Parents Weekend/Alumni Homecoming


To the parents of our students at Emmaus Bible College,

The students have settled into their rooms and are adjusting to life here at Emmaus. We appreciate your support and willingness to entrust your child to us for this year, and realize the honor it is for us to take care of your most precious asset…your children.

With the beginning of the college year in full swing, we would like to take an opportunity to invite you back for our Parent’s Weekend here at Emmaus Bible College. Parent’s weekend is scheduled for November 1-3. This gives you a chance to come back to the college, visit the same classes with your son or daughter, meet the friends that they’ve made, and see what life for your child at Emmaus is like, as well as get a taste of the heritage that your son or daughter has tapped into at Emmaus. We would love for you to come if you can, and experience Emmaus yourself!

The cost of the weekend will be $25 per person (including children). This includes the In the Round Concert and three meals (Friday Lunch, Friday Dinner, and Saturday lunch) but does not include accommodations. Extra meal tickets can be purchased the day you arrive. You can register by completing the online form here. You could also contact Laura Strautmann (Director of Residence Life) at 563-588-8000 ext. 1112, or email her at It will help us greatly to know how many people will be able to attend the weekend. 

We hope you’ll be able to come out to Emmaus and have a good time with your child. We look forward to hearing back from you soon. Take care and God bless.
