Kevin and Kim Mills are excited to be serving with Mission Aviation Fellowship in Papua, Indonesia, at Hillcrest School (HIS). They enjoy being a part of the team providing quality education for the children of missionaries serving in Indonesia. Kevin uses his gifts in writing and communication to teach Creative Writing and Yearbook, as well as producing a weekly HIS publication. Kim is the K-12 Principal and keeps busy helping the school run smoothly.
Kevin grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and by the age of 8 had already developed a love for the Bible as well as an affinity for playing with words. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in English Education from John Brown University, where he and Kim first met in 1991. They were later married in 1993 and now have three children: Kyler (2002), Kaleb (2007), and Kara (2009). Kevin spends his spare time reading everything he can get his hands on, writing adventurous short stories and devotionals. He is passionate about transparent pursuit of God, encouraging younger generations to seek truth and pursue integrity, and living in radical obedience to His calling.
Kim grew up in many different locations (including Indonesia) as her parents were career missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Math Education, as well as a Master’s degree in Mathematics. Her combination of love for Jesus and for math has driven her passion for missionary children’s education, and she is committed to helping kids build excellence in education, character, and living lives of bold, authentic faith.
In the summer of 2012, Kevin and Kim were praying about which direction the Lord wanted them to move and felt His continued prompting to consider heading to the mission field. After inquiring about staffing needs at HIS, they were excited by the continual confirmations to pursue joining the HIS staff through MAF. They have served with MAF in various roles since 2013, including dorm parents, teachers, and administrators.
Kevin and Kim’s son, Kyler, will be attending Moody Bible Institute, and their younger children, Kaleb and Kara, are students at HIS in Indonesia. The Mills are thankful for the MAF team and enjoy providing for the educational needs of the kids.
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.
