Who We Are

The Navigators is a community of friends of all ages who want to know God and Jesus Christ, and who want to love and encourage each other while walking through life together. 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.Thanks for checking out our group. We would love to invite you to connect with us. Please check out our events or contact pages."For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes... " Romans 1:16

What We Do

The Navigators ministry serves as an open door to share Jesus each year through life-on-life relationships, recreation, and discipleship. Our goal is to equip others with the skills and tools for them to advance the gospel wherever life leads.We believe that discipleship is friendship with a vision. The Navigators desire to come alongside, live life with you and to help you know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same."As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace." 1 Peter 4:10

Who We Serve

The Navigators is a Christian ministry running on more than 175 college and university campuses across the US.  In Rochester our large group meetings are held at UMR's 318 Commons basement Room 10 (318 1st Ave. SW) every Thursday night at 7pm during the school year. We also have student led small groups that meet on the campuses of RCTC, UMR, and WSUR each week.

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
