Agape’s Mission Flight Program supports 60 regular mission flights per year.
Mission flights are the core of our work and vital to changing and saving lives throughout Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. Weekly flights deliver mail and supplies that are needed for 375 missionary families to live on the field and accomplish mission work in 3rd world conditions. Agape’s affiliated missionary partners meet every flight and serve as the distribution network to ensure that provisions reach their intended destination.
“Mission Flight Partner” Opportunity
Mission Flight Partners are needed to help underwrite expenses associated with one or more mission flights annually. Flight sponsorship opportunities begin at $5,000 and are funded on a year-by-year or special gift basis. Mission Flight Partners may choose to underwrite a flight in recognition of a special person or occasion. Partners are also encouraged to meet and pray with the pilots of their sponsored flight. Upon completion of the mission flight, Partners are provided with photos from the flight. Mission Flight Partners may also request a “preference to” one of the Caribbean locations regularly served by Agape.
Investments made by our Mission Flight Partners make a significant impact in Kingdom ministry. Together, we fly and serve for Jesus!
The core mission project was initiated in 1980 when Agape Flights began making weekly mission flights to Haiti. Mission flights originally began with service to Cap Haitien, Haiti. One year later, this one airport location expanded into two with service to Port au Prince, Haiti. Then, in 2001, two more service locations for missionaries were added in the Dominican Republic. In 2006, Les Cayes, Haiti was added, and most recently, in 2015, Agape began service to missionaries in Jeremie, Haiti on an “as needed” basis. Agape’s service is currently expanding into Cuba. On February 22, 2016, Agape Flights gained the approval to begin flying religious and humanitarian supplies into Cuba. The inaugural mission flight to Cuba on August 22, delivered 26 water purification units and enough food packets to provide over 10,000 meals to those in need of nourishment.
Agape’s annual Mission Flight Program* expense is more than $350,000.
The Mission Flight Program supports 60 regular mission flights per year with costs directly associated with the aircraft.
