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 God's glory.

Since 1933, The Navigators has been introducing Jesus to those who don't know Him and helping those who do know Jesus deepen their relationship with Him. We train others to continue this discipleship process where they live, work, and play. Today, Navigators serve in more than 100 countries.

NavPress advances the calling of The Navigators by bringing biblically rooted, culturally relevant, and practical products to people who want to know and love Christ deeply. Through The Message Bible, books and Bible studies, NavPress brings positive spiritual movement to hearts and lives.

Check out our YouTube channel for a large collection of Navigator videos that tell the story of how people around the world live out our calling to make disciples. The series Generations illustrates the biblical concept of creating disciples who will go on to teach others (see 2 Timothy 2:2).
