  • A WORD FROM
    PRESIDENT BOOM

    2017 is drawing to a close, and we can truly say it has been a year of continued blessings in the lives of our students. Thank you for your prayer partnership and the financial support that allowed us to provide almost $1.7 million in tuition assistance to our students.

     

    We are grateful that our student population has been growing year by year; we remain steadfastly focused on teaching Bible as the core of our mission. We firmly believe that the most important distinction at Emmaus Bible College is our passion to entrust the Word of God to this present generation of faithful students, “. . . who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim 2:2)

     

    Our desire is to sustain a Christ-centered, relational learning environment for our students, and to see them grow in wisdom and stature before God and in relation to others. Please pray with us that we will be faithful to our calling and that God will provide for this work long into the future.

     

    Several key facts for thanksgiving and prayer:

     

    Enrollment continues to grow – this past fall we enrolled 275 students in total – 248 full-time and 27 part-time.

     

    In 2017, 106 graduates received degrees, diplomas or certificates, including B.S. degrees, Associate of Arts, and our one-year Certificate in Biblical Studies.

     

    For the second year in a row, we have been recognized as #1 among the top 50 Bible Colleges in the USA, based on enrollment, retention, graduation and job placement rates.

     

    Through careful budgeting and strong support from our donor base, we made significant progress on closing our budget gap last year. We ended the year in much better financial condition than we began, and anticipate a healthy 2018.

     

    Thank you once again for standing with us in support of Biblical higher education.

    Student Body President, Senior

    The past three years at Emmaus Bible College have been such a huge blessing to me. Here faculty, staff, and fellow students have been a huge blessing as they have helped me grow in my faith and knowledge of the Bible. Most importantly, they have helped me know God better while seeking to grow into a deeper relationship with Him each and every day. Emmaus has challenged me and provided the opportunity to love and serve others, and in this bring glory to God in my studies and activities. The important reminder that I constantly need to keep in mind is that at the end of the day we all need to put our differences aside and strive to love and work with each other so that the name of our God may be exalted.

     

    My dreams and passion to help and care for individuals and communities, and most importantly to serve the Lord, are becoming more of a reality. Thank you for supporting students of Emmaus Bible College, for making dreams a possibility and providing the opportunity for us to study the word of God alongside a professional major.
