Your Support Makes a Difference

We could not do this significant ministry without the support of churches, congregations, the Synod, and our devoted supporter. We seek to help provide humanitarian aid to the sailors, helping them with basic needs such as cell phones, clothing, and transportation, in addition to connecting sailors from all over the globe with the love of Jesus Christ. 

We are in need of your support today!

You can donate online or by mail.

Checks can be sent to Lutheran Maritime Ministry at 120 S. Pico Avenue, Long beach, CA 90802.

Other Ways to Support

In addition to generous benevolence giving, we also need donations of the following items to provide kits for arriving sailors:

Bibles, Bible Studies, CDs, DVDs, Vehicle Maintenance & Gas Cards, Phone and Internet Cards, Sea Watch Caps, or even a Chaplain Salary!

Christmas Gift Boxes: White Socks, Shaving Kit items: Packaged razors, Shaving cream; Deodorant, Combs, Brushes, Finger nail clippers, Tooth paste, Tooth brushes, Note paper, envelopes, pens and pencils, Gum and Hard Candy; but nothing that leaks, spills and melts.
