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.

Professional Training & Experience

  • BS, Civil Engineering, University of Nebraska - Omaha, Omaha, NE, 2004
  • MBA, Marketing, University of Nebraska - Omaha, Omaha, NE, 2008
  • PE, Civil Engineering, Water Resources, Nebraska

After graduating from Nebraska, Graham joined the staff of Lamp Rynearson & Associates in Omaha. There he was able to learn the complexities of design in land development. During this season, Graham acquired his PE, MBA, and completed a one-year internship with EMI in India.

Ministry Experience

Graham made the leap from the marketplace into ministry with a jump onto his home church staff (Christ Community - Omaha). Taking up a position in International Ministries, Graham helped lead the church into cross cultural ministry. Questions swirled around helping and hurting as we seek to serve those in need around the globe, and Graham came face-to-face with the question, "is short term service good?" This two year assignment helped round out the Franks preparation for service with EMI and their greater assignment in India.

Family

Graham & Carrie have a "BIG" family with six little ones running around. Carrie is eager to pursue her masters in Nurse Midwifery and the Franks are excited to find their next cross-cultural assignment catching babies and designing water systems in least reached parts of the world. Today they are eager to discover America as Graham serves EMI in his role as Development Director in Colorado Springs.
