What is Emmaus?

The “Walk to Emmaus” name is drawn from a scriptural passage from the Gospel of Luke in which two travelers, leaving Jerusalem and walking to the town of Emmaus following the Resurrection, encountered Christ, but did not recognize Him until he later revealed Himself to them.

About Us

Dan River Emmaus began with our first Walk to Emmaus weekend held in Spring of 1998.

Since then, we have held 77 Walk to Emmaus weekends attended by 2544 participants, many of whom have remained active with Dan River Emmaus and participated as team members, behind-the-scenes volunteers, board members, sponsors, and prayer partners.
