Matthew Carter

Matthew Carter seeks to use what God has gifted him with for His purposes and glory through Mission Aviation Fellowship. As a pilot, he will deliver food, medicine, mail, and building supplies. He’ll also perform medical evacuation flights to villagers and to those following God’s call to bring the gospel to those who have yet to hear it. He looks forward to keeping local churches and missionaries directly supported and sustained as they shine God’s light to the people around them.

Matthew was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, on the Island of Orcas. He was blessed to have God-fearing parents who showed him the way of God. As a family, they supported MAF missionaries directly through prayer and funding, though Matthew never imagined he would eventually be part of God’s work through aviation. After assisting with disaster relief while serving in the Navy, he discovered a desire to use his gifts for God’s glory more directly, as a pilot. He received his aviation training at San Diego Christian College and continued building his pilot experience by flying skydivers.

As every life saved is a miracle, Matthew thanks God for the miracle of flight and the ability to serve Him through it. God calls the men and women of MAF to serve Him in unique ways.  He may also be calling you to a special role in Matthew’s ministry.  Please prayerfully consider becoming a ministry partner with him through prayer and/or financial support.
