Mission Aviation Banquet 2024

(Registration extend through March 3rd!)
Southwest Missouri…Let me introduce you to Mission Aviation!

For over 75 years, God has used aviation to advance his kingdom in some of the remotest parts of the world. Aviation greatly facilitates the work of those endeavoring to take the soul-saving message of Jesus to people in difficult and distant places.

As someone who grew up here in Southwest Missouri, and as the founder and CEO of a mission aviation readiness program in Bolivar, I would like to personally invite you to a very-special evening in Springfield on March 14th – the 2024 mission aviation banquet.

During the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to meet members of IAMA, the International Association of Missionary Aviation. Through personal conversations, videos, and our keynote speaker, you’ll be able to explore this often-unseen aspect of the Great Commission, and consider whether you, your church, or your organization might want to get involved.

IAMA is holding its 53rd annual conference in Bolivar that week, and it will conclude with the banquet at the new global headquarters and training center for Convoy of Hope in Springfield. We would like you, Southwest Missouri, to join us.

Schedule of events:

5:30-6:30 – Meet and Greet: During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet around 100 of our members representing 35 mission aviation organizations, while enjoying some delicious hor d’oeuvres from Simply Delicious.

6:30-7:30 – Dinner: What better way to welcome our mission aviation community to Southwest Missouri than to introduce them to some of our local favorites like Springfield-Style Cashew Chicken from the original Leong’s Asian Diner along with Frozen Custard from Andy’s Frozen Custard.

7:30-8:30 – Program: We will introduce you to the overall mission of IAMA and our member organizations, and then welcome Dr. Heath Adamson, Senior Vice President of Global Program at Convoy of Hope as our special guest speaker.

Reservations can be made on the IAMA website. The cost is $25.00 per person. If you have a question or need further information, please contact me.

Thank you for considering my invitation to this first-ever event.

Kerrick Tweedy, CEO
