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.

EMI South Africa is excited to be taking on more healthcare design work in 2022, with projects spread across southern Africa and spanning concept development through detailed design and into construction. As the office grows and invests in developing this new design focus, we are looking for an architect with experience in healthcare design who can provide additional training and assistance to our staff team.

Roughly half the world's population lacks access to essential health services, and every year millions of people die as a result of inadequate access to care. Our health-focused ministry partners are doing incredible work to change this, and it is a privilege to partner with them in bringing safe, effective, and high-quality care to the people who need it most. Healthcare design is distinct, and this specialist’s insight and expertise will enable our team to learn, develop, and grow professionally, increasing our capacity to serve our clients in new and deeper ways. 

Will you prayerfully consider joining us in designing a world of health and hope for people in southern Africa and beyond?


  • Experience with healthcare master planning and architectural design in the majority world, especially with the design of surgical theatres / operating rooms 
  • Experience with healthcare engineering systems, fit-out, and construction are a bonus
