With over 20 vessels across the globe, there are plenty of opportunities for marine crew volunteers to get involved with YWAM Ships. With so many options out there, we thought we'd give you a few reasons why you should consider crewing with YWAM Ships Mazatlan here in Mexico.
You want to use your maritime skills for God
There is place where your passion and your calling collide. If you're a sailor or have spent time in the maritime industry, YWAM Ships could be the place for you. Our vision is to go to the most isolated and least-reached places in the world. These are places we can only access with a ship manned with experienced crew that share our same passion for people and the sea.
You want to maximize your time
For our North American marine crew volunteers, Mexico is so close to home, and the trip from your house to Mazatlan is likely less than a half day's travel. We realize that your time is valuable and sometimes you might not want to spend two days traveling just to get to the ship. YWAM Ships Mazatlan is positioned to allow you to fulfill your dream of using your maritime skills to serve God without having to go so far from home.
You have a heart for Mexico
Maybe you have a heart for the Spanish speaking world, or maybe you've spent a significant amount of time in our waters. Maybe you want to mix it up a bit and learn some Spanish, or maybe you already know some Spanish and you want to dust off the cobwebs. This may be the opportunity that you've been waiting for. YWAM Ships Mazatlan is one of just a few locations in the international YWAM Ships fleet that is bilingual (English & Spanish).
You want to be a part of something new
YWAM Ships Mazatlan is just getting started, so you can join us and pioneer something new. As a ministry in YWAM, we are looking for people that are willing to go to the most isolated and least-reached people of the world. If you have a passion for starting new things and going to new places, we would love to have you aboard. Now is a perfect time to come and be a part of this growing ministry.
I would encourage you to someday visit every one of the vessels in our international YWAM Ships fleet, from the rivers of the Amazon to the coastlines of Papua New Guinea. However, if you're looking for an option that is close to home, easy to get to, with lots of adventure in store, then come and join YWAM Ships Mazatlan aboard the M/V Amazing Grace!
