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.

It is a privilege for EMI to be able to partner with Chile Mission for the Masterplan and Concept Design of their new camp and ministry center in Bodenca, Chile. EMI is excited to partner with them, to give voice to their vision, and to help them plan and build for the future.

Es un privilegio para EMI poder asociarse con Chile Mission para realizar el Plan Maestro y Diseño Conceptual de su nuevo campamento y centro ministerial en Bodenca, Chile. EMI está entusiasmado de asociarse con ellos, de dar voz a su visión, y de ayudarlos a planificar y construir para el futuro.

Project Scope


Chile Mission focuses on local churches in Chile to reach people, and especially children, with the love of Jesus, that they might know and follow him too. Their work also involves housing and emotional & spiritual support for mothers of children coming to Santiago children’s hospitals from other parts of the country to receive long-term medical treatments.

To expand their current camp ministry, they have a property for a children’s camp/Christian center between Chillán and Concepción, six hours south of Santiago. Ideas for the camp include a retreat center, cabins, a dining facility, amphitheater, horse stables, agriculture development areas, a lake for water activities and more.

Chile Mission has asked EMI to partner with them in developing a masterplan for their new ministry site, helping them to take the next steps on their journey and to build well for the future. We will be working with local designers, so experience speaking Spanish would be helpful.  Will you join us in designing a world of hope?



Chile Mission se enfoca en capacitar a los líderes de iglesias locales para ministrar a los adultos y jóvenes, con el fin de ganar almas para Cristo y discipularlos en la Palabra de Dios. Su trabajo también incluye vivienda y apoyo emocional y espiritual para madres de niños que vienen a hospitales de infantiles en Santiago de otras partes del país para recibir tratamientos médicos a largo plazo.

Para expandir su actual ministerio de campamentos, tienen una propiedad para un campamento de niños / centro cristiano ubicado entre Chillán y Concepción, seis horas al sur de Santiago. Las ideas para el campamento incluyen un centro de retiro, cabañas, un comedor, anfiteatro, establos para caballos, áreas de desarrollo agrícola, un lago para actividades acuáticas y más.

Chile Mission le ha pedido a EMI que se asocie con ellos desarrollando un plan maestro para la nueva propiedad del ministerio, ayudándolos a dar los siguientes pasos en su jornada y así construir de la mejor manera para el futuro. Estaremos trabajando con diseñadores locales chilenos, entonces si tienen experiencia en el idioma español sería de gran ayuda.  ¿Se unirá a nosotros para diseñar un mundo de esperanza?
