Welcome to National Capital Area Emmaus

NCA Emmaus

What is National Capital Area Emmaus?
National Capital Area Emmaus (NCAE) is an ecumenical Christian Community that focuses on an individual’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The purpose of NCAE is to inspire, challenge, and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, and places of work. The purpose of NCAE is realized through a retreat weekend, as well as small accountability groups that provide support for community members as they continue their journey toward Jesus Christ, also known as the Fourth Day.
