Archivist

"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots." -- Marcus Garvey


EMM's history is important; we have a story to preserve and tell. But we need volunteers to accomplish this by organizing and labeling files in our archives. Knowledge of EMM programs and missionaries is helpful, but not required. Volunteers may choose when and how long to work. Interested?
