missions

Emmaus Church exists to see God glorified and churches multiplied

by declaring and displaying the gospel. 

  • Kansas City Northland

    We often say that Emmaus is a church in the northland for the northland. This does not mean that we care less about the rest of our city. We are actively serving and have members scattered all over the Kansas City metro. But our corporate focus is that as God spreads our members throughout the northland, the gospel would reach every corner of our region. We currently have members who live in Parkville, Tiffany Springs, Gladstone, Maplewoods, Weatherby Lake, Briarcliff, Riverside, North Kansas City, Smithville, and many south of the river as well (Lee's Summit, Raytown, Downtown, Midtown, KCK, and Johnson County). Wherever you live  is our mission field. Our people are called to live their lives in humble grace and service as they seek to declare and display the gospel in their neighborhoods, their schools, their workplaces, and their gathering spots. Will you live on mission with us in your community? 

  • Refugees of Kansas City

    Emmaus desires to be a people who deeply love and care for the refugee. It is our desire to offer practical and needed service along with the hope of the gospel  to those who are hurting, relocated, and alone. 
    We have partnered with Crossworld and RefugeKC to offer a holistic service to refugee families that includes ESL, school tutoring, childcare, and friendships. If you are interested in volunteering to come alongside refugees with us, then please take a moment to read and fill out the form below.

  • Genova, Italy

    The Genova metroplex is home to over 1.5 million people with less than 1% professing to follow Jesus.  Through Acts29, Emmaus has partnered with INCONTRO CON GESÙ (Jesus Encounter), a church plant in Genova. Our partnership exists with the goal of seeing church planting churches started all across northern Italy. 

    How can you join what God is doing in Italy? 

    1. Pray for Francesco and Claudia (church planters) and the gospel work in Genova. Pray for gospel conversations to yield fruit of salvation. Pray for those whom their church is serving through "Masters Hand" (a ministry to serve the hungry, homeless, and hurting of Genova).
