Radical refreshment and real skills for you, your relationships, and your ministry

EMI seminars, training events, and retreats deliver hands-on experience along with practical, Biblical, relational concepts. You will walk away with more than helpful information. You will gain personal, transformational understanding of how new concepts look and feel in real life. Our unique combination of interactive learning, small group practice, and individual feedback helps you rapidly absorb biblical truth and turn it into deep, personal transformation.  You’ll be amazed at how quickly negative habits give way to skills that encourage genuine caring and effective service.

EMI content and courses listed below can be combined and customized for your specific needs. Skill training can be delivered to you, your church, or your ministry in class, conference, or retreat formats. Contact us by email or call us (toll-free in the USA) at 1-800-EMI-GROW (1-800-364-4769) or 513-742-1100 and we’ll be happy help you identify the best solutions for your training needs.

You and your team can come to an EMI training event

Check our upcoming events page for equipping opportunities being offered at our LIFE Seminars or Dream Academy. Select the courses that interest you, and then register on line. Our courses are designed to be easy to learn and easy to teach back home, but we recommend you bring a team of three or more with you help you get things off to a strong start.

We can send an instructor to you

You can often get more “bang for your buck” by having a certified EMI instructor come to you and lead an on-site training at your church or ministry location. EMI courses are ideally suited for team retreats and church-wide events, as well as state or regional denominational conferences.

You can become a trainer

EMI courses have easy to use Instructor kits with detailed guides that enable anyone who has been through the course to begin effectively equipping others right away.  Kits are available in English, Chinese, and Spanish. We also have facilitator training videos that allow you to equip leaders (who have not taken the course) to facilitate the small group coaching and feedback sessions.  We want to help you grow the fruit of radically refreshing relationships in your own ministry for years to come.

You can offer a customized event featuring a top EMI speaker

Our experienced authors, speakers, and trainers can help you set the ideal tone for your event and inspire desire for outreach, discipleship, healing, or leadership.  They can also help you cast fresh vision for your church or organization.
