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.

Lighthouse Church

True Light Ministries in southern Orissa desired an architecturally significant centerpiece for their 2 acre campus. The EMI designed meeting hall was constructed to meet this purpose.  

The 500 seat auditorium has a raised floor level and long overhangs helps to keep out driving rain while still allowing natural light and breezes.  The use of non-parallel interior walls, perforated ‘jali’ walls and good audio systems would help to minimize acoustic issues in the sanctuary.  Exposed aggregate, heavy textured exterior walls and concrete roof require low maintenance.  Because of the sloping site, the sanctuary steps down in three locations to improve site lines toward the stage.  It accommodates 500 people in chair seating.
