JAX SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAM
EXHIBITORS: Adam & Cassidy Purdy
The Jacksonville Summer Training Program is an 8-week spiritual training and experience opportunity. Between Bible study, evangelism, discipleship, and the community, every aspect of the program is designed to train you up in godly character and give you the confidence to walk in obedience to God's call for your life. The time and sacrifice that is given to focusing on your spiritual training next summer will reap benefits that will last the rest of your time in college, adult years, and into eternity.
EAGLE LAKE CAMPS
EXHIBITORS: Matt Little and Ryan Putman
We love Jesus. We love kids. We love fun. We love sharing the Gospel. The purpose of Eagle Lake Camps is to inspire Christ-centered love and commitment through counselor relationships in the midst of exciting outdoor experiences. A ministry of The Navigators, we have more than 60 years of Christian camping experience. We’re committed to knowing Christ, making Him known, and helping others do the same. We accomplish this through exceptionally well-run programs, life-on-life ministry, meeting kids where they are at, and living out contagious fun. Join us and discover why our staff end the summer at Eagle Lake Camps saying “that was the hardest but the BEST summer of my life.”
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MINISTRIES
EXHIBITOR: David Torpen
Nearly 75% of international students never enter an American home. Many of these students will never have a chance to hear the stories of Christmas and Easter, so this is a widely untapped opportunity for followers of Jesus to welcome them, show hospitality, and open the Scriptures with them. Will you join us in doing something about it? Navigators’ International Student Ministries (ISM) is here to help you reach students from all corners of the globe so that those students can take the gospel back to their families and friends.
EXHIBITORS: Madison Thielen and Ty Williams
EDGE is a two year commitment with the Navigators to further ministry on campus and develop your skills in ministry as well. EDGE stands for evangelism, discipleship, growth and experience. Part of the job is evangelizing to students and developing different skills to do this well. The biggest part of the job is discipleship where you meet 1:1 with students and help them further their walk with God. You grow through learning to help students and completing different bible studies and training plans with your campus trainer. The overall experience is worth it!
EXHIBITOR: Katie Greiner
iEDGE is a two year commitment to make disciples of university students overseas. You’ll join a team of 3-4 other recent college grads alongside long-term in-country staff. You’ll make unforgettable friends across cultures and plant the gospel deep in their hearts. You’ll grow in your vision, character, heart, and practical experience. You’ll be challenged in ways you couldn’t have guessed and grow in ways you wouldn’t believe. It will be hard. It will be an adventure. Jesus is worth it. The nations are waiting.
OKLAHOMA CITY NAVIGATORS
EXHIBITORS: Levi & Alyssa Deal and Andrew & Ellie Colby
"This [relational] bridge of trust is strong enough to bear the weight of truth." OKC is next door to everywhere and with one of the richest legacies of disciplemaking anywhere in the country, the relationships you form here in our many diverse networks will bear the weight of truth as you continue to be invested in and as you continue to bring the true gospel with you into the next phases of your life.

WORLD MISSIONS and INTERNATIONAL CAMPUS PARTNERSHIP
EXHIBITOR: Nancy Langley
We launch and develop new generations of people like you to sacrificially advance Jesus’ Kingdom to the ends of the earth. We have hundreds of workers in over 50 countries, from North and South America to Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. Over two-thirds of our overseas workers live in and among people who historically have been resistant to the gospel. Many of them work in or near the 10/40 Window, named for the belt of countries falling 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator from Africa to Asia.
