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.

designing a world of hope


 

History & Purpose

After a short-term trip to an island in the Pacific in 1981, God gave a structural engineer a vision to involve design professionals in ministry to people in need. This vision became EMI.

Engineering Ministries International was incorporated in May of 1982. The first design professional joined as full-time staff in 1984. The first satellite office (EMI India) was established in 1998 to better accomplish EMI’s mission and vision. As EMI’s staff and locations grew over the years, the leadership of EMI recognized the need for a support team to keep EMI’s global efforts unified and in-focus.

Established in 2013, EMI Global is anchored by the CEO of EMI and the COO of EMI, and exists to empower, advise, and give direction to EMI worldwide in order to carry out the vision and mission of the ministry.
