Eagle Flight Aviation Ministries

Serving in:
Olathe, Kansas
Growing up outside of Kansas City, Joel spent many days at the airport, watching airplanes take off and land at the small airport close to his
home.  Having a desire to fly since the age of 6, God opened the door in 2004 for Joel to begin the journey to fulfill that desire.  While working
on his Certificated Flight Instructor qualifications, God set a vision of a ministry utilizing aviation in three distinct categories; ministry
transportation, flight training for ministry, and as a youth pastor, youth aviation programs.  He has spent the last several years as a flight
instructor, developing a solid curriculum with a focus on serving the Lord with airplanes, as well as building the vision for Eagle Flight.  
Currently Joel is working as an apprentice mechanic at the flight school he teaches at, to gain the experience required for aviation
maintenance certification.

Joel and Jennifer have been married since 1998 and have four children.  They have served as youth pastors and traveling ministry as well as
worked in missions in the Philippines.   The family has a heart for the Lord and for missions and look forward to seeing God fulfill His vision
He has placed in their hearts.
Our full-time staff missionaries
are essential to the vision of this
