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.

Join us in Michigan

The Michigan Chapter of the EMI Network is a group of Christian design professionals (architects, engineers, surveyors, university staff, and professors, etc.) across the state of Michigan.

We have come together as an entire state to open up more opportunities for connection, especially for those who may not live near other EMI volunteers. We have strong volunteer bases in and around Grand Rapids and Detroit, but have volunteers across the state we're connecting.

Our goal is to provide a place for like-minded design professionals to connect and unite. We encourage each other to volunteer our time and resources for the sake of Christ both locally and internationally. We support the work and mission of EMI and partner with other local ministries, organizations, and universities when we can.

Currently we are hosting Zoom meetings bimonthly on the third Thursday of the month. To find out more or to join us, contact:
