Cameron and Sonia Norvell
Cameron and Sonia enjoy raising two wonderful children and ministering with The Navigators at Texas A&M. Sonia grew up in the Rio Grande Valley with Roman Catholic roots. Her faith blossomed before high school as she embraced a personal relationship with God by placing her faith in Christ. Cameron’s faith grew as a student at Texas A&M when God used a group of Navigators to help him develop a true walk with Christ. They have both been active in Grace Bible Church since they were married and moved to Aggieland in 2001. Besides directing the ministry and discipling students, they enjoy fishing, disc golf, and spending time with people.
During his junior year at Texas A&M, Robert listened to a debate between Christians and Atheists that changed his life. After much internal debate and hearing Navigators testimonies, he started following Christ. Two years later, he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and immediately joined staff with The Navigators. One thing he loves about his job is explaining Scripture to help students work through questions and overcome obstacles. Robert also likes competitive board games, ping-pong, and ultimate frisbee.
Austen and Samara Parker
Through small-group Bible studies and life-on-life discipleship, Austen and Samara come alongside people and teach them to be Christ’s followers as they study and apply the Word of God to chart their lives. Every year in their collegiate ministry, they see thousands of students meet Christ, grow in Him, and become totally available to God during college and after they graduate. Throughout the college careers of these students, Austen and Samara help them develop strong spiritual foundations and encourage them to pass on what they have learned to their friends and family, developing life-long laborers in the Kingdom.
