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.

Professional Training & Experience

  • B.S. in Civil Engineering – Villanova University, 1993
  • M.A. in International Development – Eastern University, 2012
  • Licensed Professional Engineer, Maryland
  • Served with EMI Uganda, 2014-2015

Before joining EMI, Dan spent 16 years working as a civil engineer in Maryland for both the public and private sectors.  For nearly 5 years, Dan served with Antioch Network, an international Christian organization engaged in discipleship, church planting and global evangelism.

Ministry Experience

An awareness of the needs of the international poor first emerged when Dan traveled to Panama as part of a college engineering service trip in 1992.  A desire to serve in cross cultural ministry took further shape after a trip to Nepal in 1999, an experience that led Dan to catalyze a focus on missions as a lay leader at his church in Maryland.  A season of vocational ministry with Antioch Network from 2004-2009 led Dan to discover a passion for discipleship, spiritual formation and mentoring others.  Since joining EMI in 2014, Dan has enjoyed planning and leading project trips, day retreats and small group curriculums designed to help staff, interns and volunteers grow spiritually and draw closer to God.  Dan also serves at his local church as the leader of the Alongside Ministry, a ministry of companionship offering hospitality and conversation for the purpose of formation in Christ.


Dan met his wife Kim while they were both engineering students at Villanova University.  Along with their three children, they reside in Colorado Springs.
