The Navigators, Student Ministry and 20s Staff
The Navigators in New Zealand and around the globe are passionate about knowing Jesus, making Him known, and helping others do the same. I met The Navigators in the United States as a university student and God used that time to grow me as a disciple of Jesus and learn how to make disciples. After graduating, I joined Navigator staff and moved to Auckland in early 2016 to labour for God’s kingdom at Auckland Uni. I have a passion to see people come to know Jesus, grow in their knowledge and love for Him, and help them share about Jesus with the people they know.

My role is the SCNZ Operations and Training Director. I also provide Sports Chaplaincy support to Gymnastics New Zealand, AUT Millennium Institute and the North Harbour Water Polo Club.

Auckland Japanese Christian Church
We are all about helping Japanese people to know Christ. As Christianity is tiny in Japan (less than 1％ of population), we see our church as important mission ground and it is our call to spread the gospel to those who come NZ to study or working holiday, as well as locals.
