The Portsmouth Seafarers Center is focused on making personal contact with the traveling seafarers whose ships are docked at port in our city. We also serve, on an as needed basis for seafarers whose ships are located in any of the over 80 terminals within the Port of Hampton Roads. During these face to face visits we talk to the seafarer about their well-being and any specific personal need. While we are an evangelical organization, we honor the religious preference of the seafarer and will seek religious aid for him from the preferred religious organization. We will provide Bibles in English and in the birth-language of the seafarer on request.
Our main goal is to provide the seafarer emotional and spiritual support during their nearly year long separation from home, loved ones, family, and friends. We endeavor to keep our systems compatible with the latest technology since connecting home via the internet or the cell phone is highly important to the seafarer. The ability to share the gospel story when invited is important to our mission. We enjoy doing so at every opportunity we are given. Currently TTM is directing all of its efforts into the Portsmouth Seafarer Ministries which is its primary operating division.
