Journey Overview

Life on the ships is fast-paced and can be intense. Come with a servant heart, an attitude to learn, and willingness to be flexible and this could be the experience of a lifetime. Many who have been on STEP bear witness to the huge impact it has made on their lives, and to how God has worked in and through them.

Applicants must be 18 or over. The STEP Programme is tailored towards participants aged 18-40.

Price excludes flights, insurance, visa & any possible vaccinations and is subject to change according to the exchange rate.

It is highly recommended you join OM UK's Getting into Gear weekend (GiG) either in the May or October before your placement. This is a weekend of training and orientation held in Shropshire for an additional cost of £75.

As part of our Safeguarding policy, you may require a valid enhanced DBS certificate, which may cost an additional £15.

Please note the ports and dates can change at any time due to many different reasons.

What To Expect

Living and working alongside people from different nations gives you firsthand experience of what it takes to be a cross-cultural Christian worker. It is both challenging and enriching. The days will be filled with practical work in one of the ship's departments (40hrs per week/ 8hrs per day). Outreach Teams are one day per week; you will participate in an assigned ministry experience. It might be an onboard programme or an onshore event.
