Every year the Navigators have a conference (The Laborers Conference) aimed at training the current and future student leaders of the college campus. Over 300 student leaders from 6 different campuses in the region attended the conference. The theme of the conference was “To know Christ, and make Him known.” Students attended workshops designed to encourage them in their faith and equip them with the tools they need to deepen their relationship with God and share it with their friends. Praise God that the 300 students committed a weekend of their lives to learn how to lead their campus ministries! UNC had 40 students attend; some of them were already student leaders looking to grow in their knowledge and ability to lead. Other students came because they want to play a bigger role in the ministry and help lead things like Bible Studies or Investigative Bible Conversation with non-believing friends. It was very encouraging to see our students take the initiative for their campus by attending this conference!
