We are excited that you are exploring mission and service opportunities with Eastern Mennonite Missions.

EMM strives to help you discern and discover your call to ministry and match it with the opportunities that exist within the EMM community of relationships and partners.

If God is calling you to cross-cultural ministry, we invite you to contact us and begin the discernment process.

At EMM we know that God gifts people very differently so we do not expect everyone to serve in the same way. We expect a person's ministry to line up with their gifts, interests and calling. Your ministry can be built on your expertise and/or interest in teaching, business, hospitality, medicine and other types of ministry.


Explore specific EMM opportunities to fit your interests or training.

EMM has over 146 personnel serving in over 36 countries. We have been involved in many locations for decades. Our experience and history has enabled us to build valuable relationships that enable us to partner effectively with local believers and other mission initiatives.
