Parent's Weekend
Israel Chavez- Dean of Student Development

To the parents of our students at Emmaus Bible College,

The students are settling into their rooms, buying their books, and 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/Family Weekend here at Emmaus Bible College. Parent’s weekend is scheduled for September 29th-30th. This weekend gives you a chance to come back to the college, visit 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 here at Emmaus. We would love for you to come and experience Emmaus yourself if you are able!

The cost of the weekend will be $35 per adult and $25 for children ages 4-12 (children 3 and under are free). This includes 4 meals as well as events but does not include accommodations. You can register by completing the online form here. You can also contact Hannah Leavitt (Director of Residence Life) at 563-588- 8000 ext. 3015, 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. If you are interested in coming for the weekend, please take a look at different lodging options by visiting the Travel Dubuque website at We look forward to hearing back from you soon. Take care and God bless.
