"If ten men are carrying a log - nine of them on the little end and one at the heavy end - and you want to help, which end will you lift on?" --William Borden

OM Ships International

One million visitors step on board OM's ships each year as they bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world.

OM's Ship Ministry began in 1970 and since then our ships have visited over 450 different ports in more than 150 countries and territories and welcomed over 42 million visitors on board.

Our goal is to bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world. We do this by supplying vital literature resources, encouraging cross-cultural understanding, training young people for more effective life and service, providing needed relief, and sharing a message of hope in God wherever there is opportunity.

Our current ship, Logos Hope, visits each port for several weeks 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 book fair offers over 5,000 titles, providing many visitors their first-ever opportunity to purchase quality educational and Christian literature.

An international crew and staff of volunteers live and work on the ships. Teams from the ship go into surrounding areas to supply aid and community care. In each port, the ship's crew joins local churches to bring hope and show love to people whatever their circumstance, culture or background.
