A Christian Community

As an authentic Christian community, our staff members enjoy the Christian fellowship, friendship and support of one another both in the areas of faith and team work.

Each week, all staff have an opportunity to gather together in Christian fellowship through devotions, prayer and worship. This is a time of refreshment and encouragement as we are reminded of God’s truth in the Bible and the testimony of others’ faith in Christ. We believe this dedicated time is essential to maintaining and reinforcing our core belief that Jesus Christ is Lord, both corporately and individually.

More than a place of employment, Emmaus Christian College provides a place of purpose; founded on the Bible. Many of our staff feel called to work at Emmaus as an outworking of their faith; a ministry to young people.
