Thinking about joining OM’s Ship Ministry? Here’s why you should take a leap of faith!
#1 Serve God and people
Everyone in OM’s ship ministry is a volunteer. From the captains to the housekeepers, each person is supported financially and in prayer by family, friends and their church back home. They all share a heart for making a difference in the lives of other people. Most would agree that serving is both a humbling and a rewarding experience.
#2 Meet a growing need
Did you know that an estimated three billion people still haven’t heard about God’s love? And this number is increasing daily. Most can be found in countries between 10- and 40-degrees north latitude, known as the ‘10/40 window’.
As a part of OM’s Ship Ministry, you will share the hope that comes from God with people you meet in each port.
#3 Experience growth and change
Whether it is emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually, there is no doubt that serving with OM’s Ship Ministry will stretch you.

But if you want to grow and to build your character, then join to see how your life changes!
#4 Use your skills and talents for God
