Our Story.

I (Jacob) took what was supposed to be a 3 month visit to Homer, Alaska in January of 2012. By September 14, 2013, local Alaskan, Samantha Arndt became my wife! After spending the next 3 years together in Alaska, we decided it was time to take the next step in our journey towards spiritual growth, and so we moved to Florida to enroll as students of the Emmaus School of Biblical Studies (ESBS). Having packed everything we owned in a small trailer, we made a month long drive from Homer, AK to Oviedo, FL. We took a leap of faith and followed our desire to know God deeper through his Word. As we arrived and immersed ourselves in our studies, God not only reached our hearts by giving new light and understanding to his words, but he opened a door that allowed us to step into a new role of leadership ministry here at the Emmaus School.


What is Emmaus Ministries?

“Emmaus Ministries exists to disciple and equip the body of Christ with the Word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ through: Inductive Bible study, authentic relationships, and community life.”

We know that Bible illiteracy can be a huge struggle for the Body of Christ and our sole mission is equip others with the tools and abilities to effectively study God’s Word for the rest of their lives.


How can you help partner with our vision and ministry?

-Emmaus Ministries is a non-profit organization that grows through the loving support of its partners. By joining the Emmaus staff, we are joining a team of full-time missionaries.  Because of this, we need people like you to be the pillars under our feet, to enable us to fulfill this work that God has called us to through financial support and prayers! Any support we receive will go directly into sustaining our lives here in this ministry as well as furthering our ability to minister to others. Our current goal is to raise a total monthly income of $3,000. As members of the living body of Christ, we need partners in our vision! We are looking for those who are willing to prayerfully commit to sponsor God’s call on our lives through regular donations.
