SCI Goes West

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

As of July 1, the Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI) has assumed management of the International Maritime Center in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Last year, the Bay Area Seafarers’ Services (BASS) approached SCI about adding a West Coast resource to the services SCI provides to the world’s mariners. The Executive Committee of SCI’s Board of Trustees will manage the International Maritime Center as it is integrated into the framework of the Institute during this transitional year. Two new SCI employees will operate from the Center, serving all of the commercial ports in the Bay Area—a Senior Chaplain and a Community Relations Coordinator. Each brings knowledge and experience of the Port and the International Maritime Center. SCI also hopes to foster the Center’s ecumenical spirit, entering into a covenant partnership with other denominations’ existing ministries to seafarers operating out of the International Maritime Center.
