Operation Mobilisation is looking for carpenters, welders, plumbers and electricians to volunteer their services and help launch its new ship, Logos Hope, into ministry.
Extra hands are desperately needed to help finish the ship, which is currently in Denmark for a major refit before its launch before the end of the year, says Operation Mobilisation.
Logos Hope will replace the smaller vessel Logos II, which retired in July after more than two decades of bringing the Gospel to the world.
The renovation of the new vessel includes a complete refit of the bridge and the installation of an extra deck that will be used for OM’s public ministry when it docks at various ports around the world.
A permanent book fair on the ship will offer visitors 8,000 different Christian and education titles. In the new purpose-built Visitor Experience area, meanwhile, they will have the chance to meet the crew and learn more about God’s plan for humanity.
Logos Hope, which will be OM Ships’ largest vessel, is scheduled to visit the UK in early 2009.
Crews on board OM Ships’ vessels are made up entirely of Christian volunteers, who help run the ship as it visits ports around the world.
They also complete practical aid projects in ports and host teaching conferences for local Christians onboard.
"Logos Hope's larger capacity is a means to further this ministry on a scale never realised before," said OM.
OM Ships’ vessels – Logos, Logos II and Doulos - have brought the Gospel to port communities in more than 150 countries around the world and welcomed more than 37 million people to their book fairs.
