Each summer well over 200 Navigator students and staff invest their time in missions—going to countries around the globe to help take the Kingdom of God to the nations. Short-term mission trip scholarships allow us to offer committed young disciples a way to contribute to our long-term missions efforts in that field, grow in their hearts for missions, and visualize more clearly how they could serve overseas for a longer term.
We advertise these mission trip opportunities well in advance; but without funding help some students can hardly consider a trip. Your gift can equip new generations to live out Jesus’ Kingdom among the nations.
Each region of the world has a team of Navigators shepherds, veteran missionaries who develop and care for our overseas workers. Many of these workers live in anti-Christian contexts and face the daily pressures of cross-cultural ministry. Their regional shepherds travel to see them face-to-face, share meals at their tables, visit the markets where they shop, and walk with them and their kids to school.
Regional shepherds raise a portion of their travel budgets, but with our team of shepherds flying to fifty countries around the world, costs are high. Help us care for our missionaries.
The Navigators World Missions Family Gathering provides rest and renewal for our people on the front lines. Their weeklong visit to Colorado gives them a break from the concerns and ministry of overseas life. The Family Gathering also allows us to celebrate them in person and develop them for the work ahead.
To allow as many as possible to come, Navigators World Missions subsidizes half of the expenses for the retreat. Partner with us to encourage and revitalize our overseas laborers.
