Here’s a chance to reach out and make a difference in the lives of seafarers. By partnering with NESM, you will directly impact the men and women who work on the ships we visit. These seafarers bring the world 90% of the worlds goods and products, as well as providing leisure trips for tourists. They work long hours while fulfilling months long contracts. Many of these ships fly under flags of convenience that allow owners to circumvent certain employee rights. They are separated from loved ones and extended family who are depending on their incomes sent home.
Our Mission is to bring to seafarers Hospitality, Encouragement, Advocacy, Reconnection and Teaching. Your gifts help us to provide that H.E.A.R.T to these seafarers.
Current gifts to ministry usually come from current funds. But there is another alternative: a deferred gift, usually a legacy gift through a trust, will or life income agreement. This may be your best opportunity to make a significant gift to one or more ministries you care about. Legacy gifts use accumulated resources to fulfill your charitable dream to a degree which you may not feel able to afford during your lifetime. This is part of your legacy—what you pass down to those who come after you.
The Covenant Trust Company website is the gateway to a wealth of information about financial planning and asset management.

Let’s focus on those values as we work together to manage what God has entrusted to you, use it well, get you to and through retirement and plan your legacy.
