School of Biblical Studies

The Emmaus School of Biblical Studies is our core ministry. Emmaus is a Bible and discipleship school with a variety of ways to engage with scripture. Students learn to observe, interpret, and apply the Bible using the Inductive Bible study method, studying the text in its historical and literary context.

Our 10 month school was formed through a partnership with Youth With a Mission’s School of Biblical Studies International. Emmaus further refined the school in 2017 to allow greater flexibility for students to intern in a local church or recieve a seminary at a partnering school  Emmaus exists to offer a curriculum similar to a YWAM SBS to students who have not taken the Discipleship Training School required by a typical YWAM SBS School. The requirements of the 10-month course are designed to enrich the student both academically and relationally.
