Mission Aviation Fellowship President And CEO Speaking At Chattanooga Church March 31

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Mission Aviation Fellowship President & CEO David Holsten will be speaking at Chattanooga Church on Sunday, March 31 at 10 a.m. 

"He will be speaking about how MAF uses their fleet of 46 aircraft to take the love of Jesus to the world's most isolated people," officials said.  "Last year MAF served some 600 Christian and humanitarian organizations around the world by conducting 18,994 flights transporting 61,684 passengers and 6.25 million pounds of cargo.  Every day an MAF airplane takes off or lands every 14 minutes, serving some 450 destinations around the world."

Mr. Holsten assumed the presidency of MAF on July 16, 2018. He and his wife, Natalie, joined MAF in 2000.  "In leading MAF, David relies on God’s guidance and actively seeks the counsel of the executive leadership team and the board of directors, as well as that of MAF staff," officials said.

“It is my desire to not only be a part of addressing the significant physical needs of isolated people, but to also help them grow in their walk with the Lord. I want the message of the gospel to be clearly displayed in all we do,” Mr. Holsten said. 

The Holstens reside in Nampa, Id., and have four children.  During his 17 years of service, initially as missionary pilot/mechanic, he carried out several leadership roles, including chief pilot, program manager and regional director for Indonesia. 

Mr. Holsten became a Christian at an early age and was nurtured in his faith by his family, as well as by his church and youth group. He received a bachelor of science degree in missionary aviation technology from Moody Aviation, and holds a commercial pilot’s license with multi-engine rating, as well an airframe and power plant mechanic’s license. Prior to joining MAF he worked as a flight instructor with Moody Aviation for two years. 

"Chattanooga Church is proud to partner with Mission Aviation Fellowship in helping take the gospel to the world's most isolated nations," officials said. 

Pastor Morty Lloyd stated, "We welcome David Holsten to Chattanooga and look forward to his message that morning."  Everyone in the community is welcome to attend.

Mr. Holsten will also be speaking at the Collegedale Airport on Saturday, March 30.  That event will be held at 4639 McDonald Road, Apison, Tn. from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
