MAG Open House & Facility Dedication



On April 22 over 300 supporters of Missionary Air Group descended upon the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport, in Burlington, NC, for the Dedication Ceremony of MAG’s new headquarters.



The MAG Open House and Facility Dedication was a day to honor those that were instrumental in the move into our new base and the office addition that happened concurrently. 


The new MAG World Headquarters features a 1000 sq. ft. operations wing, a 4800 sq. ft. hangar, and the newly constructed 1400 sq. ft. administration wing.  During the open house, the facility was prayed over and dedicated as a resource to advance the Gospel around the world. 


The new admin wing was built over the period of roughly one year. Manpower came from a total of 56 individuals, from 18 churches, from 8 states.  The result is a modern, welcoming, & functional space where MAG staff can support the international work.



The entire MAG Staff was on hand to participate- US-based teammates were joined by MAG international workers from Gabon, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Attendees to the open house were able to visit with the missionaries while touring the MAG facilities.



Another aspect of the day was highlighting needs where additional teamwork is necessary.  In this photo, one such need is highlighted- a new, $77,000 engine is needed for a MAG refurbished aircraft, so that it can start serving in the fleet.  Please consider becoming a MAG teammate 
and help in the effort.  






A Cessna 206 training aircraft was on hand. MAG uses 6-seat aircraft such as these at our international service locations.  They are capable of operating from small, rugged airstrips, meeting the needs of remote people groups and demonstrating God’s love. 



The event was a good time for the whole family.  Our Kids Zone area featured fun and crafts designed to focus attention on the world and imagining life in those far off places.




Everyone was welcomed to explore our aircraft and imagine the types of missions MAG performs regularly. The majority of MAG efforts focus on gaining credibility among marginalized people through medical focused work, such that they become open to the message of the Gospel.




MAG is in need of more teammates!  Perhaps these young ones will one day join us.  Will you consider joining the MAG team?  We need YOU to join us in praying, in giving of resources, and in staffing our programs both in the US and around the world.
