Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Join Team EMI across Canada on October 5 as we ride to Design a World of Hope!

Ride for Refuge is a Canada-wide family-friendly cycling and walking fundraising event that helps support charities that provide refuge and hope for the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited.

Rides take place in cities across Canada, with distances ranging from a 5K walk to an easy 10K to a 50K power ride.

Funds raised in the ride will support the ongoing work of our project teams. Click here to view a trio of videos showing how EMI works with client ministries to assess needs, deliver design solutions, and bolster ministry impact.
