REPORT

2017

FROM OUR CHAIRMAN

Dear Friends,

As I come on board as Chairman of the Seamen’s Church Institute, I am reminded of what a unique organization it is, and how many special people are connected with it. Taking over as SCI Chairman after Mr. Richard du Moulin is no small task. He has served SCI faithfully, energetically, and successfully.

In this role for the last six years, his legacy is that SCI is in a stronger position than ever to fulfill its mission of chaplaincy, advocacy, and education.

As we turn toward the future, we are committed to serving the men and women of the maritime industry in

their day to day lives, and in the extraordinary situations they sometimes face. Through interactions with shipping and towing companies, as well as the mariners themselves, SCI has been able to develop in-depth initiatives, most recently relating to their mental health and well-being. Having served on the SCI board for nearly 20 years,

I take pride in leading this organization as it rises to meet new challenges.

I look forward to representing SCI and being a part of its historic journey.

SHARING YOUR CONNECTION

The Rev. David M. Rider, President & Executive Director

In 2017, we asked you to “share your connection” to the Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI). Our day-to-day work is vital for seafarers and mariners alike, but we can’t do any of it without you—our supporters, donors, partners, and friends. SCI assists mariners on the front-line, and we cannot stand alone.

This Annual Report celebrates the many people who team up with us in different ways. Your connections with us range from giving financial support to attending events, to knitting, to advocating on behalf of mariners, and even remembering mariners in prayer. Each is important and meaningful to us, and yet more so to the seafarers who benefit from your generous spirit. By sharing your connection with SCI, you are strengthening your connection with the maritime world.

In 2017, SCI spearheaded a variety of mariner wellness initiatives. Initially convening a mariner health roundtable with a focus on inland river personnel, we embarked on suicide prevention and intervention initiatives. Through this work, SCI demonstrates our deep commitment to mariner wellbeing:

physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional.

The 2017 SCI Mountain Challenge once again welcomed competitors to the mountains of Maine, testing physical limits and demanding teamwork and dedication in the spirit of the men and women of the maritime. It was a huge success, and many new bonds were formed with individuals and companies who were first—although assuredly not last—timers to the event.

Finally, big changes occurred in the landscape for Port Newark. The Bayonne Bridge was raised to accommodate the new breed of larger container ships, the first of which sailed under it on June 26, 2017 (pictured below). Despite the huge size of these vessels, the crews who sail them remain the same: fellow men and women doing a vital job and coping with everything that life at sea entails. SCI has always been there for them, and we will remain so in the future.

Thank you for partnering with us, sharing your connection with SCI and, through us, standing by the men and women of the maritime.

SCI HOSTS MARINER HEALTH ROUNDTABLE

On May 9, 2017, the Seamen’s Church Institute hosted a roundtable on “Human Factors in Mariner Health and Safety” at the Center for Maritime Education in Paducah, KY. The event was attended by individuals from nine different companies representing brown water, blue water, and the Great Lakes, as well as some interested independent parties. Two experts in Occupational Medicine from Yale Medical School attended, plus a group of SCI staff.

The day was split into two parts, the first dealing with the issue of suicide prevention in the inland river community. On this subject, the group heard from SCI Chaplain Kempton Baldridge, who shared his experience in dealing with the aftermath of mariner suicide. A group discussion of the issue ensued, covering topics such as setting cultural and company norms so that employees feel able to openly discuss thoughts of suicide they may have. Risk factors for suicide that pertain especially

to the inland river community were covered: the difficulties of “transitioning” between boat and home life; stress caused by hearing about problems at home without being able to do anything about them; typical issues of loss, or “losing out” on home life such as missing birthdays, milestones, or other important life events because of being on board the vessel; access to lethal methods in the form of hunting equipment; under-disclosure among men of emotional problems, physical ailments or medications; and reluctance to talk about the issues relating to mental health in wider society.

Dr. Rafael Lefkowitz of Yale reminded the group that changes in culture come from the very top of an organization; the encouragement to disclose problems without fear of reprisal is a message that has to trickle down through the hierarchy, and it takes time for this to happen.

