After discovering and volunteering with EMI, he joined the US Office with a desire to see EMI grow in West Africa. Since then he has been a part of over 30 project trips, with the majority in West Africa and leading 14. John was instrumental in launching a new EMI office in Senegal in 2016.
For those of you who privileged to know and work with John, you will appreciate his passion for cross-cultural ministry, travel and cuisine. It is hard to keep up with John's shirts from all over Africa and he loves to cook traditional dishes from the continent, preferably in large quantities and with lots of hot spices! More than that, John has a desire to collaborate with local design professionals and EMI projects have hugely benefitted from his many friendships of engineers and architects in West Africa. John stepped out in faith in 2014 to attend language school in Paris where he met his future wife Céline. The Agee’s welcomed baby Luka back in December 2019.
John, thank you for your friendship and commitment to EMI – we are looking forward to the next 10 years!
