Disciplemaking. It can sound difficult and overwhelming.

But what if you discovered you already have what it takes? It’s true! Disciplemaking can be one of the most natural things any believer does. All you need is just what God has given you—your gifts, heart and relationship with Him. So when it comes to disciplemaking you really do have what it takes. And we can help.

Let’s Talk About Life-to-Life® Discipleship:

“One of the most powerful lessons I’ve learned about discipleship is that it’s more of a lifestyle than a program.

The women who have invested in me over the years have been busy wives or moms who often worked full-time, so the time they spent discipling me was organic to who they were. We met regularly to process life and talk about our walks with Jesus at soccer games or at playgrounds while their children played. We found time to pray and read the Bible when we could. They walked with me through real-life circumstances–they heard the beautiful–which, when you think about it, is exactly what Jesus did with his disciples.

This model of discipleship is so empowering to all walks of life, because it gives us space to be creative, flexible and to be us. The everyday choices you make have a ripple effect on whatever communities you are a part of in life.”

The Navigators

For over 90 years, Navigators have helped people around the world bring hope and purpose to others through something we call Life-to-Life® discipleship.

It’s not a program or curriculum, it’s more of a commitment to help our friends know Jesus, starting from wherever they are in life.

Life-to-Life discipleship has three layers to it:

To know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same®.

This means that wherever we are, Navigators are helping people to:

  • Share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who don’t yet know Him
  • Help their friends grow in relationship with God through study of the Word and prayer
  • Equip those we disciple to invest their own lives in discipling others on college campuses, military bases, in cities, neighborhoods, and workplaces, as well as in hard-to-reach places all over the world.
