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.

Église Baptiste Bethléem (Bethlehem Baptist Church) is seeking to build a new facility in the Cameroonian capital city of Yaoundé. On a small piece of land recently purchased by the church, leaders desire to construct a multi-story facility to house the church, a church-based seminary, conference center, and print production facility. This project is a strategic effort to enable greater pastoral training and availability of Biblical materials for the francophone population in Cameroon and West Africa.

Project Scope

This project involves a network of several ministry partners working together to bring about Biblical training within the context of the local church. In conjunction with the local Église Baptiste Bethléem, Bethlehem College & Seminary (based in Minneapolis, MN) is working with the Treasuring Christ Together Church Planting Network to establish this church and seminary as a launching site for regional church-planting and outreach to unengaged people groups.

Leadership of these ministry partners have purchased a smal site (0.25 acres) in Yaoundé and have alreadry graded the site and constructed a boundary wall. The challenge for the EMI project team will be to create an attractive and functional design that will serve the ministry well within the constraints of the small site. EMI is pleased to be given the opportunity to work on this project as we serve our partner ministries in advancing the Gospel in unreached regions of the world.
