Church Engagement


The Sending Church

We go because He came to us. It’s the model of Jesus.

As a church, you pray for workers and support others, but sometimes God calls one from your midst to answer the prayer. Mercy Ships provides safe, skills-based, international missions opportunities for your church members. From nurses to deckhands, teachers to chefs, accountants to mechanics – it takes all kinds, with all skills to keep a hospital ship going strong.

Your church can help us bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor.


Prayer has always been integral to Mercy Ships. Join others around the world to uphold Mercy Ships in prayer.


A variety of skills are needed onboard the world’s largest NGO hospital ship. Learn More by clicking here.


Support your church member who’s serving with us, or donate a one-time or monthly gift to support our mission.


We were never meant to stay in the pew. Download Mercy Ships resources to supplement your efforts to keep the #MissionsMomentum going in your church.

We have many resources available for your use: bulletin inserts, posters, videos, Mercy Ships cards, and more. Contact us for more options and resources, or if you would like a Mercy Ships representative to speak at your church or special event.

With Mercy Ships the connection between faith and work is easy to see. Our volunteers use their professional skills to bring hope and healing to Africa.

“As a PICU nurse onboard, I get to be a part of rebuilding broken hearts with love and laughter and the light of Jesus. This is why I volunteer. “

“I feel I’m part of something really good, and being a deck officer onboard is a way I can use the skills I have to  help people. I don’t often have the opportunity to be of service in the way that I am on Mercy Ships.”

Eric Baliantz

Second Officer

“The thought that our collective roles could service the needs of others urges a spark of joy — because loving is serving, and serving brings inner satisfaction and strength.”
