This research project attempts to determine whether the Walk to Emmaus, as only one medium, correlates to the strength of a Christian‘s religious faith. The research project incorporated a quantitative research design using three instruments for crossvalidation purposes and a researcher-designed demographic questionnaire. The three research instruments used were the Santa Clara Strength of Religious Faith Questionnaire, the Duke Religion Index, and the Age Universal Religious Orientation Survey. The three quantitative instruments used tested the consistency of the results obtained through the different research instruments. The demographic instrument sought personal information concerning age, religious faith history, gender, and participation with the Walk to Emmaus.
The analysis of the data for this research project indicates a statistically significant correlation to the strength of a Christian‘s religious faith scores for those who have attended a Walk to Emmaus. Whether the strength of Christian religious faith is an inherent propensity or strength formed through life relationships, the significance is obvious. Further research needs done in the area of Christian religious faith in order to identify specific causes.
