Michael & Marsha Slone, The Navigators - US Naval Academy
Mike and Marsha are currently ministering at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. They arrived here in January 2002 to join their teammates, Ron and Marleen Koehler. The Naval Academy, commonly known as The Yard, is the home to 4000+ college students called Midshipmen, all destined to be active duty Naval and Marine Corps Officers upon graduation.
Each week Mike and Marsha help facilitate two group meetings of 40-60 Midshipmen for worship, community, and Bible teaching about Christian basics in doctrine, living, and ministering. Throughout the week, they meet with individual Midshipmen for personalized discipleship training. In addition, there are weekend retreats away from the Yard and various events in their home, nicknamed "The Brook" by the Mids!
Their primary ministry focus is with a group of African American Midshipmen who meet on Thursday nights at what they call the Triad Christian Fellowship. They have a Midshipmen leadership team and we meet at least once a month for a couple of hours to pray together, plan, keep the ministry on track, remain accountable for delegated responsibilities, and just love and enjoy each other.
