Emmaus Bible College is proud to be related to a variety of ministries that serve the Lord's people. Some of these ministries are sponsored by the College and some are ministries led by our faculty members and friends.
Emmaus Media Ministries
The Media Ministries department works to provide audio and video recorded content from Emmaus Bible College to the public. Recordings of classes, conferences, and special events are free to access on YouTube, and audio content is free through SoundCloud and other listening apps like Apple Podcasts, Tunein, and Stitcher.
Iron Sharpens Iron
Many of the issues facing the Church today are common to our local assemblies as well. As a movement, although we value the autonomy of the local church, we also recognize the interdependence of our assemblies, and desire to work together as we identify solutions to the issues we face. Iron Sharpens Iron is an annual conference for sharpening one another's vision and skills for building the local church. Visit www.isi.emmaus.edu to learn more about this year's conference.
Journey Magazine was a magazine published by the college for nearly 15 years. The goal of this publication was to disseminate Emmaus news to the friends, alumni, faculty, staff and students that make up our constituency as well as to serve as a forum for discussion among believers in New Testament assemblies. Through Journey, Emmaus sought to provide a biblical and balanced perspective on various issues confronting our churches and offer helpful suggestions for addressing them. Articles were written to encourage believers in the work of building the local church, engagement in evangelism, participation in para church ministry and other spiritual disciplines. Although we are no longer producing new issues of Journey magazine, you can view past issues here.
Women in the Word
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. 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: (1) To challenge and encourage women with in-depth study of the Bible and practical application to life. (2) To enhance fellowship among old friends and new around the person of Christ and love for God's Word. (3) To encourage a spirit of praise, thanksgiving, and joy through inspiring music and testimony. Visit wiw.emmaus.edu for more information.
