Meet EMM’s workers! These mission workers are bringing the good news of Jesus to 35 countries around the globe. As these individuals and families serve in medicine, business, church planting, education, and much more, each of them is committed to helping others find transformation through Jesus.
On each of our workers’ pages, there is an option to set up regular financial contributions or make a one-time gift to sustain their ministry on the field. Both new and established workers have an ongoing need for people like you to partner with their ministry through financial support. Your gift to a new worker helps them raise the funds needed to begin their assignment, while gifts to workers already serving on the field help maintain and continue their work. As you look through this list of workers, please prayerfully consider how the Spirit is asking you to respond.
Your prayer support is also vital to the ministries of EMM workers! You’re invited to pray for an EMM worker every day by following our monthly prayer guide here (under the “Mission Intercessor prayer guide” tab).

Michael serves in Lebanon, Pa. with his wife, Deborah, and their two children. Michael has experienced the life-transforming power of the gospel in his personal life, and he desires to extend the hope of Christ to others by reaching out to the forgotten members of society, including people in his city who are returning from incarceration or rehabilitation from substance abuse. He understands the obstacles to reconnecting with society and building meaningful relationships. It is his deepest desire to come alongside men, supporting his community through social relationships and mentoring, and also by networking among ministries and city services.
During their first two-year term, Matthew and Rachel will focus primarily on learning the Gheg Albanian language and Kosovar Albanian culture.

This foundational knowledge of language, culture, and contextually-sensitive church planting strategies will serve them well in consecutive terms
