Engineering Ministries International
Engineering Ministries International (EMI) is a Christian development organization made up of architects, engineers and design professionals who donate their skills to help children and families around the world step out of poverty and into a world of hope. Engineering Ministries International designs facilities (including buildings, roads, clean water projects and more) that directly impact communities by meeting physical needs and communicating God's love in a practical way. We partner with Christian workers, pastors, and other non-profits who have a vision to help the poor and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since 1982, we've worked on almost 800 relief and development projects in 80 countries. Last year, we worked on 74 projects, closed out many others and donated over 56,392 hours in services to our client partners.
EMI is an organization of Christian professionals from many nationalities who serve as a technical resource for development, construction and disaster relief mission work around the world. In 2017, EMI worked on over 83 projects in 24 countries, sending out teams with more than 128 volunteers and 68 interns. These projects represent design work that will enable the construction of hospitals, schools, orphanages, water pipelines, ministry centers, youth camps, churches and places to live for some of the poorest people in the hardest to reach corners of the world. From hospital projects in both West and East Africa, to a community water project in the Dominican Republic, to a facilities and utilities analysis and upgrade project for a large ministry campus of over 400 residents in rural Zambia - EMI teams provided strategic planning, design, and construction assistance to many clients in a variety of critical times and places over the course of the year.
