Mission to Chinese Seamen makes Christ’s Word known to Chinese seafarers while they are docked in Philadelphia. It was founded by the WPC family of Dr. John and Janice Hill. The ministry of MCS focuses on Far East seafarers, particularly those of Chinese ethnicity because of the restrictions against preaching the gospel in their home country. Seafarers of Chinese heritage also make up a large percentage of the world’s merchant seamen. It is estimated that 80% of the world’s merchant seamen are Asians.
