National event for churches and groups to simultaneously study God's Word through Emmaus International courses.
We want to encourage groups of believers to study God's word, to fellowship around God's word, and to keep each other accountable to faithful Bible study. We hope that participation in the challenge will result in spiritual growth in individuals, and promote committed Bible study in churches across the United States.
In our 77th year of ministry, we're excited to celebrate the 12th Anniversary of the Emmaus Bible Challenge (formerly the Bible Book Challenge). We invite you to join hundreds of Christians and churches in studying God's word together through our course The Story of the King authored by Paul Bramsen.
Challenge yourself in studying God's word.
Challenge each other in your groups.
Connect with other Christians around the country.
The Coordinator acts as the team leader and as the interface between the team and Emmaus International.
