Do you think that Bible college students sit and read the Bible all day? Do you imagine that Iowa is all cornfields? You may have the wrong perception of studying at Emmaus.
Our college is located in Dubuque, a safe, lovely city of rolling hills and five colleges located on the Mississippi River, half-way between Chicago and Des Moines. We are an accredited, bachelor’s degree-granting institution of higher learning. Our students come from 35 states and a number of foreign countries. They pick us because they can study the Bible and train for their professions at the same time. All of our students want to serve the Lord, but the majority does not go to seminary and enter ministry full time. All will be active in servant-leadership in their churches, however. We teach the Bible with an emphasis on New Testament principles. Sixty percent of our students are from the Plymouth Brethren assemblies, and forty percent from other evangelical churches.
