In 2015, Emmaus School of Biblical Studies relocated from Western North Carolina to Central Florida and our new base at Canterbury Retreat Center. It was at that time that we rebranded as Emmaus Ministries to reflect a growing heart to equip all Christ-followers with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Inductive Bible Study and Authentic Relationships. In addition to our School of Biblical Studies, Emmaus now provides Biblical Literacy Seminars for churches, designed to help believers understand and connect to their Bible. Along with this, this past year we launched our new Biblical Narrative Series, which invites people who work during the day to be a student of the Scriptures through this series of evening classes which survey the history and heart of every book of the Bible.

In the midst of all the blessings we have experiencing these last few years, we have lacked a consistent, intentional, set-aside space for us to provide Biblical training, community discipleship, and for the staff to work together in the ongoing development of the ministry. This has lead to a semi-mobile classroom, unpredictable workspace, and limited ability to develop new programs. This is why it is such an exciting time for Emmaus, as Canterbury has now provided us with the opportunity to lease an 800 sq.ft. building, which we can set up as a much needed center for training, discipleship, and ministry development.

Over the month of July we are raising $12,000 which will help cover the cost of leasing this new space for the upcoming year as well as equipping it as an ideal center for training the Church to engage their Bibles and follow Jesus. Please prayerfully consider investing in the life and ministry of Emmaus as we enter this exciting new season here in Central Florida!

Greeting Emmaus friends and family. Julia and I are thrilled with what God is doing in and through Emmaus Ministries in Central Florida. Now more than ever, Emmaus needs the support of it’s alumni and friends. Julia and I are committed monthly supporters, and we’re making a lump sum gift to help offset the increase in lease expenses at Canterbury as they set-up this new classroom. I am asking you to join in that effort with us through a special one-time contribution. There is no better way to impact the body of Christ than to send young people into every church equipped with a solid knowledge of the Gospel and God’s word. That is what Emmaus has always been about, and they can’t do it without us. Lets partner with them in this amazing ministry!
