About Us

Dan River Emmaus began with our first Walk to Emmaus weekend held in Spring of 1998. Since then, we have held 79 Walk to Emmaus weekends attended by 2,612 participants, many of whom have remained active with Dan River Emmaus and participated as team members, behind-the-scenes volunteers, board members, sponsors, and prayer partners.

Where We're Located

Dan River Emmaus, based in Danville, Virginia, serves South-Central Virginia and the Northern Piedmont of North Carolina. Most of our participants come to us from Pittsylvania, Henry, and Patrick Counties in Virginia, and Guilford, Stokes, and Rockingham Counties in North Carolina.

Gatherings

Dan River Emmaus Community Gatherings are held on the first Saturday evening of each month. Locations vary, but are typically held in churches within our service area. For a listing of upcoming Gathering dates and locations, please visit our Community Gatherings Page.

Walks

Dan River Emmaus holds four Walk to Emmaus weekends per year, one each for men and women in the Spring and Fall of each year. Our Walks are held at the Cornerstone Conference and Resource Development Center [website] in Browns Summit, North Carolina, just north of Greensboro.
