About Global Maritime Ministries
Global Maritime Ministries has been meeting the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of seafarers and maritime workers along the Lower Mississippi River for over 55 years. Thousands of ships enter the Mississippi River each year with crews of international seafarers who are far from home. These ships include cargo ships, container ships, and passenger cruise ships. Many of the ships visiting our port stay for only a short time. Since time is limited, it is difficult for the crew to access the internet, make phone calls, send and receive mail, or take care of any personal needs. With two ministry centers, we can easily provide free transportation to and from ships at the Port of New Orleans and the Port of South Louisiana and help them meet their immediate needs. God has given us a unique opportunity to reach the world at our doorstep with the Gospel. As we meet needs and build relationships, many times we are able to share the Gospel message. We have Bibles and Scriptures in over 75 languages to be able to give each seafarer a copy God’s Word in his or her own language.
