Workers

Meet EMM’s workers! These mission workers are bringing the good news of Jesus to 30 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).
