Speaker: Gary Roosma
Organization: Ministry to Seafarers
Seafarers from around the world pass through the Port of Vancouver daily. They spend weeks at a time at sea and months away from their families and homelands, facing loneliness, exhausting work schedules, and rough seas in order to deliver the goods we consume. Come learn how we can care for them.
Gary serves as chaplain to seafarers and is an ordained minister in the Christian Reformed Church. He previously served as a missionary with OMF International until 2017 when he joined the Ministry to Seafarers, which works in partnership with the Anglican Mission to Seafarers.
Concentration: Going Global - Cross Cultural Mission
