To Know Christ, make Him Known, and help others do the same.


The Navigators is an International Interdenominational Christian Missions Organization committed to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Navigators is a ministry that helps people to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. We do this via small group and one-on-one discipleship meetings, creating spiritual generations of believers. Since its founding in 1933 by Dawson Trotman, The Navigators has upheld the mission “To know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same.

The Navigators is focused on developing disciples person-by-person-by-person and encouraging spiritual growth across life stages. A disciple is someone who 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 spending time together in His Word, praying with them, walking alongside them in everyday life, and equipping them to do the same with others. God’s transforming work happens in the lives of people this way.

Through Life-to-Life relationships, The Navigators 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 reaches and disciples people in need of the gospel where they work, live, prisons, worship, and play: on tertiary institution campuses and prisons, in ghettos, workplaces, churches, and local communities, and in hard to reach places such as Rural Missions.

Currently, The Navigators are in 115 countries worldwide.
