Emmaus Is

…an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to experience God’s grace anew, as revealed to you through other believers.

The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.  Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.

The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.  Then participants are invited to accountable discipleship in small groups and participation in the Emmaus community.  Each participant’s individual gifts and servant-leadership skills are developed for use in the local church and its mission.  Participants are encouraged to find ways to live out their individual call to discipleship in their home, church, and community.
