Across state lines: "our Judea"
"Navigators" @ UMASS Amherst: The Daman Family
Navigators is a college student ministry at UMASS Amherst, characterized by an eagerness to introduce Jesus to those who don't know Him, a passion to see those who do know Jesus deepen their relationship with Him, and a commitment to training Jesus followers to continue this nurturing process among the people they know. Every year in our Collegiate ministry we see thousands of students meet Christ, grow in Him, and become totally available to God during college and after they graduate. Throughout their college careers, we help these students develop strong spiritual foundations and encourage them to pass on what they have learned to their friends and family. We develop life-long laborers in the Kingdom.
