OM's ship Logos Hope, may not be able to continue its vital work as part of OM's Christian training and outreach programs around the world unless a chief engineer can be found to oversee the operations of the vessel's systems and maintenance work on machinery.
The ship, which is currently in dry dock in Subic Bay in The Philippines, will be unable to sail after September unless the position is filled. While the job has been filled on a temporary basis over the past few months, OM say they now need a chief engineer who ideally will commit to staying on board for a year. They will also consider shorter term appointments for a minimum of three months and the ship's leadership team is also looking for a further two maintenance engineers to join the two already on board.
Family accommodation is available on board for the chief engineer and can be made available for other engineering officers if required.
OM Ships chief executive Peter Nicoll says those on the ships continue to see evidence of God's hand on the ministry "every day as people’s lives are being touched - both on board and on shore". "We believe that God
has a future for the Ship Ministry and we have already begun to see His provision," he says.
OM purchased the Logos Hope in 2004 following more than 30 years in service as a ferry in Scandanavia.
