Engineering Ministries Inc.  |  Colorado Springs

Serving with Engineering Ministries International (EMI) Since 2012


EMI is a non-profit Christian development organization designing facilities that serve the poor in developing countries. These facilities (hospitals, orphanages, schools, clean water projects, etc.) directly impact communities by meeting physical needs and communicating God’s love in a practical way. 


We partner with Christian workers, pastors, and other non-profits who have a vision to help the poor and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Employing primarily local construction labor in our Construction Management program provides a ripe mission field for intentional evangelism and discipleship.

Children: Baden, William, Corinne, Jack


UPDATE: After five years in Uganda we transitioned to EMI’s home office in Colorado Springs, CO. John is working full time with EMI Global’s leadership team as Human Resources Director to implement important organizational changes and strategies.  We covet your prayers in what is a challenging transition for us. We are still 100% devoted to this work of the Gospel, and excited to continue serving – hopefully even more effectively – the work of EMI in bringing hope to the poorest of the poor.
