Live Out Love on board Logos Hope!

STEP (Short Term Exposure Programme) is a unique opportunity for young people to serve God on board 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. 


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


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.


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


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


Price excludes flights, insurance, any visas or vaccinations required and is subject to change according to the exchange rate.
