  • Distance Learning Positions

    In order to meet the needs of future students seeking access to high-quality, biblical education, Emmaus Bible College is launching a new initiative called Emmaus Distance Learning (EDL). We are excited about the prospect of providing increased access to Emmaus Bible College for-credit coursework through a high-quality, learner-centered and flexible online learning platform. Once fully developed, EDL will provide opportunities for learners from around the globe to study at Emmaus.

    We are currently seeking candidates for two Emmaus Distance Learning positions -- an EDL Administrative Coordinator who will interact directly with EDL students as well as provide administrative support for the EDL Director, and an EDL Systems Administrator with primary responsibility for design and management of the learning management platform (Moodle). Please visit to view position descriptions and consider applying, or share the information with individuals who might be a good fit for these needs.

  • Christian Ministry Seminars at Emmaus

    Christian Ministry Seminars (CMS) will be from February 2-4, 2015 at Emmaus Bible College. The college is looking forward to hosting over 30 different camps, churches, ministries and organizations on campus for this annual event. Throughout Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Emmaus students will hear from our Plenary speaker, Dave Hart.

    Dave serves as Ministry Director at Living Waters Bible Camp in southwestern Wisconsin. For the past 38 years his calling in ministry has been to “present everyone perfect in Christ" (Colossians 1.28-29), equipping believers to live lives that showcase the transforming power of the gospel (Philippians 1.27). Dave holds a BS.Ed in Secondary Education from Millersville University and a ThM in New Testament from Dallas Seminary. He has spent 38 years serving the Lord in youth ministry, camping ministry, serving in local churches as elder and pastor, and on the boards of para-church ministries.

    Dave writes that as valuable as this training has been, none has shaped him more than his wife of 24 years, Sandy. It is her steady love, her quiet godliness, and her dogged commitment to prayer that God has used to pour grace into Dave’s life. Last, but not least, God gave them three children (Monica, Aubrey, and Ethan) to keep him grounded, to burst all his theories about raising children, and to fill his days with laughter. As a Bible teacher, his driving passion is to make the Scriptures come alive in a way that is simple and clear.

    In addition to plenary sessions with Dave, students will also have the opportunity to attend several classroom seminars, learning more about the various ministries and organizations in attendance. When not in sessions or seminars, students will be able to visit the many booths set up throughout the campus, gathering information and gaining contacts for ministry service, internships, and vocation.

    We are excited to have Dave as a speaker, and look forward to spending time with the numerous camps, ministries, and organizations in attendance.

  • O Holy Night


    “It was a dark and stormy night...” Such is the common opening line to a scary story. Interesting how we associate fear and darkness! The connection between them is common, in part, because we’re accustomed to the sad reality that bad things happen at night. Under the cover of darkness predators lurk, steal, and hurt others, hiding their misdeeds under a blanket of anonymity. And so nocturnal fears, even imagined ones, have become part of our humanity.

    But wonder of wonders: in the Christmas story God breaks through the darkness. It was at night, while Joseph dreamt, that an angel appeared and removed his fears and announced the coming Savior. It was at night, while shepherds tended their flocks that heaven pierced through the darkness with news of great joy for all humanity. At nightfall the angelic choir sang. It was at night that the wise men followed the guiding star that led them to the infant. When Jesus was born, God broke through the darkness of human fear and despair with resplendent light.

    God not only breaks into human history, however, He also pierces through the darkness of the human heart. Jesus declared "I am the light of the world” (John 8:12) and “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness" (John 12:46). It is because of that night that we are free from darkness and bondage. It is because of that night we have the light of Christ in our hearts. For it was on that night that Christ came to earth to save us from darkness and death.

    Thanks be to God for that Holy night!

  • Happy Thanksgiving from Emmaus!

    Happy Thanksgiving from Emmaus Bible College! We are grateful for many things: our students (current and former), our faculty/staff and board members, a good semester so far, encouraging signs of growth at the college, and much more. Most of all, we're thankful for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who "gave Himself as a ransom for all."

    As we gather together with our families and friends, whether verbally or just in our hearts, "let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!" (Psalm 95:1-2)
