About us

Seelan Govender, CEO, OM Ships International

"This is a position I step into in faith and obedience, trusting in the Lord’s leading. I believe that OM Ships exists to show that Jesus makes the difference in all of our lives. We take the message of the gospel to some of the least-reached people and places, in order to fulfil what is written in Revelation chapter 7; that one day there will be a great multitude representing all nations, tribes and people, standing before the throne of heaven.

OM Ships is a family of dedicated, selfless people whom God has called to offer their abilities and their heart. We depend humbly upon our global support base of faithful partners, whose prayers and finance make our service possible. I am excited about pressing forward together to increase the Ship Ministry’s impact around the world."

Seelan Govender
CEO, OM Ships International

OM Ships International is the organisation behind Logos Hope. The Ship Ministry began in 1970 as part of the global Christian training and outreach movement, OM International. Since then OM's ships have visited over 480 different ports in more than 150 countries and territories and welcomed over 47 million visitors on board.

Our goal is to share knowledge, help and hope. We do this by supplying vital literature resources, encouraging cross-cultural understanding, training young people for more effective life and service, providing needed relief, and sharing a message of hope in God wherever there is opportunity.

The current ship, Logos Hope, visits each port for several weeks each and open the gangways to hundreds and sometimes thousands of visitors each day. On average, around one million visitors have been welcomed on board every year! The floating book fair offers over 5,000 titles, providing many visitors their first-ever opportunity to purchase quality educational and Christian literature.

An international crew and staff of volunteers live and work on the ships. Teams from the ship go into surrounding areas to supply aid and community care. In each port, the ship's crew joins local churches to bring hope and show love to people whatever their circumstance, culture or background.
