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.

Project Portfolio

Life Resource Centre

The India Pentecostal Church Northern Region (IPCNR) operates a 3-story facility in Faridabad, Haryana.  The top 2 floors contain a meeting hall, theological training program and staff residence. IPCNR desired to utilize the ground floor of the building to house an outreach program to 18-25 year old youth.  Largely the children of migrant laborers, these youth have been unable to complete their schooling due to financial constraints, and as such, lack the necessary skills to enter the workforce. IPCNR’s program, to be called the Life Resource Centre (LRC), will provide English classes, computer trainings, and personal/professional development opportunities, while at the same time providing a safe and loving environment.  Additionally, the space will be used by pastors and church leaders for conferences and meetings.

EMI’s design of the 1,200 sq ft space includes reception and admin spaces, a small conference room, kitchenette, classroom for 50 students, computer training space for 12 students, and two restrooms. The completed and constructed design provides a youthful yet professional space where youth from all over India can grow and learn.  EMI acted both as the interior designers and general contractors for the project which was completed during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Traditional Indian motifs are given a modern flair throughout the space, with bright colors and warm textures that create a vibrant and inviting space.
