Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!" (Psalm 95:1-2)

  • MoveIn Organization Visiting Emmaus

    Emmaus Bible College is privileged to have Brian and family, with the MoveIn organization, visiting our campus on Thursday, October 23. They will be on the Emmaus campus all day, sharing with students (in class and out) concerning the mission and vision of MoveIn.

    MoveIn is an effort to see praying teams of Christians moving into some of the most broken neighborhood patches in Toronto and beyond. Believers move in to unsafe neighborhoods, not in spite of the high crime rates, high poverty rate, low standards of living, and a disproportionate representation of Christ, but because of it. With a cup of cold water in one hand and the good news in the other, they pray that the communities they enter will discover Christ’s love and pass Him on. In some cases, churches are planted. In others, missionaries are raised up. In every case, they pray for Christ’s “Kingdom come” to lives and communities from “[Toronto] … to the ends of the earth.” 1

    While Brian is at Emmaus, students will be able to learn not only about the MoveIn organization, but also about opportunities to serve and minister with MoveIn in Toronto and abroad. For more information, stop by the MoveIn booth in the Emmaus Upper Commons on Thursday, September 23. Also be sure to watch the video testimony of a "moveiner" below.

  • 2nd Annual Archaeology Lecture: "The Search for King Solomon"

    On October 28, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the David A. Glock Auditorium, Emmaus Bible College will sponsor the 2nd annual Archaeology Lecture Series. The event is FREE. No tickets are required. This year’s guest will be Dr. Steven Ortiz, Director of the Tandy Institute for Archaeology, and Associate Professor of Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. His lecture is entitled “The Search for King Solomon: Recent Excavations at Tel Gezer.”

    The Bible paints a picture of a robust kingdom centered in Jerusalem and led by Solomon. This kingdom exerted power over the whole southern Levant during the Iron age. It was eventually destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. This presentation will detail the latest evidence uncovered in Israel that contributes to our understanding of Solomon and his kingdom.

    Dr. Ortiz brings over 30 years of archaeological field experience. He has lived in Israel and now spends most of his summers there. He is currently the co-director and principal investigator at Tel Gezer in southern Israel.The project is now in its eighth season and is focused on understanding borders and state formation in Judah in the Iron age (1200-586 B.C.).

    Dr. Ortiz’s expertise is the use of archaeology to reconstruct the history of ancient Israel and the Second Temple Period (New Testament). Dr. Ortiz has contributed to several books and monographs: History of Ancient Israel, Do Historical Matters Matter to Faith?, Critical Issues in Early Israelite History, Buried Hopes or Risen Savior, Archaeological and Historical Studies in honor of Amihai Mazar, and The Future of Biblical Archaeology. He is currently working on the publications of Tel Gezer as well as a book entitled Intersections of Archaeology and Biblical Interpretation.

    In addition to his scholarly pursuits, Dr. Ortiz is passionate about teaching the relevance of historical and cultural context in the proper interpretation of scripture. He is a frequent supply preacher and conference speaker. He has contributed to over 100 radio interviews, newspaper articles, and denominational publications.

  • Women in the Word Conference

    More than twenty-five years ago, godly women of vision in the Dubuque area established an annual conference designed to encourage and challenge women through God-honoring, Bible-focused ministry along with inspiring music and great fellowship.  Emmaus Bible College is honored to continue this legacy, serving new generations of women who love God’s Word and thirst to know it more. 

    We’re excited to invite you to our first annual Women in the Word conference, Friday and Saturday, November 7-8 at Emmaus! Women in the Word Ministries claims Luke 8:15 as its theme verse. In the Parable of the Sower, Christ himself explains that those who receive the seed in good soil “are the ones who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience” (Luke 8:15, ESV). Our objectives for the conference are:

    • To challenge and encourage women with in-depth study of the Bible and practical application to life.
    • To enhance fellowship among old friends and new around the person of Christ and love for God's Word.
    • To encourage a spirit of praise, thanksgiving, and joy through inspiring music and testimony.

    Our speaker is Ruth Schwertfeger, a gifted teacher and, more importantly, student of the Word. Her topic is Encountering Christ: The Transforming Power of the Living Word. Our very special musical guests are Shelley Breen, Denise Jones, and Leigh Cappillino, better known as Point of Grace! Their new album A Thousand Little Things reminds us of the many blessings God has given and continues to give. Point of Grace will be leading music for the conference and closing our time together with a concert in the Emmaus Marble Chapel!

    Please join us! Make plans with friends in your local area to spend the weekend in Dubuque—studying the Word, singing with Point of Grace, and enjoying fun and fellowship with friends, old and new. The cost of the conference is $50, which includes Saturday lunch at Emmaus, the Point of Grace concert on Saturday evening, and even some special treats like Eric’s Famous Scones and Caramel Apples from Betty Jane Candies! You won’t want to miss it!

  • Emmaus Students Return Home Safely From Excavation and Study Tour of Israel

    Eight Emmaus Bible College students and recent graduates travelled to Israel under the leadership of Bible Department Chair Dr. Steven H. Sanchez to participate in the 2014 Tel Gezer Excavations. The trip was designed to allow the students to participate in hands on archaeological work, as well as learn the history and geography of Israel while in the land.

    This program is a unique feature of our new Archaeology minor and involves four weeks of digging, including weekend tours throughout the country. In addition to getting their hands dirty with 3000 year-old dirt, students travelled from Israel's northern border with Lebanon and Syria all the way south to Eilat on the Red Sea. They swam in the Mediterranean and dipped their feet in the Jordan River.

    Of her participation, one student says, "The trip to Israel was an amazing experience that has impacted my life dramatically. Being in the land of the people that God has chosen made me reflect on how he has moved throughout history to keep a remnant despite unfathomable odds against them. The trip gave me the ability to better understand the geography of the land in a way that maps and pictures can only begin to. Reading the Psalms of Ascent as we drove from the plains, through the foothills, and up towards Jerusalem will be a memory that stays with me."

    Admittedly the trip was not without its concerns. While the team was there, the Israel Defense Forces launched operation Protective Edge. Although they were never in any real danger, the experience was new for many and caused them to look to the Lord for their protection. They are thankful that He is our defender. The fact that the dig did not shut down during the conflict caught the attention of the Jerusalem Post, which published an article about the Tel Gezer Team. The game board highlighted in the article (and seen above) was expertly excavated by Nichole Dirks, EBC grad of the class of 2013.

    We praise the Lord for an incredibly productive dig, a fruitful learning experience, and for the team's safety while there. To learn more, click here for the official press release from the 2014 dig season.
