Clubs and Organizations
At Emmaus, we believe that learning happens outside the classroom as well in. Therefore, Emmaus invites you to explore and share your talents, skills, and, interests with the Emmaus community. Getting involved is the best thing you can do to develop new friendships, build new experiences, and make the most of your educational experience. Below are just some of the ways our students get involved.
- Student Missionary Fellowship
Student Missionary Fellowship (SMF) is a campus organization which exists to promote awareness of, prayer for and interest in missionary activities in the Unites States and around the world through guest speakers, prayer groups, special programs and community outreach.
- Women's Chapel Committee
The purpose of the Women’s Chapel Committee is to provide opportunities for female students to teach and encourage one another through worship, prayer, and devotion. The Women’s Chapel Committee organizes two women’s chapels and one women’s event each semester.
- Campus Community Group Leaders
Campus Community Groups (CCGs) seek to create an atmosphere for spiritual growth through accountability, prayer, open discussion and loving community. CCGs are led by fellow students who are mentored by faculty/staff members and under the direction of the Director of Campus Life.
- Resident Assistants
Student leaders are selected by application and interview to serve and support their fellow students by providing encouragement and guidance in their college experience.
- Student Resident Directors
The Student Resident Directors (SRD) provide supervision of the residence hall community while promoting resident student development and community life consistent with the mission and policies of Emmaus Bible College.
- Student Union
The Emmaus Student Union exists to promote community and unity amongst the student body. They do this by programming events throughout the school year that foster students' growth in their friendships and strengthens their connection within the campus community.
- Student Chapel Speakers
Every Friday, upper classmen have the opportunity to prepare and deliver a message for the student body. These student speakers operate under the direction of a Bible faculty member. They critique one another, offer constructive feedback, and evaluate the messages after their delivery in Chapel. This past year student speakers spoke from 2 Timothy and selected Psalms.
- Chapel Praise Teams
Students are encouraged to participate in Chapel music by joining a praise team. These teams are student led and operated and usually consist of 3-4 musicians and vocalists. There is a wide variety of instrumental talent, from piano and guitar to drums and violin. The Chapel praise teams exist to encourage the student body through worship in song.
- Emmaus Choirs
There are several different opportunities for students of varying skill levels to join a choir or singing group at Emmaus. You can learn more about these groups and even purchase CDs from our Emmaus Ensemble by visiting the music department page.
- Emmaus Student Ambassadors
The mission of Emmaus Student Ambassadors is to partner globally with the Office of Enrollment Services to develop a sense of collegiate pride on-campus and a global awareness of Emmaus off-campus radiating from the Dubuque community outward.
- Yearbook Team
The yearbook program is a scholastic journalism program whose goal is to create a print monument to what God has done at Emmaus Bible College each school year.
- Academic Department Committees
Within their academic major, students serve on committees and clubs to assist in planning and organizing department events, to offer insight to faculty within the department, and for common fellowship.
