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

BA, Music, Biola University - La Mirada, CA, 2000

With 13 years in the human resources field, half of that time was spent in the private sector, and half working in Department of Defense contracting firms. Across a wide spectrum of industries and human resource disciplines, Josh learned of the opportunity to blend his HR experience with his background in ministry and love of missions with EMI. He has been with EMI since 2014.

Ministry Experience

Josh's first taste of international missions came through several short-term mission trips in junior high, high school, and college. He also was blessed to experience vocational ministry while teaching at a Christian high school in Southern California. These days, aside from the ministry of EMI, Josh loves being involved at his local church, serving on the tech team, prayer team, and as an elder.


Josh's wife Wendy, serves as the Director of Finance at Hope & Home, a foster care agency in Colorado Springs. Married in 2001, Josh & Wendy have lived in Colorado Springs since 2007. They have two awesome kids, Connor (born 2004) and Cosette (born 2006).