SCI President and Executive Director, David Rider, stated that professionally-delivered Cognitive

Behavioral Therapy is an excellent tool for coping with stressors. SCI then introduced two of their recently-developed resources relating to the issue.

The first, an e-learning module on suicide awareness and prevention, can be taken anywhere, at any time by those who are part of SCI’s e-learning network. SCI developed the module with the collaboration of the Education Development Center (EDC), as well as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), a national charity and think-tank dedicated to the issue.

This module is ideal for providing a brief overview of the problem, offering advice and resources when dealing with employees who are considering suicide. SCI’s unique position as a trusted third party within the maritime community means that they are able to take resources relating to the wider population and customize them to the inland mariner community.

that they are able to take resources relating to the wider population and customize them to

The second major resource offered by SCI is a two-day LivingWorks ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) course. This is an internationally-recognized course which provides participants with the skills to recognize when someone is at risk of suicide, approach the issue with them, and put together an effective plan which will help them to achieve “safety for now.” Three SCI staff members undertook intensive coaching to become officially registered ASIST trainers, and the Institute is offering the course to anyone who wishes to join it but particularly those involved in the maritime community.

During the afternoon session, the discussion turned towards mariner health more generally, with a presentation from Dr. Lefkowitz on mariner wellness as it relates to diet and nutrition. This led into participants sharing their company’s approaches to mariner health, menus, and eating on the boat. Various ideas were presented to encourage mariner wellness, including the development of healthier cookbooks, weight-loss challenges and competitions, coaching on biometrics, exercise equipment, and classes on nutrition.

The conversation extended to other topics related to mariner health, including smoking cessation, fatigue, dehydration, stress management, and exercise.

In the words of one participant, “It was a very helpful day—it was enlightening and interesting to hear what other people in the industry are doing. The open- forum was well-facilitated and it was extremely useful to hear from people in the medical profession as well as those in the industry”.

SCI looks forward to working together to ensure a better quality of life for mariners on the inland waterways, and further afield.

SUSTAINING SPONSOR

Orrin Ingram is the CEO of Ingram Barge Company, a long-time supporter of SCI and one of our Sustaining Sponsors. Ingram Barge Company has been an SCI training partner at our Center for Maritime Education in Paducah since the facility opened in 1997.

Two of SCI’s mission areas are particularly important for Ingram. We got involved with SCI primarily because of their maritime education program. We run our captains, pilots, engineers, and steersmen through CME-Paducah so they can work on the simulators, refresh the rules of the road, and hone their skills. It’s really a fine-tuning for how they work out on the river.

Second, we’re a family business and we try to treat people as much as possible like part of the family. That’s why SCI’s river ministry is something that’s been of great value to us. When one of our people has an issue at home or on the boat, it’s great to know that an SCI Chaplain can visit them and provide care and a listening ear. They often do it better that we can ourselves!

At Ingram, the extra things we can do for our associates through SCI are really important. SCI is unique in that it’s a non-profit that can undertake for our training needs, but its Ministry on the River is extra value added that we were not expecting initially. It’s a full service capability; not only training, but also supporting our people personally too. A normal “for-profit” company couldn’t fulfill the ministry aspect, and a regular not-for-profit couldn’t fulfill the training component. SCI is special.

THE 2017 SCI MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE:

A TEST OF ENDURANCE, INSPIRED BY MARINERS

September 2017 saw 150 participants representing 44 companies from the maritime industry compete against each other in the mountains of western Maine to raise funds for the Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI). The third biennial SCI Mountain Challenge provided participants with the opportunity to push their physical limits in support of mariners who face extreme conditions every day to keep our modern way of life afloat. Course times, plus philanthropy dollars raised, contributed to each team’s overall final ranking and awards.

But why a mountain race? SCI believes it’s symbolic. Each working day, mariners push themselves in a race against time and nature to deliver the world’s commerce. Taking place on land and water, the SCI Mountain Challenge acknowledges many of the hardships mariners confront on a daily basis: the elements (facing northern New England’s notoriously unpredictable weather), isolation (teams work self- sufficiently on the mountain and water race courses) and physically demanding work (participants ascend over 3,000 feet each day).

