Organization Overview

The Navigators was established for the purpose of helping people to live out the Gospel as written in the Bible.

It was started in 1933 by Dawson Troutman in United States and now the movement has spread to 104 countries throughout the world. It's impact has been in to over 214 nationalities, 161 languages.

Even though the movement had initially started in the US it quickly crossed borders of nationalities and cultures throughout the world. Many are looking toward Christ and trying to live out the Gospel. In Asia, the movement started in 1949 and now we have 791 staff in Asia which accounts for 19 percent of out total Navigator staff in the world.

In 1951, Roy Robertson and Bob Boardman came to Japan, beginning this movement. We now have staff in 8 major cities ranging from Sapporo to Fukuoka on Kyushu Island.
