Kalvin and Dorilee Hildebrandt have been serving with MAF for over two decades. After completing Bible and flight training at Prairie Bible Institute, they worked in various locations in BC and Alberta, gaining experience before being accepted with MAF Canada in 1999. They were assigned to Chad, Africa, where they served between 2001 and 2013.
The family grew to love Africa and the opportunities to serve both the national church and the mission community. After several terms in Chad, the Hildebrandt’s sensed the Lord leading them back to Canada to serve in the Mission Aviation program at Prairie College where Kalvin had originally learned to fly. Beginning as a flight instructor, he also briefly filled the roles in Safety and Operations Management before assuming the role of Program Manager in 2016.
The Hildebrandts are thankful for the opportunity to share their overseas experience with college students and are particularly passionate to see them grow in their walk with Christ through their exposure to the aviation program.
