Emmaus is a wonderful opportunity for Christian leaders who:

  • Are members of a local church
  • Have a desire to strengthen their spiritual lives
  • Have unanswered questions about their faith
  • Understand that being a Christian involves responsibility
  • Are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God

What is Walk to Emmaus?

The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day short course on Christianity that provides an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love are revealed through other believers. You’ll enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups. You’ll learn about how God’s grace is real in your life, how to live a life of grace and how to share God’s grace with others. At the conclusion of the Walk to Emmaus, you’ll be equipped for new levels of grace-filled service and leadership.

Spiritual renewal continues long after the three-day Walk to Emmaus, as participants meet in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ. These groups will nurture you as you expand your spiritual life through worship, study and participation in your local church. And they’ll encourage you to become a more active disciple of Christ in service to the world.
