How to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world is what New Horizons is all about. Please check out our website at We provide educational opportuinities for at-risk children in Southwest Florida. We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea." The schooner is also used as a teaching tool for the "Call to Adventure" program that mentors young men at sea.

A New Direction

Three weeks before our departure from Florida my dad called me and asked me to download a file from a website that had information about a port on the island of lle a Vache which is located 8 miles offshore of Aux Cayes, Haiti. Being very busy with getting ready for the trip and producing a benefit concert for our ministry in Southwest Florida I didn't take the time to look into the website until late one night when I couldn't sleep and felt compelled to download the 40 pages on lle a Vache. I tucked away the document with my charts and didn't think about it again until I realized that Aux Cayes was no longer an option and we were being led in a new direction. My dad had passed away two weeks earlier but his insight was somehow leading us to where the food really needed to go. We set sail for lle a Vache, Haiti on the morning of December 12, 2010.
