EMI seeks to influence mission work through conducting cutting edge research on critical issues that affect the life of the church in Africa and proposing innovative solutions to any associated problems. Through research, EMI seeks to bring definition to the unfinished task of missions and to the challenge of discipleship, leadership development and other critical matters faced by evangelical churches on the continent. As mission practitioners we must be willing to re-examine the way we engage in missions.
EMI aims at influencing and supporting churches at various levels through sharing the findings of their research, writing material that is based on Biblical truth and writing opinion pieces based on biblical truths on key societal challenges. In this respect EMI will produce:
1. EMI Publications: EMI aims to serve the churches in Africa through providing well researched materials to encourage believers’ commitment to biblical truth. EMI will mobilize scholars to write articles in magazines and journals, as well as publish books.
2. International Journal for African Missions (IJAM): The purpose of this journal is to target the area of missiology oriented toward a concern for the unfinished task in Africa and beyond. The IJAM should provide in-depth, cutting edge thinking related to the frontiers of mission work and practice. Mission professors, field missionaries, mobilizers, executives, and researchers should share their latest thinking about frontier missiology in Africa through this forum.
3. Presentations: EMI will organise workshops, conferences and seminars on various topics as approved by its Board of Directors.
