Gene and Lynn Jordan are missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship. They have 2 adult daughters, Kimberly and Kelley. The Jordans have been a part of MAF since 1977, filling many varied roles, including pilot/mechanic/program manager in Ecuador, and Regional Manager for Latin America.
In 2000, Gene and Lynn were asked to move from Ecuador to MAF’s worldwide headquarters. Gene initially assumed the responsibility as MAF’s Director of Communications. “I enjoyed 18 months of getting out the MAF story so that more individuals and churches could partner in completing the tasks of Matthew 28 and Acts 1,” Gene says.
In March of 2002 Gene was asked to assume responsibilities as MAF’s Vice President of Personnel. This Division of MAF includes:
Daughter Kim graduated from Wheaton College as a political science/international relations major. She spent two years with Operation Mobilization serving on the Logos II. She and her husband, Peter, both serve with Voice of the Martyrs.
Daughter Kelley completed studies leading to an undergraduate degree from Moody Bible Institute, followed by a Master’s degree from Wheaton College in counseling. She and her husband, Nate, serve as missionaries in Ecuador.
Lynn has taught missionary kids at each of the mission schools near the MAF bases where they have been assigned overseas and continues teaching in the Nampa school system. She considers her classroom as her mission field.
“It’s been exciting to see God work and build His Church in the Amazon jungles of Latin America. My current challenge is to prepare future pilots, mechanics, computer whizzes, radio technicians, teachers, and administrators to reach those areas of the world that still have not heard the Good News.”
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 Gene and Lynn’s ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Ministry Partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
The U.S. offices of MAF serve as a hub for MAF services worldwide. A day in the life here includes specialized flight training, staff mobilization and counseling, purchasing and shipping of aircraft parts, finance and accounting, administration of an Internet gateway for worldwide email, fund raising, printing and mailing of various materials, and many, many more activities. Some staff serve around the country; training future pilots and mobilizing potential candidates to serve with MAF.
MAF missionaries raise support for a pooled fund out of which MAF covers salary, housing, benefits, and staff-related ministry expenses. MAF exercises discretion over the use of missionary support in the exercise of its mission and care of its staff.
