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.

Ministry Experience

Andy first developed an interest in using engineering skills to equip ministries in high school while on a relief trip after Hurricane Katrina. After college, he had the opportunity to intern with an engineer and local missionaries in a small village in Swaziland (Eswatini), Africa where he helped facilitate care point outreach to the primarliy orphan-based community alongside local projects and community garden development. Upon retuning to the states, Andy spent a year working as a peer mentor in a farming-based Christian facility for young adults recovering from addiction called His Mansion Ministries. In 2015, Andy served as the college staff coordinator and program intern at Twin Rocks Friends Camp where he mentored counselors, facilitated retreats, and led an after-school program for youth. The Lord directed him to the internship program at EMI afterwards where he experienced a renewed calling and hope to use design skills in ministry.
