“I was blessed to take EMI courses while I was still a baby Christian in my 40’s. Each course has helped me communicate better with my wife, family, patients, friends…even strangers and those hostile towards me as a Christian physician and scientist. Practicing EMI skills regularly becomes second nature, and as such, intertwined with my DNA.”

“I have found deep wells of the loving heart of God through its ministry that I have not experienced anywhere else in my 30 years as a Christian. I was introduced to EMI in my 20’s when I was struggling to fully live out biblical principles as a newlywed. In several local churches I have been blessed to see the life-giving power that manifests when members begin to use the skills we teach. I have seen powerful results when our business has applied these skills in consulting and corporate training.”

“Culture is the number one predictor of outcomes. Often the ability, skills and insights to translate great truths of scripture to an every day reality is missing. EMI provides that much needed translation! God has blessed many (myself included) with practical tools to help the body of Christ feel and live her inheritance.”
