Building the Kingdom.

Emmaus University exists to develop Christ-like leaders for the transformation of Haiti. We do this through undergraduate and graduate-level training rooted in the Wesleyan-holiness tradition. EU is committed to making disciples, church planters, and transformative leaders as well as academic rigor and a world-class education.









Help Us Change a Nation.

To change a nation, change its leaders. Emmaus University (formerly Emmaus Biblical Seminary) has a rich, 50-year history of mentoring and discipling students to become holy leaders in the image of Christ. A year at Emmaus costs students about $500US. Because of the economic hardship in Haiti, Emmaus University substantially subsidizes student tuition and fees so that students can afford it. Your investment will help change a nation for the Gospel. You can make a difference.


Our pursuit of academic excellence flows from our commitment to Scripture’s mandate to love the Lord God with all of our minds (Mark 12:30) and from the Bible’s emphasis on the importance of theological education for those called to ministry.

Bachelor of Theology

The BTh Program, by emphasizing the centrality of the Word of God, prepares students to be a witness for Christ in the culture that they are called to minister to (primarily Haitian culture) and the contemporary world by giving students a thorough grounding in the truth of God’s word and teaching the Bible in the context of its setting, demonstrating the relevance of the authority of the Bible today. The BTh program also focuses on developing leaders for the ministry of discipleship and formation—understanding the biblical, educational, and organizational principles at the foundations of effective ministry.

Master of Education

Developing Haiti through the education of its citizenry  requires a greater number of qualified teachers and administrators. To that end, the MEIA degree will prepare persons to serve as teachers and administrators in the public and private schools of Haiti. However, the MEIA program will be unique in that it will prepare practicing teachers and administrators to supervise teachers, which will undoubtedly raise the level of teaching and learning in the classroom. The focus on supervision of teachers will not only enhance the quality of Haiti’s teachers, it will also increase a school’s ability to educate Haiti’s citizenry more effectively.
