Introduction to Mercy Ships weekend
To learn more about Mercy Ships and life aboard the ship, the Mercy Ships Introductory Course (IMS) offers a 3-day program over a long weekend, on a barge in the Netherlands.
Topics include an introduction to Mercy Ships, transitioning, questions about community life, fundraising tips and an interview. All courses are given in English. If you would like to receive further information on the IMS course, or to register, do not hesitate to contact us!
The next IMS weekend will take place October or November 2022.
