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.

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!

“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.”

“The Seamen’s Church Institute’s Center for Maritime Education serves as an integral strategic
partner in increasing mariners’ proficiency, thereby improving maritime safety and reducing marine
casualties. SCI’s efforts have been instrumental in helping mariners use navigational tools to effectively
and efficiently evaluate and mitigate risk, which is necessary for safe vessel operations.”
CDR Mark Sawyer
Commanding Officer, Marine Safety Unit Paducah

“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.”
Kris Tower
Safety & Environmental Coordinator, Magnolia Marine Towing

“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.
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.”
