NavHistory aims to preserve the story of our Worldwide Partnership and to foster an informed understanding of our unique Navigator heritage. Our vision is to serve Navigator leaders and staff, as well as researchers and the public.
The Worldwide Partnership of The Navigators started in the 1930s with a few people studying the Bible together and learning how to imitate Christ in daily life. During World War II, the movement expanded to help American servicemen. Today, a multinational family of Navigators helps people in 115 countries "to know Christ and to make Him known."
The “Short Reads” collection contains excerpts from articles in the Worldwide Partnership collection.
