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


The Navigators are an international, interdenominational Christian ministry established in 1933. Our motto is, "To know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same™."


We do this through building Life-to-Life™ mentoring—or discipling—relationships among Christ followers, equipping them to make an impact on the people around them for God's glory.

We would love to get to know you!

Bible Study

Knowing the Bible and the God who wrote it is the best investment you can make while in college (and for the rest of your life).  Therefore, we put a high priority on studying and discussing the Bible together. Expect several IBDs (Investigative Bible Discussions) different nights of the week in several dorms for those who are just checking things out. For those who are ready to join the OSU Navs, plan to do an introductory Bible study with a student or staff.


A place to know and be known

Every Thursday, we meet in small groups at several locations, Our NavPods rotate between a Bible-centered message and practical workshops, but we always hang out together before and after. This is a great way to get to know us and to be challenged in your relationship with God and others.

Before, I was ashamed to call myself a Christian because I never put God as a priority in my life. Ever since then, I pray and read the Bible almost daily. In all honesty, joining The Navigators was the best thing that has happened to me since I came to college!
