About The Emmaus Conference
The Emmaus Conference is an annual “free conference” with speakers and reactors from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS), Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LC-MS). The Emmaus Conference is held in the Pacific Northwest city of Tacoma, Washington at Parkland Evangelical Lutheran Church’s facilities. Lutheran pastors, church workers, and concerned laypeople are welcome to attend.
The purpose of The Emmaus Conference is to provide an opportunity for Christians and interested others in the Pacific Northwest to gather together for learning and discussion. The Conference is dedicated to declaring the truths of God’s Holy Word as they are explained in the Book of Concord of 1580 and will make every effort to conform to that explanation because it agrees with Holy Scripture. As a result, The Emmaus Conference seeks to carry on the spirit of the Lutheran free conferences of the previous two centuries as a way by which the truth of God’s Law and Gospel might be proclaimed for the glory of God and the good of all.