Cargill was the Lead Event Sponsor for the 2017 SCI Mountain Challenge, as well as the Peak Challenge Sponsor (award for the fastest team to hike between two peaks). Other sponsors included TOTE, who sponsored the Geo-Cache Challenge; McAllister Towing, who sponsored the Cairn-Building Challenge; Liberian Registry, who sponsored the Event Bags; Teekay Shipping, who sponsored the Fueling Station; and Scorpio Bulkers and Scorpio Tankers, who sponsored the Finish Line Celebration.

Jennifer Koenig, SCI’s Director of Development, said, “We are grateful for the overwhelming support

for this event. The competitors gave 100% on the mountain course as well as the

Congratulations go to team Baere Force 1 from Core Petroleum and Baere Maritime, 2017’s overall winners, whose combined Varsity course time plus fundraising total put them in first place. For Junior Varsity, overall first place went to The Schulte Summiteers from Bernhard Schulte. Fastest course completion for Varsity went to Challenge newcomers Green Peak Partners. On the Junior Varsity course, team Screaming Eagles from American Bureau of Shipping came in fastest.

2017 SCI MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE COMPETITOR

Del Bobish is Senior Terminal Manager for Port Newark Container Terminal and has worked in the industry for 25 years. He was a first-time competitor in the SCI Mountain Challenge in September 2017, and he and his PNCT teammates, Nick Addison and Dan Lynch, took home second place in the Top Overall (Course Completion + Philanthropy)—Junior Varsity category.

When I first heard about the SCI Mountain Challenge, I thought it looked like a lot of fun and would provide motivation for me to push myself and commit to getting into shape! When I realized the Philanthropy Challenge was part of the event, I thought it was great that I could raise money for a good cause at the same time. I think I was so successful in the philanthropy challenge because after 25 years in the industry my colleagues and business associates have turned into friends. SCI has a great reputation as a sincere charity that does excellent work, so when I approached my friends, they supported me generously because they were also giving to SCI. Not only did I help SCI but I was rewarded in so many other ways. Crossing the finish line gave me a great sense of accomplishment, kept me working out, and turned two longtime colleagues into real buddies.

I believe SCI is a worthwhile cause, and I see their vans picking up seafarers all the time in Port Newark. I attended

a military academy and also have a background in trucking, so I recognize that being a seafarer is a lonely profession and a tough one. SCI is the friendly face that meets seafarers, remembers them and helps them in so many way— especially connecting with home.

CENTER FOR SEAFARERS’ RIGHTS INTERN REPORT

by Julianne Weidmann

I am a student at Tulane University School of Law, going into the second year of my law degree. In summer 2017, I had the privilege of serving as the Summer Legal Intern for the Seamen’s Church Institute’s (SCI) Center for Seafarers’ Rights (CSR), under the guidance of Director, Douglas B. Stevenson, Esq. Through my work at SCI, I became immersed in the maritime community, making connections at industry events and outings, and interacting with the seafarers who are the backbone of international shipping, and therefore global and national economies.

At first glance, a visitor passing by Port Newark, NJ might be taken aback by the stacks of containers, the abundance of trucks on the roads, and the giant industrial machines throughout the port area. Yet, working in the port has given me a greater appreciation for the people behind this industry.

This summer, my main project was to compile and analyze the SCI’s annual Shore Leave Report for 2017. I also received and drafted responses to legal complaints by seafarers. Furthermore, I researched and composed a legal guide for chaplains on how to handle complaints of harassment and bullying from seafarers.

Some other highlights included assisting with SCI’s 2017 Silver Bell Awards Dinner and Maritime Forum, attending the Marine Money ship finance conference, visiting the Liberian Registry, spending two days with the United States Coast Guard, and visiting ships in Port Newark. Through all these events and experiences, I met many people from several fields within the maritime industry, learning about topics such as: how P&I clubs and health professionals interact to protect seafarers; efforts to defend against cyber attacks in the shipping industry; the important role the USCG plays in protecting the environment

and seafarers; and the types of projects with which law firms become involved in the maritime world.

