Every EMM worker's primary focus is to make disciples of Jesus. Teach the Bible to established churches throughout West Africa who are hungering for teaching from an Anabaptist perspective. Assignments could range from weeks to years in length. This opportunity is suitable for someone interested in non-resident mission work.
You can help support an after-school program called Foleza (The Little Nest) run by the Evangelical Church of Erseke, Albania, for disadvantaged children. Funds will be used for sturdy individual study cubicles (12–16 cubicles) for the after-school program giving the children a personal space to help them focus on their school homework.
Grow in leadership and discipleship skills while joining God's work during the summer Kingdom Team (K-Team) program for youth groups. Help to make disciples of Jesus while leading youth both in discipleship training and in service opportunities connecting with at-risk children in various urban settings. Preferred application deadline is March 1.
K-Teams will serve low income families in Phenix City’s Five Points community alongside Village Church, who is immersed and active in reviving this low income population. In collaboration with Village Church members and local community development groups, K-Teams will work with at risk children and youth in a summer feeding and education program by providing meals, mentoring, and activities to help them find hope in their present circumstances and for their futures.
K-Teams will serve community children in Lebanon alongside local churches and community partners involved with providing community children with fun, enrichment activities throughout the summer. In collaboration with various community groups, K-Teams will share the love of Christ with children in the city of Lebanon by helping to plan and lead activities at a summer day camp in a local park.

Every EMM worker's primary focus is to make disciples of Jesus. Work with one of several health clinics run by non-governmental organizations in a capital city in Central Asia. Seek additional opportunities to serve and build relationships locally.
With no other options, some Cambodian university students in Phnom Penh have to stay at a Buddhist pagoda or in a cramped room rented with other students. To provide a safe, comfortable, Christian home, EMM has introduced something new: dorm life!
