About Brian and Lexi Buffington
Thank you for visiting our Staff Page! We hope that you get a glimpse into our lives and our love for Jesus and people. Before we were married, each of us felt a calling from God to become Navigator staff and give our lives to vocationally helping people know Jesus on a deeper level – for some, that might mean learning how to connect with Jesus in His Word and in prayer or how to talk about Jesus with their non-Christian family/friends; for others, that might mean investigating Jesus’ claims for the first time. Whatever the case, we long for people to know Jesus and the power of His resurrection (Philippians 3:10). After we got married and finished our initial training with The Navigators, we moved to Bloomington, IN where we’ve been serving as the campus directors for the Indiana University Navigators since 2012. We consider it a huge privilege and joy to help these young men and women walk with Jesus and gain a vision to pass on what they’ve learned to the next generation – that eventually, the nations might intimately know the love and saving grace of Christ.
Lexi grew up in Florida and came to faith in Christ during high school. While she was a student at the University of Florida, she met The Navigators. Her involvement with this community greatly shaped her walk with Jesus and brought healing and transformation to her soul. There were some significant women who invested in Lexi, and because of their investment and its impact, Lexi inherited this same passion – to trust God to use her life to help others grow in their faith, teaching them to do the same.
Brian was born in California, but his family moved to Indiana while he was young. He started walking with Jesus while in high school as well. Upon arriving at Indiana University for college, Brian knew that he had to get plugged into a Christian community – he needed help with knowing Jesus more fully and what the Bible says about life. Through his involvement with The Navigators, Brian grew in his maturity in Christ and gained a heart for Jesus, people, and the nations.
Both of us love Jesus deeply, and we want others to come to the same point through spending time with Jesus in His Word. We could not invest full-time in college students without a faithful, committed, and generous team of people who pray for and partner with us financially. If you would like to join our team, we would love to have you partner with us as we trust God to spread the gospel into the nations through our lives!
