The Walk to Emmaus is for people who have the stamina to be active for 72 hours and don’t mind sleeping in a camp setting and sharing a bedroom with others.
The Walk to Emmaus is held each spring at the Glacier Presbyterian Camp on Flathead Lake. Attendees must have a sponsor who has attended a Walk to Emmaus or Face to Face Encounter.

Face to Face Classes
What is the “Face to Face” Program?
“Face to Face” began in Emmaus Communities across the United States in 2015. The model was authorized by the International Office of The Walk to Emmaus at Upper Room Ministries. Each year since, new groups join in this adventure. “Face to Face” is a complete spiritual experience in the spirit of The Walk to Emmaus, designed specifically for seniors. All the core elements of Emmaus are included. The program seeks to invite men and women, ages 65 and older, to experience Jesus through a four-session journey, covering subjects such as mission, grief, end-of-life issues, and discipleship. Led by clergy and lay leaders, sessions feature Biblical theology, tasty refreshments, lots of laughs, and several surprising personal encounters and memorable spiritual breakthroughs. Also, we shall worship, sing, joke with one another, experience an avalanche of God’s grace, and talk about no one but Jesus and ourselves—together. The highly flexible schedule allows participants the freedom to engage in structured Bible study and prayer in a church setting.
We have held three Face to Face Encounters with Christ since it began. They were at Lakeside, Corvallis and Missoula. Watch for details of when and where the next one will be held.
“Face to Face” is open to members of any Christian denomination who wish to rediscover Christ’s presence and want to strengthen their spiritual lives.
