Ministry overview

Every year more than 3200 ships with 60,000 seafarers visit the port of Savannah from every part of the globe..
Our mission is to bring each seafarer Good News and help meet his or her spiritual, emotional, and physical needs – all in the name of Christ.
The Ports of Savannah, and the 78,000 seafarers that call on it each year, present a unique opportunity to share the love and compassion of Jesus. The life of a typical seafarer has many challenges. Levels of depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideations are significantly higher than the population at large and in similar industries (like oil & gas). Months away from home, contracts that are often extended, difficulty in getting wages, and a difficult work environment all contribute to a need for Maritime Bethel Savannah.
