We don’t have all the answers, but we love to ask the hard questions. Some are firm believers, some are doubters, some come for the good food. We talk about what’s important in life and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
We make a point to serve others and to give space for soul-tending and personal growth within the rhythms of school, work and everything else. We support each other, become friends, and have fun. Mostly we are a community that eats well, laughs a lot, is open with each other, and cares about people and the earth.
Emmaus is a ministry of ELCA Lutherans, in partnership with Episcopal Church USA, the United Church of Christ, and Methodist churches, welcoming of all perspectives. We are a Reconciling in Christ ministry, meaning we are open and affirming to all those in the LGBTQ+ community. Learn more about RIC here.
Pastor John Lund
John is around The Ark or Emmaus House during the week. If you have questions or issues surrounding family, relationships, grief, depression, sexuality, feeling lost, or anything else, he is there to offer non-judgmental listening and pastoral care. We also have trained and compassionate peer ministers who are here to listen, support and walk with other students through difficult times.
Where we are
We are fortunate to have 2 properties on the edge of the University of Montana campus. Emmaus House has a student center with a lending library and free Wi-Fi that is always open to students. Our offices are located in the Ark next door. You may stop by anytime during business hours, but there isn’t always a staff member present.
