EMQ is a professional journal for working missionaries, missions agency leaders, missions educators and students, and missions-minded church leaders. Now in its 59th volume, EMQ has been published continuously since 1964. It transitioned to a digital format in 2017. Print-on-demand publishing on Amazon was added in January 2018.
The first editor stated in its inaugural issue that the publication had two purposes: to provide the Church with the insights gained from its global work and for mission agencies to keep each other stimulated and informed with ideas and practical missionary tactics. EMQ’s content continues to focus on fresh, innovative, and accessible ideas pertaining to world missions that have practical application for its audience.
