M3 is so very honored to have Don Stephens join us as a speaker at the 2019 M3 Conference!

Don founded Mercy Ships in 1978, and today, he continues to inspire a workforce of over 1,000 professional volunteers from over 50 nations with offices in 16 nations.
Mercy Ships operates the Africa Mercy, the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship. The Mercy Ships’ staff is comprised of skilled professional volunteers from around the world including deck officers, engineers, lab technicians, doctors, surgeons, office workers, galley crew, etc. The newest ship in the fleet, Global Mercy, is currently being constructed in China. Mercy Ships follows the 2,000-year-old model of Jesus by providing services to the marginalized poor, free of charge.
