The Emmaus Model: Discipleship, Theological Education, and Transformation

Cover: The Emmaus Model

FROM THE FORWARD

The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is “To Make Christlike Disciples in the Nations”. Old paradigms and practices are changing. The church is growing rapidly in some world areas, often with a lack of sufficiently trained leaders to insure orthodoxy and coherency. To be more effective in this mission to which God calls us, this book provides a practical way whereby we can rethink our models and methods of education and ministerial preparation for the purpose of equipping God’s people for works of service that his body might be built up.

The vision and methodology shared in this book is that of an integrated educational system centered in reflective practice that engages everyone; from the person who is exploring faith in the local church, to the one seeking higher education through an educational institution. The Emmaus model as presented, introduces a new ethos of teaching as part of the discipleship process and of discipling as part of the educational process.
