Pastors and Parents:

Why would you encourage your child or a member of your youth group to participate in this program? Answer--The typical young person who applies to the Sea Hawk program is one who truly loves God. They may not have a lot of money, but they do have a heart to serve Him. In fact, when a young man or woman participates in the Sea Hawks, they are saying, "Let me take what may be the most important time of my life, a directional time that sets me on a path to make the best choices on where and how I will serve and most importantly who I will serve. Let me set everything aside and give you, God, this precious time and say to you, I am the lamb to lay down on the altar. I bring nothing but myself. Let me come without murmuring or accusation, without scar or blemish. I believe that your Word is true so let me give you my first fruit. Help me and direct me so that I will make the right choices in work, marriage, and family. May I continue to put you first, God, so all of the rest of my life may go well. I will become the seed for an increased production in the church. I'll develop a greater honor for my parents. No matter what the task, I'll rise to it and serve gratefully because I'm truly serving God, whether it be traveling the world or completing a simple task."