However, the most important part of my summer was the day-to-day work with Director Doug Stevenson. Each day brought fresh news of the challenges faced by seafarers, especially regarding wage issues, repatriation, maintenance and cure complaints (relating to a seafarer’s right to medical and living expenses from his employer for any injury arising during the course of his employment.) Director Stevenson fostered my passion for advocacy, encouraging me to research legislation connected to maritime law and seafarers’ rights, delve into case law relating to seafarers’ legal complaints, and better communicate with international seafarers. This experience has shown me what I am truly driven by:

service to my client and passion for advocacy. I will continue to cultivate these passions upon my return to Tulane.

CHRISTIAN MOLLITOR

ROPER LEGACY SOCIETY MEMBER

Christian Mollitor is the Managing Director of Decatur Marine Audit & Survey. He first got to know SCI through his previous position with the Liberian Registry. Christian is an alumnus of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, and spent three years at sea before establishing his career on land. He recently included SCI in his estate plans.

Why do you think giving to SCI matters?

SCI does a lot of excellent work for seafarers. Having previously been a mariner myself I know it’s particularly important for organizations like SCI to provide support for them, especially when they’re far away from home and haven’t seen their families in a long time. Also, if they’re part of a religious community, they often haven’t had a chance to connect with that group, so those spiritual services are essential too. SCI’s role in this regard, its legal advocacy, and the maritime training it provides for the inland marine industry adds up to a lot of very valuable and significant work.

What prompted you to include SCI in your estate plans?

I have built a relationship with SCI over the last 5 years by going to events like the Silver Bell Awards Dinner and Mountain Challenge. Now, with Decatur Marine, I’m learning about what SCI is doing in Paducah and last year I attended the River Bell Awards for the first time. I’ve been able to see SCI in action throughout my involvement with them, which is one of the main reasons why I extended my giving from corporate and personal gifts to also being a legacy donor and including SCI in my estate plans. Recently, I was writing my trust and a portion of that is set aside for non-profits and charities, so of course SCI was at the top of the list!

SCI HOLDS FIRST APPLIED SUICIDE INTERVENTION SKILLS TRAINING WORKSHOP

On July 13–14, 2017, the Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI) ran a two-day Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop for shore-side personnel in the inland river industry. The workshop took place in SCI’s Center for Maritime Education, Paducah, KY, and was very well-received by all who attended.

The ASIST course teaches the necessary attitudes, knowledge, and skills to recognize persons at risk, and to undertake appropriate management or referral of a person who is having thoughts of suicide. This course provides a natural extension of the mariner health roundtable hosted by SCI in May for companies representing the inland river industry.

Suicide remains a concern among towing operators because of many recent fatal cases and

the challenging work/life rhythms of extended deployment to highly structured boat life, followed by extended return home to less structured family life. Mariners may view themselves as ruggedly self- sufficient and defer seeking professional medical and mental health support when they need it.

Some 5% of Americans have thoughts of suicide each year, and suicide behaviors are far more common than most people think. Almost everyone will come into contact with suicide behaviors in some significant way during their life. “Many people have been trained to administer physical first aid such as CPR,” noted the Rev. David M. Rider (President and Executive Director of SCI), “but very few know about emergency first aid for preventing suicide.”

The workshop, developed by a company called LivingWorks Education, was presented by the Rev. David Rider and Dr. Naomi Walker (Director of Communications for SCI), both accredited ASIST trainers. It dealt directly with attitudes about suicide prevention and also taught participants to recognize people who might be at risk. According to Naomi Walker, major risk indicators include sudden changes in behavior or personality, feelings of hopelessness or depression, previous suicide attempts, and most importantly, statements expressing a desire or intention to die. One of the most important skills to have, she emphasized, is the ability to ask directly about suicide, thereby opening honest discussion of the topic.

One participant said of the course, “This exceeded my expectations. While I’ve been professionally trained before, here I learned new skills and processes that were simpler and more useful.” Another commented, “This was an excellent workshop—I feel I’m leaving with a whole new set of skills that will benefit all facets of my life.”

