Strategy of The Finnish Seamen’s Mission
A CHANGING OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
During the strategy period, the Finnish Seamen’s Mission will be preparing for a significant expansion of its work abroad. According to an agreement with the administration of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, the Seamen’s Mission will take over the operational management and coordination of the Church’s work with expatriate Finns from the beginning of 2025.
Potential unforeseen changes will affect the way people move and live on a global scale. Digitalisation enables a more diverse way of meeting expatriate Finns, seafarers and truck drivers. The operating environment is also affected by changes in the profile of expatriate Finns and in seafaring. People’s relationship with the Christian faith and the Church becomes more personal. Motivation for volunteer work becomes more individualised and diversified.
We support people and communities in joy, in sorrow and in the ordinary. The Seamen’s Mission is an open and caring community and partner.
Hospitality is sharing God’s love with everyone.
We stand boldly with the people.
Everyone has the right to a safe meeting.
