Rich and Jane Berry: Celebrating 40 years with the Navigators
In October, Rich and Jane Berry, leaders of our African American Network, celebrated 40 years with The Navigators. A celebration event was held in Atlanta, Georgia with approximately 260 of their family, friends, and ministry partners. One person in attendance was Veteran NavStaff Paul Hensley (See photo of Paul and Rich) who was the first to recruit and disciple Rich.
Over these past 40 years, Rich and Jane have served in many capacities always focusing on developing disciple making leaders. Rich and Jane have followed God’s call. They have been steadfast and tenacious in pouring out their lives to disciple and train up the next generation of African American leaders. This has been a long obedience in the same direction of building a legacy of African American leaders for the future.
After 40 years, the Lord is leading Rich and Jane to take their obedience to the next level of faith in order to reach the 40 million African Americans, the nations in our nation and beyond. They are responding to the changing tide and changing face of America by launching a Legacy Fund to resource African American ministries. Rich and Jane’s message is clear: a new generation of African American men and women are needed to become our next generation of disciple making leaders.
