Community
The importance of building community.
Hebrews 10:24-25
And let us consider how we may spur
one another on toward love and good
deeds, not giving up meeting together,
as some are in the habit of doing, but
encouraging one another---and all the
more as you see the Day
approaching.

My Personal Plan for Ministry

The Navigators
To Know Christ and to Make Him
Known
The Navigators is an international,
interdenominational Christian ministry that helps
people grow in Jesus Christ as they navigate
through life.
We spread the Good News of Jesus Christ by
establishing life-on-life mentoring---or discipling--relationships with people, equipping them to make
an impact on those around them for Gods glory.

2 Timothy 2:2

And the things you have heard me say in the


presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable
men who will also be qualified to teach others.

Tool Time
The Navigators stress the importance of
equipping students with valuable resources to
encourage them to know God better, grow in
faith, and learn the truth of His Word.
The 3 Areas:
1. Bible Study/Prayer Resources: A.C.T.S Prayer
2. Discipleship Resources: The Wheel

3. Evangelism Resources: The Bridge to Life

Bible Study
Resources
The Navigators Calling is to advance the
Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into
the nations through spiritual
generations of laborers living and
discipling among the lost.
A significant part of this process is listening
to God through the study of the Scriptures.
It is important to provide a collection of
tools to help both new believers and those
mature in the faith discover new depth and

Discipleship
Resources
In keeping with The Navigators calling
to advance the Gospel of Jesus through
spiritual generations of disciples, we
actively work to provide resources
to help believers draw closer to
God and disciple others to do the
same.

The Wheel
A simple but effective illustration The Wheel is
a discipleship tool used ever since its creation
by Navigators founder Dawson Trotman. It
helps Christians understand how they are
called to live as disciples of Christ.

crucially important component of a vibrant

Evangelism
Resources
The Navigators calling propels us to
live and disciple among the lost. To do
this, we strive to provide helpful
resources that equip and empower
diciplemakers to confidently and
boldly share the Gospel with the
lost.

Matthew 9:35-38
Jesus went through all the towns and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the
good news of the kingdom and healing every
disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds,
he had compassion on them, because they
were harassed and helpless, like sheep without
a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples,
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are
few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to
send out workers into his harvest field.

The Navigators
EDGE Staff
As a ministry of The Navigators, EDGE Corps is a one or two
year opportunity for recent college graduates and young
adults to communicate the love of Christ on a college campus
by intentionally investing in the lives of college students. In
return, they receive mentoring and training that will impact
them for a lifetime.
College is a critical time, and this generation of students faces
more moral, ethical and spiritual decisions than any
generation before it. As they wrestle with family breakdown,
hopelessness and moral drift, students are in the midst of
making major life decisions. EDGE Corps is an opportunity
to reach out to those on campus who dont yet know Christ.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may
strengthen you with power through his Spirit
in your inner being, o that Christ may dwell in
your hearts through faith. And I pray that
you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lords
holy people, to grasp how wide and long
and high and deep is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses
knowledgethat you may be filled to the
measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably
more than all we ask or imagine, according
to his power that is at work within us, to
him be glory in the church and in Christ
Jesus throughout all generations, for ever
