The UCSD Navigators are a growing community on the campus at the University of California, San Diego. Our large group gathering is called NavNite where we worship God, hear student testimonies, play crazy games, and hear Bible centered talks every Friday. Following NavNite we have some more fun at AfterNavs, a large group event every Friday night. Throughout the weeks our students are involved with bible studies on campus, reading the bible with first timers, one-on-one discipleship, getting spiritual development, building deep relationships, and having adventures together!
