The distinctive features of the Emmaus Scholars Program are:

Living in intentional, loving, and reflective Christian community, Emmaus Scholars seek to embody a life of scholarship, prayer, hospitality, and integral mission (a ministry of Christian witness and social responsibility). Following the biblical mandate to pursue justice, mercy, and reconciliation (Micah 6:8, 2 Cor 5:16-20), the Emmaus Scholars Program embodies the following distinctives: 
  • Moral Vision
  • Critical Thinking
  • Convicted Civility
  • Integrated Spiritual Life
  • Active Commitment to Justice
The Emmaus Scholars Program has been shaped by the biblical and theological work of Global South scholars. The presence of God’s life and witness throughout various cultures and peoples is a tremendous gift, source of joy, and witness to the reconciling peace of Christ. Accordingly, we believe that diversity is a wonderful gift of God, and offers us a key interpretive lens and window upon biblical justice. Students of color and international students are strongly encouraged to apply to become Emmaus Scholars!

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Emmaus Scholars live, pray, study, and serve together. Living in adjacent cottages, Emmaus Scholars learn how to live truly integrated lives: growing together through daily prayer, weekly community meals, monthly service-learning opportunities, shared cultural events, a joint mission trip, and research. We would love for you to be a part of the Emmaus Scholars Program. 

We invite you to take time to check out this site and prayerfully consider submitting an application to be part of this exciting and promising new program at Hope College.
