Welcome to EMS
From the desk of the EMS President
Greetings to EMS members and those who are interested in EMS!
I bring you greetings during this springtime when flowers are budding. The verse below is appropriate for the Easter season and a good reminder of our blessings and hope because of the resurrection of our Lord:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
This is the time many of the EMS regional conferences are taking place. Please use the navigation panel on the right to see details of the local gathering in your own area, so you can meet other like-minded Christians and enjoy fellowship with other Kingdom workers.
Just a reminder to EMS members: You should have received from Dr. Fred Smith an e-mail with PDF attachment concerning the discount for early registration and hotel registration for the EMS Annual Meeting in Dallas, September 19-21, 2013. If for any reason the message from Dr. Smith did not reach you, please contact him fsmith (at) tfc.edu.
We should not lose heart in spite of repeated hearing of discouraging news (e.g. the decline of church attendance, shrinking missions budget, weakening of US dollars…) for Christ has risen and is victorious over sin and death. May the word from the Apostle Paul lift up your spirit:
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Cor 15:58)
