Leave A Legacy

What is leaving a legacy?

When you choose to leave a legacy by leaving a gift in your will/estate plan to financially support the work of OM Ships, you’re helping to share God's love with the world’s least-reached people groups.

While it may feel as though our individual efforts in the face of such a challenge may have limited impact, your partnership with us can make a real and lasting difference to help continue the work we see God doing through the Ship Ministry.

"Since the earliest days of OM, the very existence of this ministry has often been due in large part to the vision and generosity of donors who have left OM gifts through their estates. Several of those gifts were received at critical moments, when a crucial project would either continue or cease to exist. Such bequests, both large and small, are not only a huge encouragement to those on the frontlines of ministry, but have become a vitally important tool for OM's leadership in developing plans for the future work of OM." - George Verwer, founder of OM

Why donate and how will my gift be used?

‘We give humble thanks to God for all He has done through our four vessels which have reached well over 50 million people. But what’s more on our hearts is a deep dissatisfaction that there is an estimated three billion least-reached people in the world who don’t yet know Him. We want to help turn the tide on this figure with more urgency than ever before; and with this number thought to be growing by 60,000 every single day, it's never too soon to start thinking about how you can leave a legacy for years to come.’ - Seelan Govender, CEO OM Ships

Our desire is to help transform lives and communities by proclaiming and demonstrating Jesus’ love to those we meet. While this may look different in every port we visit, our vision to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among those least reached with the good news remains the same.

Your legacy gift will help us to:

  • Share the Good News through the donations of literature, and in our words and actions.
  • Provide practical aid by helping people at their point of need through water filtration and building projects, eyesight, dental or medical help, and much more.
  • Better equip crewmembers and communities by providing spiritual and educational training and resources.
  • Motivate and mobilise others to live out God’s purpose for their lives through a wide variety of programmes and events.
  • Increase our partnerships with other likeminded organisations and prayer supporters to multiply our effectiveness.
