Merchant Ship Ministries exists to empower and equip women to provide for themselves and their families, improving the quality of their lives through life and job skills training, economic development and spiritual well-being.
Merchant Ship Ministries will operate with Romans 11:36 in mind at all times:
“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.”
This verse directs WHAT we do, HOW we do it and WHY we do it.
- WHAT: The vision will come “from” God, and we will strive to follow it.
- HOW: The ministry will be “through Him.” We will trust God to provide strength, ability, wisdom, funding, volunteers, clients….everything.
- WHY: “To Him.” For his glory alone.
- To offer HOPE. First through the gospel of Jesus Christ then through increased economic opportunity and improved life skills.
- To offer ENCOURAGEMENT. Lives of women can be hard. Our goal is to walk with them, to help them, and to love them.
- To offer OPPORTUNITY. Merchant Ship Ministries will seek to offer women opportunities to learn new skills or improve and/or market existing ones.
