ever imagined. Being a part of the Navs gave me an opportunity to learn how to live my life fully for Christ.

 

From developing an understanding of what it truly meant to have a relationship with the Lord, to being loved on and discipled by so many godly women, and then getting to love and disciple freshmen women during my last year, God changed my heart in many ways and grew me for His glory. God blessed me with so many ways to serve and love others in the Navs, which has lead to a desire to serve and love others in my church! I met my very best friends through Navs and they still, continually, point me to Christ in all that I do!

 

I am forever thankful to our Savior for taking my scared, sad, 19 year old self and giving me a community of believers to walk along side as I grew in my walk with the Lord during those college years!
