The Heartland Faithful Walk to Emmaus Suddenly, Jesus himself came along and joined them and began walking beside them. -Luke 24.15
The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant of all."
The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and reflection, times of discussion and worship, and daily celebration of Holy Communion.
The Emmaus Walk begins Thursday evening and concludes Sunday evening. Men and Women attend separate weekends.
Who Should Attend the Walk to Emmaus?
Emmaus is for the development of Christian leaders who ...have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and desire a closer relationship with him; ...wish to strengthen their spiritual lives; ...may have unanswered questions about prayer, study and sharing their faith; ...understand that being a Christian involves responsibility; ...are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner.
