ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
A Fourth Day Challenge
The Walk to Emmaus offers today’s disciples an unparalleled opportunity to rediscover Christ’s presence in their lives, to gain a fresh understanding of God’s transforming grace, and to form meaningful friendships that encourage a lifetime of spiritual growth. It all starts with a 72-hour retreat but soon becomes a meaningful way of life—a Fourth Day journey of prayer and study, growing in Christian service and leadership, and being a light for the world.
The sole purpose of the Emmaus movement is to strengthen disciples for the renewal of the church. The Walk to Emmaus continues to be one of the most effective, formational and transformational programs available for personal renewal and leadership development. Since 1978, 1.4 million people have experienced this outpouring of love, benefitted from sound theological teaching and compassionate witness, and been given a spiritual boost that will last a lifetime. This happens when 346 local Emmaus communities, thousands of sponsors, and hundreds of teams come together to share God’s love.
Emmaus Ministries has grown and expanded to include Chrysalis (older teens) and Face to Face (boomers) and partners with Journey to the Table (young adults) and Discovery Weekend (middle school students) to offer spiritual support for people at every age.
Emmaus Ministries is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, and offered by The Upper Room, a global ministry dedicated to supporting the spiritual life of Christians.
The Upper Room invites people to create daily life with God.
