John & Melanie Birkenbine

Serving with the Navigator's at Penn State University

John & Melanie have been married since 2009 and on staff with The Navigators since 2012.

Our passion is to help others know Christ and make Him known. Through small-group Bible studies and life-on-life discipleship, we come alongside people and teach them to be Christ's followers as they study and apply the Word of God to chart their lives. Then we train them to pass what they have learned on to others.

Every year in our Collegiate ministry we see hundreds of students meet Christ, grow in Him, and become totally available to God during college and after they graduate. Throughout their college careers, we help these students develop strong spiritual foundations and encourage them to pass on what they have learned to their friends and family. We develop life-long laborers in the Kingdom.

"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared..." - 1 Corinthians 15:3-5
