President's Message

President's Message

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I welcome you to the MAF website, and hope the time you spend here is fruitful. It has been my privilege to serve this wonderful organization since 1991—first as a pilot, and as president since 2007. The people of MAF are bound together by a common purpose: to leverage aviation and other technologies to share the love of Jesus Christ with isolated people and improve their lives. The MAF team—pilots, teachers, mechanics, technicians and others—partners with hundreds of like-minded organizations around the world to achieve this goal.

I hope you’ll stay awhile and explore the new website. You’ll learn more about MAF and the exciting mission to which God has called us. Check out the latest stories and photos from the field. Meet our missionary families. Find out how you can partner with us, and more. For an even closer look at the inner workings of MAF, visit our blog at and join the conversation.

May you be blessed and inspired by your visit here.

In His Grace,
John C. Boyd

Preparing for Slippery Cross-Cultural Experiences
How do you peel a banana? The answer is easy: Just start from the top. However, things get a little more complex when you start talking about which end really is the top. Here in the U.S., the top is the end with the stem. That is how bananas are displayed in grocery stores. That [...] Read the Rest »
