    The Charleston Port and Seafarers’ Society exists for the purpose of welcoming and serving the needs of those men and women who make their livelihood in the port or at sea, without regard for nationality, race, ethnicity, politics, or religion.

    Each year, more than 65,000 seafarers arrive on hundreds of vessels to the Charleston Port. Most crews consist of persons from diverse third-world countries and from many cultures. Three to four nationalities are common for one vessel, with a crew of around 25 seafarers. Many are lonely, away from home and their families for up to a year at a time. The need and opportunity for ministry to these brothers and sisters is tremendous.

    On an average the Seafarer volunteers serve some 20,000 officers & crew members on over 800 ships. The ministry centers provide at least 1700 transportation trips to help crew with personal needs and our volunteers log over 8,000 hours of service to these men and women each year.

    • Tuesday, November 19, 2019
