One of our greatest needs in missionary aviation today is aircraft mechanics. Providing aviation services as a transportation solution for missions directly impacts the spread of the gospel around the world. As an aircraft mechanic you will ensure aircraft are maintained in an airworthy condition and available for dispatch, meeting the demands of busy mission flight schedules.

There are nearly 600 million people in the world with little or no access to Scripture in the language they know best, their heart language. JAARS is here to do something about that.
JAARS makes Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. We do that by enabling locally-appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation, technology, media, and training.
We need more staff to make in possible. Of those who work at the JAARS Center in Waxhaw, N.C., 50% are volunteers either short- or long-term, full- or part-time, and of all ages and training backgrounds. Missionaries and a few paid personnel round out the staff.
Consider becoming part of our team that impacts people for eternity by helping give them God’s Word!
