Us: We met each other while working on staff with The Navigators at the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2015 and got married in April 2017.
Cody: I grew up in South Dakota and went to South Dakota State University, where I got involved with The Navigators and learned what it looked like to be active in my faith- how to read the bible consistently, grow in relationship with God, memorize scripture, and evangelize. I was greatly impacted by The Navigators staff that mentored me and was able to lead one of my childhood friends to Christ and help him learn how to grow and mature in his faith. As a result, I decided to make a life -time investment into full-time ministry, currently with The Navigators.
Kelly: I came to know Christ through The Navigators when I was a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While there, I was overcome by the love and mercy of a forgiving God who had adopted and accepted me into His family. I love sharing my experience of God as a loving, protecting Father. The men and women in The Navigators helped me grow in and share my faith with others, while building deep and encouraging relationships with one another.
