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.


Dear Ministry Representative,

Thank you for your interest in Engineering Ministries International (EMI) and the not-for-profit design services we offer to Christian ministries around the world.

We would like to take moment remind you of a few important aspects about engaging with EMI:

  • EMI mobilises volunteer design professionals to serve Christian ministries that are helping the poor and advancing the gospel of Christ.
  • EMI is a faith-based organisation that relies on the gifts of churches, design professionals, and laypersons to operate. EMI does not fund or raise funds for project construction. EMI does not fund or raise funds for ministries.
  • EMI offers various design services in the form of on-site investigations, consultations, drawings, reports, construction supervision, etc., determined as per project need and scope. Christian ministries are required to donate the not-for-profit costs associated with these services to EMI.

Please take time to prayerfully answer the questions in this Pre-Application. The information you share with us starts the conversation with EMI about ‘designing a world of hope’ with your project!

Thank you!

The EMI Project Development Team
