Live Out Love on board the Logos Hope!

STEP (Short Term Exposure Programme) is a unique opportunity for young people to serve God on board the Logos Hope ship for 3 months.

Life on the ships is fast-paced and can be intense. Come with a servant heart, an attitude to learn, a willingness to be flexible and this could be the experience of a lifetime. Many who have been on STEP bear witness to the huge impact it has made on their lives, and to how God has worked in and through them.

Ministry Details

Living and working alongside people from different nations gives you first hand experience of what it takes to be a cross-cultural Christian worker. It is both challenging and enriching. The days will be filled with practical work in one of the ship's departments (40 hours per week/ 8 hours per day). Outreach Teams are one day per week; you will participate in an assigned ministry experience. It might be an on board programme or an onshore event.

Participant Profile

Participants should be in good health, flexible and be willing to learn. You must possess a passport that is still valid for at least 6 months at the leaving date from Logos Hope. You must be able to agree to abide by all ships policies. You must also be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Accommodation

On board the ship, in a 10-berth cabin where there is minimal storage and communal bathrooms.

Food

Nutritious meals are served in our dining room on board three times per day. The menu is set by our Executive Chef and is often determined by the food available. Unfortunately, we cannot cater to specific eating habit or diets (vegetarian, gluten free, low cholesterol, low carb, etc.), but try to offer a variety of options at each meal.

Travel

You must arrange your own travel to and from the ship and visa if required. Adequate travel and health insurance cover is required and your insurance must cover COVID-19 treatment and repatriation if needed.

You will be informed of the ports as soon as possible if they have not yet been confirmed. This website gives an idea of where future ports could be but they can change at any time. 

Health

You must be in excellent health and able to cope with hard physical work (sometimes in hot humid climates).

Visa

We'll advise on application whether you will need a visa.

Notes

Price is subject to change according to the exchange rate.

Applicants must be 18 or over. This placement is tailored towards participants aged 18-40.

We highly recommend you join OM UK’s Getting into Gear weekend (GiG) which is held every May and October. This is a weekend of training and orientation which will be conducted in Shropshire and will cost an additional £75.

As part of our safeguarding policy, you may require a valid enhanced DBS certificate which may cost an additional £15. 

Please note the ports and dates can change at any time due to many different reasons.
