LANCASTER, Pa. — On January 3, Eastern Mennonite Missions (EMM) flipped the switch to begin generating enough solar energy to meet half of the electrical demands of its Hub 450 property.

EMM’s long-awaited renovations of 450 North Prince Street (Hub 450) were completed in the final months of 2020. EMM staff members are now working out of offices on the second floor of the 23,000-square-foot building.

Core values of Hub 450
Hospitality
Sharing food, friends
and relationships at the table

Opportunity
Partnering with neighbors,
community, nations

Presence
Practicing Christ’s love for the
well-being of the city and world

Engagement
Creating space for education,
art, business, innovation,
and faith

On this special day, the largest day of generosity in Lancaster County, we hope you’ll include Eastern Mennonite Missions in your giving. We believe that the love of Christ has the power to transform lives and that this love compels us to fulfill our mission of crossing cultures, engaging the world, and making disciples of Jesus. Gifts made today help support EMM’s Impact Fund, the fund that enables us to do this work in our community and around the world.

The transfer of leadership is a work of God’s grace that holds its unique challenges. It was 1988 that we left for a three-year term to a place in Tanzania that the Tanzanian Mennonite Church (KMT) had invited us to serve. After completing language school, Joe was given the task of teaching Theological Education by Extension (TEE) with a local pastor and church leader, Joseph Nyakyema, who was married to Jeanette, a missionary. For two years, we worked closely together in traveling and teaching over 100 students in 12 different locations every two weeks.
