Curt and Jeanna Wolf: Navigators, Colorado Springs, CO
The Navigators is an international, interdenominational Christian ministry that helps people grow in Jesus Christ as they navigate through life. The organization brings help, hope, and healing to missionary staff within the Navigators and other missions so they can maximize their contributions to the Kingdom. Navigators seeks to bring emotional, spiritual, relational, and vocational help to missionary staff, their children, and the people they serve. They do this through counseling, peacemaking, restoration, and vocational assessment and advising. They also provide leadership development, assess new staff applicants, provide Sabbatical coaching, and other services. Much of what the Wolfs do is in response to needs, but they also train via conferences and look forward to spending time directly with staff in the field.
