Navigator ministry is carried out by two types of people … labourers and full-time staff. Labourers have a regular job, and spend their off hours actively ministering to students, friends and work colleagues. Full-time staff are financially supported by others, and so have their schedule completely free for ministry.
Right now we especially need more full-time staff. We sense the Lord is telling us to, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.” (Is. 54:2). Opportunities are presenting themselves to start works at several additional tertiary and secondary schools. We are re-engaging with our alumni, many of whom are asking for help to “labour in the harvest” once again.
To seize the opportunities we need people who, like the first disciples, are willing to leave their jobs (“throw down their nets”) and serve the Lord full-time. Roger Yeo (pictured at left) is a wonderful example of this. He left an excellent job at Mindef so that he could invest in the next generation. Is the Lord calling you, just like he did Roger, to join us full-time? The costs are great, but the rewards are priceless!
