Through the ministry of aviation, Agape Flights delivers love and hope.
After witnessing the devastating poverty and falling in love with the Haitian people, Agape founders stepped out in faith, mortgaged their home, bought Agape’s first plane, and began flying essential supplies to a few missionaries in Haiti. Choosing “Agape,” the Greek word for God’s unconditional love, to represent the core of this multi-denominational Christian aviation ministry, Agape Flights, literally translated means, “God’s Love Flights.”
Equipped with the resources they need and God’s amazing love, missionaries can actively share the love of Christ through agriculture, athletics, clean water and community resources, education, evangelism and discipleship, home and church construction, medical and dental care, micro-enterprise opportunities, orphan care, and vocational training. Our vision is that missionaries will never lack the resources to share the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
In a world where resources are few and the infrastructure is sparse, Agape Flights’ timely deliveries of mail and supplies are vital to sustain missionary families and their ministries.
More than 350 missionary families rely on Agape Flights to transport the mail and supplies they need while living and working on the mission field in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas. Agape Flights is an important stateside connection for missionaries -- by serving as their “home” address, Agape provides dependable mail service and the personalized cargo service the missionaries need. Agape Flights also:
- Delivers humanitarian aid and religious supplies into Cuba via the Cuban Council of Churches
- Expedites relief supplies during disasters and emergencies
Agape Flights is an effective means of reaching hurting people through our affiliated mission partners serving in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, and Cuba. In 2 Corinthians 9, the apostle Paul gives us a clear picture of God’s desire for us to “supply the needs of the saints.” With that clear mandate, we are committed to making regular mission flights, delivering timely supplies and humanitarian aid. One of Agape's biggest strengths is that it is readily available to the missionaries: a support system on the other end of the phone or email that understands what they need to receive is important and not easily purchased "down the street."
The original principles that Agape was founded on in 1980 continue to work today. Every week, our aircraft departs from the Agape Flights’ hangar in Venice, Florida - transporting all kinds of provisions. Our pilots are met at airports throughout the islands by missionaries who serve as the distribution network on the ground, ensuring that provisions reach their intended destinations: orphanages, medical clinics, hospitals, schools, and churches. It’s then that the transformation begins…
Building supplies become homes, churches and schools.
A water pump provides clean water for an entire community.
Bibles and teaching materials become resources for discipleship.
And, medical supplies in the hands of a nurse or surgeon save a life.
60 mission flights a year carry 32,000 pieces of mail and 200,000 pounds of supplies. Agape’s affiliated missionaries often remark, “Agape Flights is our supply-line, our lifeline, our connection to home.” The cooperative effort forged by missionaries, donors, volunteers, board members, and staff, is grounded by faith in God's son, Jesus Christ.
