Each summer The Navigators® Collegiate Ministries provide multiple intensive summer growth initiatives called a Summer Training Programs (STPs) all throughout the United States. The Navigators in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions offer the “Gulf Coast Summer” Summer Training Program. Students live, work, and learn with other college students across the U.S. for six weeks in St. Petersburg, FL. Each student works a full time job during the day and participates in Bible studies, evangelistic outreaches, discipleship groups, ministry training, fellowship, and other activities during the week. These opportunities for fellowship, one-on-one mentoring, and consistent time in the Word create an ideal environment for students to grow in character, their relationship with Christ and develop ministry and leadership skills.
