Wondering what the walk to Emmaus is? The Walk to Emmaus, is a Journey with Christ (as shared in Luke 24:13-35), while getting to know a group of wonderful like-minded Christian men and women (the men’s and women’s walks are held on separate weekends). It is a three day weekend beginning on a Thursday evening and running through Sunday afternoon; open to members of any Christian denomination and is for the development of Christian leaders who have a desire to strengthen their spiritual lives, may have unanswered questions about their faith, understand that being Christian involves responsibility and are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner.
The weekends revolve around discussions that center around fifteen talks given by laity and clergy and these talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian community, and how it expresses itself in the world. In addition to the life changing talks, the weekends are also filled with fellowship, worship, singing, laughing, learning, praying, reflecting and communion. You will leave with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace filled service and leadership.
