We want to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached and with our ship, Logos Hope, we’re able to take the gospel to some of these least reached port communities and people groups around the world.

Up to one million people visit Logos Hope each year and, for many, this is a life-changing experience. We want to share knowledge, help and hope with the people we meet on board and on shore as we visit each port for 1-3 weeks.

Together with Logos Hope, you can:

  • EMBARK on a journey of discovery to know God’s heart for the world and where you fit into His plan
  • Be EQUIPPED to be more effective in ministry through work, training and living in an international community
  • Be INSPIRED to make a positive difference in the lives of those you meet and be challenged to live a Christ-like lifestyle  

The crew is made up of about 400 volunteers who love Jesus and want to share the hope of the gospel. Volunteering on Logos Hope, you will be impacted as you live in a unique international community on board and participate in this life-changing adventure.
