Ministry Experience

When the terms "ministry" and "missionary" are conventionally more directly used for one group of people and not the other (mainly your own), it is not uncommon to wonder how missional one's life is, or the extent to which one's work is considered ministry. Hope has been there. However, today she delightfully considers her service with EMI a calling as she offers support to national staff, expatriated staff and interns as they settle into the cross-cultural life found in EMI and Uganda. 

Hope joined staff with EMI in 2012. Prior to that, beginning in early 2008, she worked in an administrative role on EMI Uganda construction projects. 


Hope has 7 siblings, but as Jesus has shown us, family truly goes well beyond blood ties. She is also a part of the Hoyt family who also serve with EMI Uganda.
