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 remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

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 as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Research & Development (R&D) creates unprecedented growth opportunities for EMI. Alongside A&E and construction services, The R&D Team engages, influences, and brings long-term transformational impact to the local design and construction industry.

Though this 2020 Growing Globally initiative was put on hold due to COVID, we're excited to move forward with our EMI Uganda R&D team on this project in 2021.

Presently, R&D does not have dedicated areas for clean labs, workshops, or prototype development space. This limits the R&D team’s ability for empirical analysis, controlled experimentation, and presentation of solutions.

As the Workshop team shifted into its new facility in 2020, the shipping-container complex it occupied was vacated. EMI’s renovation and equipment plans will allow for adaptive reuse of this shipping-container complex. R&D outfitting will include Analytical Testing and Electronics Labs, Prototyping Fabrication Workspaces, and Presentation & Meeting areas.

Help outfit EMI R&D with a gift to Growing Globally this year!

In 2019, you gave more than US$90,000 to invest in training the future leaders of EMI! Thank you!!

As EMI makes advances to new regions of the world, growing in staff and impact, the need for Leadership grows with it.

With EMI growth comes the tremendous complexities of an increasingly multinational organization spread around the world. In order to meet these demands, EMI requires a new depth of leadership that both understands the complexities of EMI and can engage in humble, vulnerable, engaging leadership. As EMI grows globally, we will need our leadership capacity to grow with us. Will you help us build people who are capable to supporting and leading a thriving team of laborers for the gospel? Exciting times are ahead of us.
