They are using social media to do just that! They currently have a Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

As their site states, “Navigators are people who love Jesus Christ and desire to help others know and grow in Him as they “navigate” through life.” My bible study leader for the past two years was a navigator who poured into my life immensely (Thank you Sarah!).

One Navigator illustration that I will never forget is The Bridge To Life. Even though I had been preached at up and down about grace, it never sunk in until Sarah showed me this framework. Out of all things, God choose to reveal the concept of grace to me through an illustration. This simple illustration can serve as a very powerful tool for any believer. Currently there is a PDF version available here. While this is a wonderful tool in and of itself, I thought how great would it be if it were more interactive!

One social media tool that can turn any idea into an interactive text is Prezi. The Prezi I created for The Bridge To Life illustration can be viewed here. Prezi is a great tool for anyone with a framework that they want to make more exciting and fun to follow. Your faith-based organization can make a lesson on Prezi, leading a person through by asking questions then answering them one step at a time. Check out how to make your own Prezi!
