                  Welcome to our website!

We are honored that you are visiting our site. The Seafarers Ministry of the Golden Gate ministers to ALL that seek our services. Come in and browse.

Our mission's heritage dates back to 1946 when Rev. Thorbjorn Olsen and his wife Tuppi came to San Francisco to establish the Scandinavian Seamen's Mission. Our religious heritage is rooted in the American Baptist Church.
We are an international, interdenominational, and completely autonomous ecumenical ministry. More importantly, we wish to extend our reach to seafarers working on ships who come into the San Francisco Bay Area and also to the world's shipping companies. Our services are for seafarers of every race, religion and national origin. All "farers," whether by sea, land, or air, can find solice through our Ministry's facilities and services.

This web site exists in order for us to contact people we may never have been able to reach before.

Please use this site to access the information you need about the Seafarers Ministry of the Golden Gate and as a resource for broadening your faith and expanding your view of the world. We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have.
