Navigating the Changing World of Missions Aviation

"How might we use aircraft in order to propel the Gospel?" That was the mindset behind the founders of Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) after World War II. Doug Harrison is the Director of Strategy and Innovation today with MAF, he and his wife also spent time in the field in central Asia. Doug's job is to explore what the role of MAF is today even though the organization was born in the 1950's. The organization has seen changes with declining Western missionary passengers who have been replaced by national pastors or local Great Commission workers needing MAF services. MAF and Doug use a tool called the "Theory of Change" that has helped them work through some of the major shifts happening in the global mission field where they operate.
