Creating A Network of Friendships
Though we rely on them to transport 90% of our goods, seafarers are often forgotten. By extension, the ministries that serve those hard-working men and women are off the radar screen of many church communities or support groups. NAMMA provides a network of agencies to promote this important work and encourage chaplains, ship visitors, volunteers and administrators in their daily activities.
