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.

Jan 23 - Feb 5

The International Arabic House of Prayer (IAHOP) has invited EMI to partner with them to help develop a Master Plan for a large piece of land they have in Wadi Natroun, Egypt.

IAHOP is a Prayer Ministry of the Protestant Churches Fellowship in Egypt. Their goal is to organize and connect all evangelical organizations and spread the importance of the prayer movement in Egypt by empowering local churches to pray through different channels such as conferences, courses, and other schools.

Project Scope

IAHOP is dreaming of building a complete area that will accommodate all the facilities required. This will include different kinds of housing for families, students, or individuals who want to come and spend time in prayer. There will also be a main conference hall to host large events, as well as teaching facilities such as lecture halls, classrooms and a library. To support the facilities there will be a dining hall, coffee shop, play field and green space for recreation.  The land will also be used for agriculture to help support the operations.

We are looking for a Master Planner that has experience developing large sites with varied facilities.  A building architect and surveyor will also be needed for the design team.

This project will be led by the MENA office.  Would you prayerfully consider joining our team?
