Emmaus is a Bible and discipleship school with a variety of ways to engage with scripture. While the Emmaus School of Biblical Studies (SBS) is our core ministry we offer two other programs that offer different levels of work and time commitment.
Our 10 month SBS 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.
The Biblical Narrative Series a limited commitment journey through the grand narrative of the Bible in 10 monthly lectures.
The Biblical Literacy Seminars are short term lectures taken to your church or ministry reflecting on the Bible, its role in our lives, and how we can study it.
Biblical Narrative Series
The Biblical Narrative Series takes participants on a journey through the Bible alongside our biblical studies students. This monthly series tells the story of the Bible through ten evening lectures which provide an overview for understanding the Bible as a whole. These lectures will also explore the themes & setting of the books which make up each part of the story. The Biblical Narrative Series is designed to be open to the public and accessible to all types of learners. No experience or outside assignments required.
Biblical Literacy Seminars
Emmaus partners with the vision of local churches and ministries to see every believer equipped with essential tools to engage their Bible. The Biblical Literacy program consists of three Seminars: Why the Bible Matters - The essentials for Christians today, Bible Overview - The grand story of the Bible beginning to end, and How to Study the Bible - Learn to observe, interpret & apply the Scriptures for yourself. This program is brought directly to the local church through seminars and retreats designed with the participating community in mind.
School of Biblical Studies
From August - May, students in the School of Biblical Studies journey through the entirety of the Biblical narrative, utilizing the Inductive Method (IBS). This 20 hour per week program integrates academic and spiritual development through one-on-ones, weekly worship and community meals. On-campus housing is available for students desiring a truly immersive and communal experience. Students also have the option to pursue a seminary education or an internship in a local church.
