We are the body of Christ.

“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world.” ― Teresa of Avila

Bring hope and healing to the world.

Loving God and Neighbor is central to our mission at Mercy Ships, and we believe each person has a beautifully unique way of doing this. As the Body of Christ, we all have the chance to use what we’re passionate about to serve others and bring hope and healing to the world.

Mercy Ships provides safe, sustainable, skills-based international missions opportunities for your church members to join. There is always a need! From nurses to deckhands, teachers to chefs, accountants to mechanics — it takes all kinds of people with all kinds of skills to keep a hospital ship going strong. Your church can be the Body of Christ, both on board and off!
