At MAF, we believe that nothing should stop people receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are.

Our vision is to see ‘isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.We believe that everyone deserves a chance to experience the love of Jesus and we use aviation and technology because these are often the only ways to reach isolated people with Christ’s love.For 75 years, MAF has been flying light aircraft over jungles, mountains, deserts and swamps. We enable more than 2,000 aid, development and mission organisations to bring medical care, emergency relief, long term development and Christian hope to thousands of communities.


The whole reason we exist is to make much of Jesus. We stand alongside the missionary sending church, to serve them, to fully equip them and communicate the missionaries’ story with them.

We desire to impact the world through church planting. We use our connections within Elim Global to connect our church planting practitioners to areas of need. Everything we do is because God has enabled us by His Holy Spirit. We can do nothing without Him.

We currently have more than 70 missionaries serving in 27 countries.


Release International is an inter-denominational Christian ministry working through local church partners in around 30 countries, helping persecuted Christians prayerfully, pastorally and practically.

Our ministry is inspired by the testimony of Pastor Richard Wurmbrand and is based on Hebrews 13 v 3: ‘Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.’

Our calling is to love and serve persecuted Christians by raising their voice, giving them the ‘tools’ they need to live for Jesus Christ, calling UK Christians into fellowship with them, learning lessons of Christian discipleship with them, and maintaining Christian stewardship to honour them.
