About Us

  • Workplace Bible Studies

    A natural overflow of the Faith@Work luncheons are the Workplace Bible Studies being held throughout Albuquerque. Training and support is also provided for women who want to start Bible studies in their offices.

  • Faith@Work Luncheons

    One practical way we carry out our mission is through monthly Faith@Work luncheons. With an average of 130 attendees, each month we hear an encouraging testimony from a woman who has been challenged to put her faith to work in her workplace. Afterwards there is a time at our individual tables to discuss how the speaker’s experience is relevant in our own lives and how we can “challenge” one another to learn from it.

  • Come to the Banquet

    Another beneficial and popular ministry is called “Come to the Banquet.” It was developed when Karen found herself hungering for more in her own quiet time with God. With the premise that spending time with God can be a feast of the senses, Karen leads workshops that teach women some of the exciting principles she has learned.

The mission of the Navigator’s Business Women’s Ministry of Albuquerque is to help business and professional women find their meaning, connectedness, identity and esteem in Christ.

Work has become our new religion, where we worship and give our time. As people’s commitment to family, community and faith are shrinking, they begin to look to their careers to provide them with meaning, connectedness, identity, and esteem.

  • The luncheon was terrific!

    Just wanted to say thank you! The luncheon was terrific! My daughter really enjoyed the speaker and the whole experience. Funny, she knew someone sitting at our table. It was her 4th grade teacher's wife! ...hoping to make the next one in July.

  • Wow!

    Thank you so much for yesterday. I really enjoyed the speaker and her message. Realizing that work is a life long privilege opened my eyes to a lot. I figured out that I am living the life that God wants me to live. When you asked the question, "Who in your life is inspiring to you," your mom was at my table and one of the other ladies said, "Barbara" and proceeded to tell us how she felt about her. Wow! It was kind of teary at our table.

  • Faith@work has become a helpful partner in my journey with God.

    I just wanted to thank you again for today's talk on pride. This is the biggy for me, something I struggle with daily. I'm aware of my pride and I hear our Pastor's word when he speaks of it, but your talk really helped me put it into perspective in regards to my life. Faith@work has become a helpful partner in my journey with God. You did awesome and I just know that I'm not the only woman attending today that left with a new outlook on their personal walk of faith. I learned to pray for increase of faith and my servant hood and to lessen the ME in all that I think, do, and act.

    I really enjoyed our discussion on our personal journals because it is daily becoming a part of me and a way to express myself to God when words just won't come. Sometimes even to put into words just a notion or thought that has entered the outer realm of my mind but hasn't yet manifested itself. Your mom introduced me to the journal so it should have been no surprise to see that you keep one (well several).

  • Faith@Work luncheons have been a great monthly encouragement to me.

    Faith@Work luncheons have been a great monthly encouragement to me. A friend introduced me to them a few years ago when I was new to Albuquerque and it has been a wonderful way to meet new friends. Each month I come away challenged to put into action what I learned from the speaker and I love sharing their message with others. Recently I have been inviting others to attend with me. They are just as thankful as I to be a part of this group!

I knew God was calling me into vocational ministry very shortly after becoming a Christian. My husband Leroy and I came to the Lord in January of 1989, and within weeks we were being discipled by Nav staff. Within two years we were leading a young couples’ Bible Study at our church and I found myself discipling women, leading mini-retreats in my home, and teaching others how to lead. This led to an opportunity to direct women’s ministry for my church where, among other things, I delighted in leading over 200 women on an annual retreat to Glorieta Conference Center for five years.

In God’s perfect timing, He called me to the staff of The Navigators in 2001, and began to develop a ministry to business and professional women in Albuquerque. One of the signature events of this ministry has been the Faith@Work luncheons that I host every other month for business women throughout Albuquerque. 

Another passion of mine is a workshop I developed called Come to the Banquet; a creative approach to experiencing God with all the senses. 

Finally, Leroy and I consider our greatest investment to be our kids. Rebecca and her husband Justin, with our precious grandson, Hudson, are moving to Albuquerque in July of 2017.  Nick lives in town and works at Sandia Labs. We pray that they will have a significant impact for God’s kingdom on the next generation.

And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
– 2 Timothy 2:2
