Recent statistics show that we’re losing about 1,500 ministers per month. It’s a tough job and one that we too often take for granted. The emotional strain, the spiritual struggles, the weight of an entire congregation on their shoulders… all this takes a toll on ministers health, sanity, marriage and spiritual walk.

But we can do something about that…

This Greek word means to renew, refresh, bloom again.  Anathallo is the foundation of Phil 4:10. It’s only fitting that Emmanuel, a boat built in Greece and donated for the last many  years by a missionary with strong Greek heritage, continue its life  as a servant to the Lord with a strong Greek tradition. Our objective  is to provide rest, rejuvenation, encouragement and mentoring for ministers.

Sailing Vessel Emmanuel is the first in what we hope will be a long  line of options for ministers at rest. In the future, we hope and pray that all sorts of property owners will donate their spaces for weeks or months to this ministry. We also hope to have mentoring opportunities for all sorts of Christian volunteers… elders, pastors, mentors… who would be qualified to sail and want to help minister
to ministers.
