The Privilege of Daily Service

Over the years, many men and women, skilled and unskilled, old and young, from every walk of life, have joined our short-term and long-term staff. If you are interested in serving with us as part of our long-term core crew or in serving short-term or (if you are local to Lake Charles, Louisiana) to help daily, Friend Ships is happy to have you. Each of these ways of serving is a vital part of helping the Friend Ships team show God’s love to a hurting world.

We are currently accepting applications for long-term and short-term volunteers. We have positions available for engineers, electricians, electronic technicians, mechanics, pipefitters, housekeepers, office workers, ship’s mates, deckhands, welders, plumbers, drivers, carpenters, cooks, groundskeepers, gardeners, and many others.
