WorldWide Partnerships


International IconThe Navigators of Canada are engaged in ministry beyond Canadian borders! We have Canadian Navigators serving in many different countries around the world. As a member of the WorldWide Partnership of The Navigators, we are dedicated to strategically invite, equip and send entrepreneurial Christ-followers to guide others into a deep relationship with Christ.

Navigators travelling the worldWhat does this look like?

We strive to contextualize the Gospel according to the culture we’re active in and present it in an inspiring, life-giving way. We understand the Gospel is not a “one size fits all” message. It is active, engaging and approachable, and our mission is to bring this message to people so it will flow into and through their lives in transforming, empowering ways.

Canadian Navigators serving internationally are risk-taking, spirit-led Christ followers who enter new contexts to collaborate with what God is already doing there and strategically utilize their unique skillsets to disciple with the long-term in mind.


We strongly believe in the dignity, value and unique gifting of every person, and that each person should be given the opportunity to find and explore their passions and learn about their inherent value.

We also believe God has a special place in his heart for the marginalized and that addressing issues of poverty, corruption and injustice is part of our biblical mandate.

We have combined these foundational beliefs into our engagement with the communities along the Onzole River in Ecuador.

Over the past 10 years, Navigator staff have been faithfully present in these communities, helping the people address their specific economic and social challenges while intentionally guiding them to experience a deep, ongoing connection with Jesus.

Through this two-pronged approach, we have seen God move in powerful ways! We’re excited to be sending a team down in February to both continue our involvement with these communities and provide holistic, transformative mentoring for the trip participants.
