Navigators Military Ministry
Live Love financially supports the ministry of the Navigators in San Diego. It is a military ministry that reaches naval personnel with the Gospel and Christian fellowship. Ryan Bailey and Nathan Smith work alongside the military chaplains to teach, counsel, and make disciples among military personnel and their families.
They are passionate about our military and want to share the transforming power of Christ’s love.
Ryan Bailey currently lives in Coronado with his wife and 3 children. They have been involved with the Navy since 2016 and God has called them to serve our military and veteran community here. God is leading them and using them to build His Kingdom and make Jesus known as they meet them on base, on ships, in aviation squadrons, and throughout the city. Recently, Phil Downer, a Vietnam machine gunner who came to faith in Christ and is still serving The Lord at the age of 70, was invited to speak to the military personnel. There were around 700 sailors in attendance, and between 50-100 of them prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! God is always moving and sometimes He moves a lot of hearts at once.
Nathan Smith also lives in Coronado with his wife and 7 children. He leads the small group Bible Study and Life To Life discipleships. Through this ministry, he works alongside U.S. military staff and chaplains to help meet the spiritual needs of service personnel and their families. “We serve those who serve our country.”

The Bailey Family and Nathan Smith have been called to take the good news of God's love to the Navy and spread the message of the Kingdom of God from one person to the next. The Live Love Foundation is blessed to support the work of God through this outreach. If you feel led to make an impact for Christ with the military, please join us in gifting them with prayer and support.
