new orleans global maritime ministries
September 13-16, 2019
Vision: This team will interact with seafarers and do personal evangelism and discipleship, leading in worship services and discipleship groups of crew from cargo and cruise ships.
Description: A long-term successful ministry to International Cruise & Cargo Staff has been developed through Global Maritime Ministries under the direction of Philip Vandercook. Our own Leonard & Ann Davis are CBC missionaries working with Philip in the New Orleans Unit. They work diligently to build relationships in the port and on the cruise and cargo ships. Just about every day the crews of the ships get off at the port to do shopping and take a break. Global Maritime (GM) provides transportation with their bus to take them to Wal-Mart and to the GM center where they can use the phones, computers, etc. to contact their families around the world. The staff includes many different ethnic groups from around the world so the possibilities are tremendous in reaching people. The GM center has Bibles, Christian literature, phone cards, computers, and kitchen facilities with table game area, a chapel and lounge.
They need groups to build relationships by interacting with seafarers. You may have the opportunity to do personal evangelism and discipleship. You could possibly lead worship services, Bible studies with crew from cargo and cruise ships, bake desserts, help deliver/sort the seafarer’s packages, prayer walk, or clean up the center after serving that day. You will be housed on site at the GM center.

Loving Our Neighbors & Loving God
September 26 - October , 2019
Overview: New York City is truly a representation of the nations of the world. Of the 8.5 million residents, nearly 2 million are Jewish making it the largest community of its’ kind outside of Israel. We will be serving with those who have a desire to share the hope found in Jesus by loving neighbors in tangible ways. Our partners host an informal gospel-centered gathering where people can make friends, explore faith and become family. When friends come to serve, they can expect to get an understanding of beliefs and culture from our knowledgeable friends. You will learn how to pray for, interact with and serve our neighbors in culturally appropriate ways. We have opportunities for serving by doing neighborhood clean-up, working a soup kitchen shift, and work projects for our neighbors.
Logistics: Travel to NYC is by air to LaGuardia, then by bus and subway. You can walk up to 3 miles a day so be in shape. Food will be in fast food places as other restaurants can be prohibitive due to time. All inner-city travel will be on foot or by subway.
Team Size: 4-6 people
Price: $1,300 Includes airline, on the field housing, on the field land travel, and travel insurance. Does not include meals. Application plus 10% deposit required before team airline reservations can be made.
