Adam Lewis

Adam Lewis was born in Nyankunde, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo-DRC) to Jon and Anita Lewis. His father was an MAF pilot and his mother served the missionary community in various ways. From his earliest years, he learned the need for mission aviation in the remote parts of the world. He saw how MAF accelerated the great work the church and other organizations accomplished by bringing people together and offering aid.

Adam appreciated how MAF operated like a family, as they persevered together through the highs and lows of ministry. Adam notes, “Beyond the impact of MAF through their mission and purpose, I saw MAF staff lovingly interact with the culture they were a part of. They did not hide in a missionary bubble but purposefully engaged with those around them. I had the pleasure of joining with a group of MAF families to travel from church to church in the DRC, singing songs and using sign language as we sang. There are many amazing choirs in the DRC, but we were very different from the norm. The impact we made left a strong impression on me.”

Adam received his B.A. from BIOLA University in southern California before he joined Samaritan’s Purse to rebuild churches in South Sudan. He took what he learned from his MAF family and put it into practice, connecting with Samaritan’s Purse staff from all over eastern Africa and helping to plan Jesus Film showings.

After Sudan, Adam received a master’s in Biblical and theological studies from Talbot Theological Seminary. He was also fortunate to intern with the junior high youth group at Ocean View Baptist Church in San Pedro, California. He worked for a year in the financial aid office at BIOLA and then joined the technology advancement team at Wycliffe Associates. After moving to Spokane, Washington, he picked up several certificates in computer science and web design at Spokane Community College.

Through these experiences, Adam could see how God is working all over the planet, and he wanted to continue to be part of it. His heart for service and building others up turned his interest toward teaching. He saw a need to support MAF and other missionaries in Papua, Indonesia, by educating their children.

Adam will serve at Hillcrest School, teaching computer science to kids from kindergarten through high school. He eagerly anticipates the challenge of investing in the lives of future generations, helping missionaries stay overseas, and thus joining what God is doing around the world.