A full list of course times, fees, and dates offered by SCI can be found at seamenschurch.org/ASIST. SCI welcomes workshop participants from the river maritime community, churches, social welfare organizations, and the general public over age 16.

SUPPORTING PARISH

Based in New York city, L’Église Française du Saint-Esprit, also known as the “French church” has supported SCI for over 30 years. The current rector is the Rev. Nigel Massey.

Previously there was a time when members of our church were also members of SCI’s board.

For many years, our Senior Warden was someone who had served in the merchant marine, giving us an insight into the need for the services SCI provides. Saint-Esprit makes annual donations to several charitable organizations covering several different areas of mission, both domestic and international. Our church comprises many members who live far away from their home country, and many who are the descendants of refugees. SCI’s mission appeals to us because it reaches out to those who are isolated through spending many months away from their family while at sea. This year, we were particularly touched by the initiative for suicide prevention and the educational program that SCI launched in this area. We hope to continue this fruitful engagement with the mission of SCI and look forward to paying a visit to the International Seafarers’ Center in Port Newark!

“Society has seen an increase in suicide over recent years among young people, military veterans, and other groups. Our tow-boaters are not immune to this trend. Like any treatable illness, I believe it is critical to focus on what we can do as individuals and organizations to help address this growing concern:

we can make a difference.

SCI’s ASIST training was excellent. The two-day course provides tremendous insight into how we can respond to signs that someone is struggling. I now feel very confident in my ability to help someone who needs support but is afraid or unwilling to ask for it. We learned about the importance of working through immediate issues to achieve ‘safety for now,’ and supporting the person at risk as they seek professional help. The training is like CPR for mental well-being, and is hugely important as we address the issue of suicide.”

PORT NEWARK BECOMES BIG SHIP READY

In the 1930s, the New York harbor bustled with traffic, and residents living in the region were starting to move outward from the city. The Bayonne Bridge was built as a link between Staten Island and Bayonne, replacing a ferry service between the two states. The bridge was built with 151 ft. air clearance, which for the next 80 years left plenty of room to accommodate ships sailing into the still-growing Newark Bay.

Today, Port Newark and Port Elizabeth form a critical transportation hub, and rank third in North

America in terms of import/export activity. The maritime industry brings us 90% of everything we consume—electronic devices, cars, paper, grain, salt, orange juice, and Belgian blocks to name just a few. Cargo vessels arriving into Port Newark currently range in size from being able to carry 5,000 TEUs (Twenty Foot Equivalent Units—the average container) to 8,000 TEUs. Now, with the expanded Panama Canal, so-called “New Panamax” ships carrying up to 14,500 TEUs, and ULCVs (Ultra Large Container Vessels) carrying

in excess of 14,500 TEUs have begun transiting the world’s oceans.

The Bayonne Bridge, spanning from Staten Island, NY to Bayonne, NJ, previously inhibited the entry of these larger ships to Port Newark/Port Elizabeth. This had a significant impact on the Port’s economic potential. Therefore, it was decided to raise the roadbed of the Bayonne Bridge to ensure that the Port of New York and New Jersey was “Big Ship Ready.” The $1.6 billion plan was completed in

The first Neo-Panamax ship ever to sail under the newly-raised Bayonne Bridge arrived at Port Newark- Elizabeth Marine Terminal on June 26, 2017. The bridge was raised specifically to accommodate these new giant vessels, and the Zim Antwerp was the first to arrive (see photo on page 7).

On September 7, 2017, the largest vessel ever to visit the East Coast arrived under the newly- raised Bayonne Bridge, the brand new 14,400 TEU container ship CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt. A team from SCI visited the ship soon after it berthed, enjoying a tour and talking with the crew. As the age of the “New Panamax” arrives, SCI looks towards the future while drawing on a history of long-term commitment to seafarers’ wellbeing.

Jack Noonan, President of Binnacle Maritime LLC, is a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point. He has been involved with SCI for a number of years, and joined the Board of Trustees in 2017.

