Introduction to Mercy Ships

allisonholiskiallisonholiski International Support CenterPosts: 52 admin

Introduction to Mercy Ships (IMS) is a weekend-long program held in the Netherlands designed to facilitate the entry of potential staff into Mercy Ships, and is open to singles and couples wishing to learn more about Mercy Ships. Our goal is to help potential crew become as informed in their decision-making process as possible. The program includes topics such as the Mercy Ships culture, organization, training requirements, personal fundraising, Mercy Ships vision, core values and mission, and much more. There will also be personal time to meet on a one-to-one basis about Mercy Ships opportunities and to answer personal questions.

IMS will be conducted onboard the passenger ship, the m/v Siloam. Participants will have an exciting glimpse of living on board a ship with a small living space and a strong sense of “community living” — all while experiencing some sailing over the weekend. The place of boarding is Kampen (in the Netherlands), which can easily be reached via train.
