Propelling the Gospel

God’s word needs to reach the ends of the earth, join us on the adventure.

About Us

We’re Missionary Aviators serving with JAARS. Our lives have been transformed by God’s forgiveness and love, giving us a passion to reach the ends of the earth with the same message. Aviation is the tool that will get this job done, lets go!

Our Story

God brought us together 20 years ago while we were both studying to become Missionary Pilot/Mechanics. We now serve at JAARS’ home base in Waxhaw, NC, although we have lived oversees in Togo and Cameroon, West Africa.


As the Aviation Engagement Manager, Rachael oversees Missions at the Airport, Vision Flights and CrossVenture|Aero, inviting people to partner with JAARS.


Dan serves as the Repair Station Training Manager helping to prepare technicians and aircraft for service here in Waxhaw, NC and with partner organizations overseas.
