Equip the Mind

Academic Classes

We equip you to be a Christian scholar through our partnership with Knox Theological Seminary. Knox is a fully accredited evangelical seminary with world-class faculty.  Whether you’re seeking a fully accredited degree or want to audit classes to be a life-long learner, Emmaus has something for you.

Equip the Hands

Apprenticeship and Outreach

Unlike traditional seminary models, we prepare you for ministry in the context of ministry—a thriving local church. As a student, you will gain practical ministry experience through local church apprenticeships. As a result of this hands-on training, you will be ready to impact your community with the gospel through local church ministry.

Equip the Heart

Mentoring Communities

A program of practical skills and academic instruction is vital to equip ministers, but it is incomplete. You will be placed in a mentoring community where you, with the help of a one on one mentor, will be equipped to grow toward your full potential and serve with your whole heart.
