In 1936, EMM started the Mennonite Theological College of Eastern Africa (MTCEA) to train young church leaders. Today, the college is run by Tanzania Mennonite Church. But in recent years, the college struggled. In 2016, enrollment had dwindled to just three students.

Each year, EMM’s annual events are made possible through sponsorships from community-oriented businesses. These sponsors help to create a memorable year of EMM events that bring the community together to engage in missions at home and around the world. Thanks to each of our sponsors!

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.
