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.
Every member of the Friend Ships team is an unpaid volunteer.
Serving with Friend Ships is free of charge.
Share your passion for helping others around the world.
