New England Seafarers Mission began in the 1880s with the arrival of the Swedish Covenant Church during the great Scandanavian immigration to the US. We began with a single pastor who worked the waterfront, visiting primarily crews from the many Swedish ships calling in Boston. Over the years, that ministry grew to include people from all over the world.

Opening Day at the Mission

Today will be a busy day! I'm preaching at Cornerstone Covenant Church in Boston and looking forward to sharing about the Mission with our sisters and brothers there. Then heading over to Black Falcon Cruise Terminal to join our staff who are already there waiting for the first cruise ship of the 2014 season - the Brilliance of the Sea. If you've never seen the seafarers center in action, please come by and visit. We may even put you to work. Keep NESM in your prayers for this 2014 season, that our ministry to the seafarers would be fruitful.

Typhoon Haiyan

 In the last few days we have heard news from the Philippines of the overwhelming tragedy of Typhoon Haiyan. Seafarers from the Philippines make up over 20% of the work force at sea. That means there a thousands of Filipino seafarers waiting to hear if their family and friends are alright. These men and women are forced to endure agonizing hours and days until they hear some kind of news, be it good, orprayerfully not, bad. Please keep these men and women from the Philippines in your prayers. Already our worldwide partners in industry, labor, ICMA (International Christian Maritime Association) and ISWAN (International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network) are working on international cooperation to assist in relief efforts after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.  For an overview of some of those international efforts please read this press release from ISWAN.

Mission Months

Looking for Mission Oppurtunities?

We have a very active Cruise Mission Ministry schedule for September and October. Look at our calendar and you'll see ships coming into Boston nearly every day of the week for the next two months. We have most of the weekend days set for help with churches coming in, but weekdays are a particular (and annual) need. You don't need to come up with a large group from your church or organization. For these ships we need individuals or couples or even a small group to help us out. Even one person would be a blessing to a seafarer.

1Pe 4:10 NIV - Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. - So, here's an unusual request. I'm looking for someone adept at Python programming who would be willing to volunteer their expertise. Why?
