Since the start of the Navigator ministry in the UK we have sent a number of mission partners overseas under the auspices of the Navigators as well as many with other mission agencies. UK Navigators have served in diverse places in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America.
Currently we have Navigator mission partners in Poland and France, and expect to be sending a couple to Latvia in the near future. Others based in the UK continue to travel into East and West Africa, and Europe to support and coach local and national leaders who have now taken over the work. We also have British Navs based in the USA to help resource the Navigators global society.
