     The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual 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 servant hood and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being a “servant of all.”
    
     The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God’s grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church.  The course is wrapped in prayer and  Meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion.  The “Emmaus Community,” made up of those who have attended an Emmaus weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self giving.  The Emmaus Walk typically begins Thursday Evening.  Men and Women attend separate weekends. The 3-day journey is held at the Montfort Spiritual Center,  Saxon Avenue, Bay Shore, NY.

     During and after the three days, Emmaus leaders encourage participants to meet regularly in small groups.  The members of the small groups challenge and support one another in Faithful living.  Participants seek to Christianize their environments of family, job and community through the ministry of their congregations.  The three-day Emmaus Experience and follow-up groups strengthen and renew Christian people as disciples of Jesus Christ and as active members of the body of Christ in mission to the world.

     The Upper Room, a ministry unit of the General Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church, sponsors the Walk to Emmaus and offers it through local Emmaus groups around the world.  Although connected through The Upper Room to the United Methodist Church, The Walk to Emmaus is ecumenical.
