Emmaus Biblical Seminary is an undergraduate theological education institution in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition.
Turnidge shared the vision with OMS missionary David Graffenberger, who, along with Marilyn Murphy (now Shaferly) and Gaudin Charles, founded the Emmaus Vocational Bible School in 1967. David Graffenberger also served as the first Director of Emmaus Vocational Bible School.
In 2000, after many years of successful training of Haitians for bi-vocational ministry, EVBS’ registration closed. In August 2001, under the direction of Dr. Bill Cooper, Emmaus’ registration reopened to accept theological students exclusively. At that time, the name of the school changed from Emmaus Vocational Bible School to Emmaus Biblical Seminary of Haiti.
Construction began on a new seminary campus in Saccenville in 2006. Construction was completed in 2009 and the campus was officially dedicated in January of 2010, the Monday before the earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince.
