CRMF: Technology for the Church


Christian Radio Missionary Fellowship (CRMF), now known as MAF Technologies.

We are currently in the process of rebranding into a new brand, a new name and a new identity – MAF Technologies.

Why the new brand or a new name?

Christian Radio Missionary Fellowship (CRMF) has been partnering with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) since the early 1950s. CRMF was founded by three visionaries who wanted to capture their vision of evangelizing through short wave radio frequencies. To put it simply, they wanted to use telecommunication to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sydney McLeod – Jones or Syd, Robert Hartnell or Bob and Claude D Everlynes have worked together with other Missionaries in the Mission field but the strong bond and partnership that CRMF and MAF have integrated had been closely knitted since then.
It wasn’t a surprise when the partnership was officiated in 2010 to establish the bond between the two partners, after having serve together for over sixty – five (65) years.
CRMF is now in the process of rebranding to be one with MAF, merging the partnership into one organization by serving together under one purpose: to bring help, hope and healing through Aviation and Technology to the isolated communities in Papua New Guinea and around the world.

Mission Statement

“Serving together to bring help, hope and healing through Aviation and Technology.”

Vision Statement

“To see isolated people changed by the love of Christ.”

We will continue to provide the Churches in Papua New Guinea and the remote Communities with technological solutions, such as radio communication, information systems and technologies, solar products and solutions, digital Christian resources such as the Solar Audio Bible and many more, that help to support and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As Papua New Guinea is advancing rapidly into the technological era, we are here to stand with the Churches to help them break the “digital divide”, the barrier that the technological era has brought with it.

We will always stay true to our original ministry of HF radio communication with the remote communities in Papua New Guinea, monitoring from 8:00am – 5:00pm during the working week at the office, at 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm after hours and on the Week ends at 6:30 am – 7:00 pm on Saturday and 6:30 am – 5:00pm on Sunday at our residential bases here in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province.
