Walk to Emmaus   (Reference Luke 24:13-35)
The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal 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 servanthood and
encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to
being "a servant of all".
