Logos Hope and Doulos Hope provide knowledge, help and hope to thousands every year, as they visit the port cities of the world.
Our Short-Term Exposure Programme (STEP) is ideal if you’d like to test your calling and experience what it’s like to serve on board one of our ships.
STEP will offer you a unique insight into what it means to serve globally in a multicultural environment.
No previous experience or particular skills required. You’ll receive training in preparation for coming on board.
Once on board, you will benefit from further ‘on the job’ training, combined with exciting opportunities to develop your ministry and life skills.
Got skills? We’ve got opportunities!
From deck and engineering officers and ratings, to doctors, cooks, electricians, plumbers, welders, carpenters, bookkeepers, journalists, photographers, designers, information technology and audio-visual professionals, to name a few!
Logos Hope is OM’s largest ship. After undergoing a complete renovation that transformed her from a car ferry, Logos Hope launched into active service in February 2009.
Today, Logos Hope visits each port for several weeks at a time and opens the gangways to hundreds and sometimes thousands of visitors each day. On average, over one million visitors have been welcomed on board every year!
The floating bookfair offers over 5,000 titles, providing many visitors their first-ever opportunity to purchase quality educational literature, at discounted prices.
OM’s Ship Ministry launched Doulos Hope in 2023. Meaning ‘Servant of Hope’, she brings many fresh and exciting advantages to our ministry.
This smaller, agile vessel can operate in shallower waters and access ports that have been beyond the reach of her sister ship, Logos Hope. She is expected to serve largely in East Asia and Pacific regions.
The ship has six decks with a brand-new visitor experience area, bookfair and café.
