Abbie Thiebaut
Mission Trips & Marketing

“Through leading mission trips in NYC, Caribbean IMMERSION, and now supporting short-term trips from the home office, I have found a passion for compassion and feel so blessed to help others engage in experiences that allow them to grow in compassion for others. I absolutely love connecting with church and team leaders and helping to share the mission of EM through marketing initiatives.”

"The chief end of man is to know God and to enjoy Him forever. As followers of Christ our mission is a call to worship; to live consciously and constantly before the face of God. Our mission is to experience God and to incarnate Christ. Our mission in southern Africa is to live our mission."

Linda Rawlins
Finance Team

"I've been a part of the EM family for years—raising my family with the attitude of service, compassion and dignity which is so modeled by the entire EM culture and staff. But now I actually have a new role behind the scenes, working on the Finance Team. Whether we are behind a desk or out in the field, at the end of the day, we are all here to glorify God, to be His hands and feet, and to encourage others to do the same!"

Madison Kintigh
IMMERSION Coordinator

Sara Hale
Mission Trip Coordinator

"I love working with EM; whether it be behind the scenes or serving with them in communities. It is so amazing to see people walk out this journey and learn what it means to 'live their mission.' I am also continually grateful that I get to serve alongside our incredible community partners and continue the relationships we started during my first IMMERSION in 2013."
