Imagine: Mission trips on board a huge ship! No prior ship experience necessary!
OM Ships International is the organization behind the ships Doulos and Logos Hope. The Ships Ministry began in 1970 as part of the global Christian training and outreach movement, OM International. Since then OM’s ships have visited over 500 different ports in over 150 countries and territories and welcomed 38 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.
The ships visit each port for several weeks each and open the gangways to hundreds and sometimes thousands of visitors each day. On average, over one million visitors have been welcomed onboard every year! The floating book fairs offer over 7,000 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.

Operation Mobilization has officially launched their newest and largest ship Logos Hope!
Grand celebrations were held in London on board the ship! Christian volunteers of any age are needed to work on the ship short term and long term. No prior experience necessary! What a great short term mission trip or long term mission trip opportunity!
“God puts the world in your hands. Don’t let it fall down” was an echoing message in the Emmanuel Centre, London, at the end of the Saturday evening event for the Logos Hope London Launch. Pastor Nims Obunge (Nigeria) challenged people to pray for the world and drove the point home through passing a huge, inflated globe around the audience. OM Founder George Verwer shared about seven transformational words and finished with the most important one for him – mercy. As the evening came to an end, a Parade of Nations shared some of the cultures of the ship and in prayer some leaders commissioned the crew as it sails to the Caribbean.
