The EMBA exists to serve East Midlands Baptists in mission. This purpose is achieved by promoting healthy churches through caring, partnering, inspiring and equipping, and through the pioneering of new Christian communities and mission initiatives. In all these activities we seek to live under Christ’s rule and to be intentionally missional, relational and creative.
EMBA Pioneer Mission Grants may be offered for missional initiatives which extend the reach of the Gospel beyond the boundaries of the existing church; reaching into new communities or cultures. Grants may be awarded to churches, mission partners or to individuals. Priority will be given to those initiatives which seek to establish a community of discipleship that is authentic to both the context in which it is set and to the Way of Christ.
For further information about EMBA Pioneer Mission Grants please read the guidance notes.
