Sharing an Inclusive Gospel,
Creating Christian Communities

If Not You, Who?

A Distinct Identity

Here at Encounter Missions International (EMI), we see an inclusive Christian world.  One where all are invited to experience God's love and acceptance, regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender.  Since 2000, we have made it our mission to communicate an inclusive Gospel message and to provide places for Christian connection, conversation, and community.  Are you ready to join us in creating real transformation in the lives of so many?  Because, if not you, then who?

Where In The World Are We?

God's Global Presence

If you find yourself unchurched, de-churched, disillusioned, or curious, or if you have been unceremoniously excluded from your Christian community, we've created inclusive Christian spaces around the world just for you.  Reach out to one of our locations for connection. Can't find an inclusive Christian community nearby? Let's talk—we'll help connect or create one for you.

Why We Do What We Do

People Deserve the Chance to Choose

"And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?"
Romans 10:14

The Problem

Too many people in the world today feel shunned and shamed by their churches. Unfortunately for too many, the Christian message has been a loud and clear rejection of who they are.  So the problem is this, how can LGBTQ+ people experience God's love?

The Solution

Inclusive Christian Communities!  The solution is to 
provide Christian places both locally and globally where everyone has the opportunity to explore, experience, and express God's love. Community, is God's chosen vehicle to make love real.

The Effect

The effect of these negative messages directed towards LGBTQ+ people can have devastating results such as agonizing isolation, low self-esteem, and a loss of their God-given dreams. So, if we don't care, who will?
