While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. - Luke 24:15
The Walk to Emmaus develops Christian disciples and leaders by inspiring, challenging, and equipping active adult church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, workplaces, and communities. It also benefits less active members who are seeking to renew a relationship with God, grow spiritually, or discover firmer foundations for their lives.
Through The Walk to Emmaus, as they seek to become healthy and vital congregations, local churches have both a means of growing disciples and a tool for developing leaders for their disciple-making systems.
The program begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity that is wrapped in prayer and signs of sacrificial service. It continues for the rest of participants’ lives with follow-up groups that, along with the local church’s robust offerings, contribute to participants’ ongoing growth in grace.
Join us from November 28 to December 7, 2023. The pilgrimage is open to leaders and members of Emmaus Ministries communities around the world, as well as their family members and friends.

Don’t miss this opportunity to retrace the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus taken by the two discouraged followers of Christ.

Presentations on the importance of this pilgrimage and ways to make it meaningful will be available to all participants before and after the trip.
