A Transformed Life

What impact can one life have?  The Navigators trusts that one transformed life can influence countless others, just as one seed can reproduce into many, many more.

Stu Moorhouse serves at the University of Canterbury (UC) and Lincoln University.  Part of the UC ministry has been engaging with students in a hall of residence.  In 2022, Stu helped lead a cooking class at a hall and a Christianity Explored course that followed.  This is where Stu met Flynn, a student who was initially skeptical of Christianity but was hungry for hope and purpose and was keen to explore.

Through weekly one-on-one meetings, Flynn being welcomed into The Navigators community, and seeking God in prayer and the Bible, Flynn came to faith in Jesus.

This year, Flynn is a Residential Advisor in the same hall where he has a relational base to share Jesus with the other students and invest in them.  Through a Navigators men’s group and Stu’s discipleship, Flynn is intentionally coming alongside and conversing about God with a couple students. Flynn desires to see spiritual generations from his life as he seeks to know Jesus and make him known. Flynn is also excited to be going on the overseas mission trip to Fiji you will have read about last month.

“[Jesus] told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.  Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of all garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come a perch on its branches.”  Matthew 13:31-32

One transformed life—like Flynn’s—can result in countless others coming to faith in God; and many more lives journeying toward Jesus through them.
