by Ben Kerns, North American Director

God is on the move in North America. All across the continent I have heard stories and signs of Him working in marvelous ways. While this should not surprise me, it is still amazing how the God of all power and might would come down to love broken and fragile people like us, and want to use us to do His work!


The vision of Emmaus International in North America is to see hearts and lives transformed through Jesus Christ by the study of God’s Word. With this in mind, I took on my new position as North American Director to help others thrive in their service to the Lord. My role is to clear the path, and free up those that want to run with us in Christ.


There are many ways that I believe we can accomplish our vision. We have a rich foundation in our historic, 75-year-old Emmaus Correspondence School courses. There are thousands of testimonies of God using the courses to bring the gospel to unbelievers, and providing growth for believers in knowing God’s Word, and living it out.


After 75 years of development, we were able to develop The Emmaus Road! The Emmaus Road is a powerful 60-course curriculum that takes people from the important foundational truths of the Bible (and why they matter today), to the deeper mysteries of God’s truth that will open eyes and leave hearts burning with passion for Jesus Christ. The Emmaus Road is a seven-module, or seven-mile, journey that takes you deeper into God’s Word with each Mile Marker you take. There is practical application spread throughout the curriculum.


We believe so strongly in The Emmaus Road as an effective tool for life transformation that we have highly discounted all 7 Mile Markers, and online orders over $25 also include free shipping. We want to take away as many “road blocks” as possible, so that thousands of believers can start walking The Emmaus Road together.


I love people, and Emmaus International also desires to connect and inspire people to gather and work together for Christ in His church. Overseas, the Emmaus courses have been used in physical schools, conferences, and training centers for people to gather and learn more about God’s Word. Applying this model to North America, we began to see God leading us to start a discipleship training program.


Our goal is to create a replicable training program that could be used across the country to teach people the Bible, train people in evangelism and discipleship, and inspire people to live lives pleasing to the Lord. I believe that God is preparing something that He can use—to see people come to know Him for the first time, and then to make disciples that go and make more disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations!


There are signs of a renewed revival across North America, and many people are asking how they can partner with us; the amazing thing about all of this is that anyone can! I love to see applications coming in of people volunteering to be Emmaus Connectors, and others starting their own personal journey down The Emmaus Road. You can learn about all of these programs on our website.
