Educational Ministries Department
Our Educational Ministries students learn to integrate sound bible teaching and ministry philosophy to form a powerful approach to ministering to and caring for others in various contexts of ministry. Our programs are centered on a commitment to establish the Gospel in others as the foundation of a life of saving grace, real purpose and eternal hope. We accomplish this by knowing the Bible, loving people and equipping others to do the same.
Educational Ministries Graduates
My college experience was exceptional with high quality academics, valuable work experience, and various leadership opportunities. My time at Emmaus also challenged me to grow as an individual and deepen my relationship with Christ. The friendships I was able to develop with peers, mentors, professors, and the local church are a true blessing and something I will always cherish!
Emmaus has taught me the importance of using relationships to foster spiritual growth and maturity, as well as help foster a Biblical desire to see spiritually lost people become spiritually reconciled to Christ. Using relationships and Biblical truth have allowed me to bring the Word of God to a starving culture. As a youth pastor, I have to critically evaluate the physical and spiritual needs of my students; I would not have the ability to impact them for Christ at this level without Emmaus’ training.
