Andrew Ledwith, Serving with The Navigators

My Role as Director of Collegiate Communications

I serve at Navigator headquarters in Colorado Springs as the communications director for the collegiate mission. My functions are numerous, but the one I would like to highlight is my vision and activity on and its social media presence. I have written at length on this subject in a blog post, but here is a quick summary of some key objectives:

  • Publish compelling, original content to the Campus Navs blog created largely by our field staff
  • Listen and engage our students, staff, and other interested individuals through Campus Navs social media accounts
  • Invite engagement to our “satellite presence”—campus websites,, staff blogs, etc.—as a way of building an extended community

Raising Financial Support

I hope to raise $20,500 during 2015 to produce four additional episodes of the Harvest Film Series (see below). A complete breakdown of these expenses is available here.

Note: All charitable contributions will be used for ministry expenses. None of your gift will go toward my personal salary.

Feel free to contact me if you’d like more information.

The Vision for the Harvest Film Series

Discipleship is at the very heart of The Navigators’ calling. We strive to make spiritual generation of laborers who would live and disciple among the lost. But discipleship isn’t a Navigator invention; it’s something we see in the Scriptures. In fact, Jesus tells His disciples to go and make more disciples (Matthew 28:19). While the concept and the command remain the same, the mediums available to teach others about discipleship have changed.

Today’s college students grew up watching YouTube videos and turning to Google to get their questions answered. Harvest aims to pass on the vision of discipleship through professionally-made short films distributed online to impact a generation compelled by visual media.

The first two films have been produced and are embedded below.

To Advance the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations through spiritual generations of laborers living and discipling among the lost.
