About

Harbor 58 is a Great Commission community and a partner ministry of YWAM Ships, serving the most isolated people groups with the message and hope of Jesus Christ. This is practically accomplished through medical/mercy ministries, community development, Bible distribution and Discipleship Training Schools (DTS). Over the next few years we will be laying the foundations for longterm ministry in the Oceania region of the world. This will include building a partnership team, assembling a crew and other YWAM volunteers to include medical professionals, raise funding for an appropriate ship (in the 150' - 200' range) or small flotilla of ships (each under 100')  followed by initial outreaches from Port YWAM in Kona, HI.
