What is NavFusion?
We are students—both followers of Christ and those who just want a safe place to ask significant questions. And we’re a group of men and women—Campus Leaders who are mostly volunteers—who are excited about seeing the Gospel of Jesus Christ touch lives on college campuses. We are also experienced Navigator staff representatives who act as coaches for the Campus Leaders and their groups.
NavFusion, formerly called the Campus Leadership Network (CLN), is a network of Navigator collegiate ministries where the leaders are not full-time, salaried staff with The Navigators, but who hold true to The Navigators’ core calling, values and vision.
Campus Leaders, the great majority being volunteers, are the key to the success of NavFusion. In Moses’ time, volunteers built the temple. Under Nehemiah’s leadership, volunteers rebuilt the city walls. And after Jesus walked the earth, volunteers helped build the church. Volunteers have also been part of the fabric of the American experiment from the beginning. They’ve employed their time, talent and treasure to change society. In fact, in the late 1800s, student volunteers were the impetus behind the first foreign missionary movement in America. Young men and women, ignited by God’s Spirit and His Word, answered the call to serve overseas in amazing ways. Today, NavFusion campus leaders come from every walk of life—business professionals, firemen, military personnel, professors, teachers, homemakers, and students themselves. Volunteers.
Then there are also a few partnerships with college pastors and members of other campus ministries who also serve as campus leaders. Whether volunteers or ministry partners, NavFusion Campus Leaders are part of the fabric of the movement of American student ministries. God’s Spirit is calling men and women of all ages to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ among the students of America. These Campus Leaders are answering the call. Our dream is to see God move in the lives of students all across this nation and you can be a part.
Campus Leaders can be:
College professors and administrators
Men and women in the community
Ministry partners from local churches or other campus ministries
What is NavFusion like? It’s like a fusion reactor where certain elements are combined to create a critical mass for a chain reaction. Incredible energy is given off making the reaction self-sustaining. If harnessed, it can benefit all of creation.
We benefit from an actual physical fusion reaction that is occurring each and every day of our lives. The sun is a gigantic fusion reactor.
The ministry of NavFusion is like a spiritual reaction. Certain elements—students and campus leaders—are combined by the Holy Spirit to create a critical mass for a powerful reaction. One reaction feeds off another and suddenly, the reactions are multiplying and self-sustaining. This chain reaction, of course, is called spiritual multiplication.
NavFusion is an integral part of The Navigators’ College ministries. Just like on Navigator staff-led campuses, we are committed to advancing the Gospel among students in an environment of grace, helping students to live Christ-centered lives, and equipping them to pass on their faith to others. We envision graduating students going into every walk of life, taking the Gospel of Christ and His kingdom into every nook and cranny of American culture.
