Who we are
Hope from Above Inc. (HFA) is an Australian-based Christian organisation. Our purpose is to help bring the gospel to unreached and inaccessible people groups, who can’t access the good news by their own initiative today. We aim to do this by providing aviation and technical support to pioneering ministries.

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
Revelation 7:9–10 (NIV)
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Romans 10:14–15 (NIV)
The purpose of Hope from Above is to help bring the gospel to unreached and inaccessible people groups, overcoming their isolation through aviation and technology, where no other alternatives are available, and without which, these people would remain unreached.
In doing so, HFA seeks to support existing mission organisations and individuals in their ministry through the utilisation of new methods and the use of unconventional and innovative technology, applied specifically, as dictated by needs, rather than random opportunities.

We are an incorporated not-for-profit association, registered with the Australian Government (ABN 73 134 802 658) and located in the state of Victoria.
HFA is governed by a Board of Directors. The people represented on the board have significant experience in missions, mission aviation, technology and Christian ministry.
HFA operates with a growing team who contribute significantly to the development and operation of the organisation, providing HFA with experience and expertise in:
- Mission aviation (Fixed wing & Helicopter)
- Aircraft operations & maintenance
- Aerial photography
- Pastoral care
The team is made up of staff and volunteers who equally contribute their skills and talents, to achieve the purpose of reaching the remaining isolated people groups for Christ.
HFA is unique in its organisational structure, not operating as an international organisation, but rather committing to networking with independent local organisations abroad that are united in the vision of HFA. We assist pioneering ministries in their work through the support of aviation and technology.
HFA is a faith-based ministry. We believe that the Lord has the resources needed for our ministry and we therefore emphasise the importance to ask Him for these resources in fervent prayer. It is our primary goal to operate in a way that brings glory and honour to God, asking and expecting from Him what is needed for our day-to-day operations. We do accept donations and we do invite fellow believers to join us in prayer for the needed resources.