My first experience with the Seamen’s Church Institute was in August 1980 when I stayed at the SCI NYC residence while taking my USCG 2nd Mate’s license exam. I returned in 1983 to stay there during my Chief Mate’s license exam. Over the past ten years, as CEO of Chembulk Tankers, I sponsored tables at the annual Silver Bell Awards Dinner, which I viewed as an excellent client appreciation event. However, I have since come to realize that SCI meant more to me than those experiences. SCI’s mission of concern for the welfare of the seafarer, via its maritime education and training programs and its chaplaincy, brought me back to my own roots as a seafarer. More importantly, my support for SCI is driven by my belief that giving back is not only an obligation but it is also a privilege. I say privilege because the term “giving back” connotes that one received something in the first place and is in a position to give back. I am proud to be an SCI Trustee and feel honored to support its mission.

MARINER THANK YOUS

CHRISTMAS AT SEA

Dear Seamen’s Church Institute

Thank you so much for the Christmas gifts the crew of our good vessel received during our stay in Port Newark from December 13th–15th, 2017.

The ship Columbine Maersk is a Danish-flagged container vessel with crew from Denmark, India, Thailand, the Philippines, Ukraine, England, and China. At the moment we are in the Mediterranean Sea heading to the Far East!

Thank you again and best regards Ingolf Zeuch Chief Engineer Columbine Maersk

CHRISTMAS ON THE RIVER

From the crew of the tug Weddell Sea, thanks to all at SCI. The knitted caps and other items were a welcome treat! Best wishes for this holiday season.

Dear Christmas on the River,

Thank you for the winter care package that you sent to our boat. I went downstairs into the deck locker and the whole crew was putting on the scarves you sent, just in time for the coldest day of the year thus far. We all appreciate the time and care put into those scarves. Also, please pass on a “Thank you” to Troop 54284 out of Western Pennsylvania for the Christmas cards. We’ll be thinking of them when we purchase our Girl Scout cookies in the upcoming year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the crew of the David L. Fields!

Sincerely, Captain Jeff Stoneking and Crew of the David L. Fields

Happy New Year from the crew of the David L. Fields ! Sincerely, Captain Jeff Stoneking

“We have been using the SCI e-learning program for almost a year and a half now, and the system is very straightforward and user-friendly. The courses are easy to follow and the information is pertinent to mariners on the river. I would recommend the SCI program to anyone—two thumbs up.”

“Doing a feasibility study with SCI meant that we were able to obtain a reduction in the navigation clearance width for our bridge from the U.S. Coast Guard. This reduction increased the number of feasible bridge types we could consider, thereby improving our opportunities for finding the lowest- cost river crossing.“Doing a feasibility study

Everything went smoothly during the SCI study, and we were able to consider the best option for our company. We were very happy with the outcome, and I would certainly recommend SCI to other companies considering feasibility studies for similar projects.”

CENTER FOR SEAFARERS’ RIGHTS: CASE STUDY

by Douglas B. Stevenson, Esq.

Just before Christmas 2017, the Rev. Judith Altree, port chaplain in the Ontario ports of Toronto, Hamilton, and Oshawa asked my help in repatriating a Filipino seafarer whose ship was tentatively scheduled to arrive in Toronto between December 21–23. The seafarer had completed his contract plus one month’s extension in November, and he wanted to go home to be with his family, so he asked the ship’s master

to be repatriated when the ship arrived in Toronto. He was informed that no relief was available, and he would not be repatriated until the ship returned to Europe.

After discussing the case with Chaplain Judith, we decided that the Center for Seafarers’ Rights (CSR) would contact the seafarer and obtain his authorization to intervene with the shipowner on his behalf, which we did. The result of our interventions

was that the seafarer was repatriated from the vessel at its first port call in Canada on December 27.

Unfortunately, this case is not unusual. A small number of ship operators attempt to economize on crew replacement and repatriation expenses by extending seafarers’ contract beyond their expiration dates against the seafarers’ wishes. CSR supports seafarers by helping them enforce their legal rights contained in their employment contracts.
