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

  • BS, Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, 1993

Kevin began working at TLC Engineering for Architecture as a co-op student while he was a freshman in college.  After graduating from Tech, Kevin worked in TLC's Orlando and Tampa offices.  There he was blessed to experience all aspects of consulting engineering - from the print room to the board room - and worked on a wide variety of projects including universities, office buildings and many airport projects.  During this time at TLC, Kevin acquired his PE and became a LEED Accredited Professional.  

Ministry Experience

God began to stir Kevin and his wife Jenni's hearts after a family mission trip to Jamaica in 2011 and decided they wanted to do something different with their remaining working years. They began to explore options and volunteered on their first EMI trip in 2012. A few months later they sold their house, bought a RV and spent all of 2013 traveling the US as a sort of "life reboot" experience while we thought about what God might have for them in ministry. They returned to Florida at the start of 2014 then moved to Colorado to join EMI in March 2015.  


Kevin and Jenni celebrate 25 years of marriage in 2018 and have three children - Joel (born in 1998), Kristen (born in 2003) and Emily (born 2005).  Jenni enjoys her role performing photography and videography for EMI and they find it a great blessing to share in this ministry together.
