The Walk to Emmaus® is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant to all".
The Walk to Emmaus® gets its name from the story in Luke 24:13-35, which provides the central image for the three-day expirience and follow-up. Luke tells the story of that first Easter afternoon when the risen Christ appeared to the two disciples who were walking together along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. Like Christians and churches who are blinded by preoccupation with their own immediate difficulties, these two disciples sadness and hopelessness seemed to prevent them from seeing God's redemptive purpose in things that had happened.
