For Navigator Staff
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is about putting families that struggle back on their feet. Broken lives, physical calamities, poverty, hard breaks, you name it. Hollywood is good at framing the story so that it really tugs on your heart. But the stories are real and the work they do touches physical, financial and even emotional and spiritual needs. Amazingly enough, most of the labor is by volunteers - companies volunteering their staff and individuals volunteering their own time. Construction workers, interior decorators, landscape designers, movers, artists and more. Thousands of people from every walk of life who just show up to lend a hand. Apart from the cast, virtually everything else is done by volunteers.
NavFusion is in the Extreme Makeover business too. There is a small "cast" - the ten full-time NavFusion Coordinators around the country. But the huge bulk of the work is done by volunteer Campus Leaders giving sacrificially to help spiritually broken people get on their feet. These volunteers are from every walk of life and they minister simply because God has called them to lend a hand. Business professionals, fire fighters, military personnel, professors, teachers, homemakers, and students themselves - nearly all volunteers. Each one is coached by a Nav staff person. Many are coached by the NavFusion Coordinators mentioned above.
There are also staff volunteers who serve as NavFusion Coaches. Men and women from every Navigator Mission are volunteering a few hours a month to coach volunteer Campus Leaders. All they need is a heart for students and a desire to team up with the Collegiate staff team in the region. They encourage, provide resources and equip volunteer Campus Leaders. And they keep those Campus Leaders in the communications loop. They visit the campus occassionally, but a lot of coaching is done on the phone. NavFusion Coordinators coach the coaches, so everyone gets the help they need.
So, if you are a Nav staff person from any mission, and you have a heart to invest in student ministry, NavFusion might be a door for you to do just that. Staff can serve as:
NavFusion Coordinators - a full- or part-time position in the Collegiate Mission. Feeling like it's hard to keep up with students but still desiring to invest on campus? This could be the role for you.
NavFusion Coaches - a very part-time role for full-time staff. You're helping someone else lead the ministry. They keep up with the students. You keep up with the Campus Leader.
