About Emmaus


Our college is located in Dubuque, a safe, lovely city of rolling hills and five colleges located on the Mississippi River, half-way between Chicago and Des Moines. We are an accredited, bachelor's degree-granting institution of higher learning. Our students come from 30 states and a dozen foreign countries. They pick us because they can study the Bible and train for their professions at the same time. All of our students want to serve the Lord, but the majority does not go to seminary and enter ministry full time. All will be active in servant-leadership in their churches, however. We teach the Bible with an emphasis on New Testament principles. Approximately fifty percent of our students are from the Plymouth Brethren assemblies, and the other half are from other evangelical churches.

Our faculty is committed to not only educating our students, but also developing personal, mentoring relationships with them. It is common for faculty to open their homes to students, as well as serve shoulder-to-shoulder with them in a local church. Though our faculty demonstrates scholarship, they are just as committed to training students within the context of a Christian community that offers maximum opportunity for spiritual growth and experience in hands-on Christian service. Our students learn how to minister in the real world to real people with real needs.
