Cross-border exchange

A minister from Ghana serving as an ecumenical coworker in a South African congregation; a young woman from India volunteering in a city in Hessen, Germany, and working in a Protestant kindergarten; a theology student from Württemberg who wants to get to know Japanese religions in Kyoto and the witness of the Christian minority by living among them; a woman from Germany working in ecumenical peace service in Palestine and Israel – they all practice what EMS means by ‘sharing through cross-border witness and service’.

They share experience, knowledge, faith and commitment to justice and peace with people from other countries, confessions and cultures. They share with one another, work and pray together, learn from one another. Enabling such exchange across borders is one of EMS core tasks.
