 Village Encounter – International Emmaus

Be part of the inaugural event! As we continue to provide opportunities for ongoing Christian spiritual formation, the Emmaus Ministries International Office invites all communities to partner with us for the launch of our newest online offering, Village Encounter.

Village Encounter provides a digital space for adults to experience God’s grace in transformative ways. This new offering seeks to renew Christians in their faith and to further inspire, challenge, and equip them for Christian leadership. The online experience begins with an invitation to journey with the risen Lord and continues, through its six sessions, to move participants to deeper levels of commitment as disciples of Christ.

In addition to the six sessions, the participants will meet in small groups that encourage their personal Christian growth and spur on Christian action. Ultimately, as is the case with all other Emmaus Ministries “graduates,” participants will have the opportunity to take part of the activities of their local Emmaus Ministries community.

In preparations for the inaugural event in May 2022, the International Office is developing a team of clergypersons and lay leaders who will partner in ministry with Village Encounter participants. We are grateful for the almost 50 volunteer team members!

Now we also would like to invite existing communities to be part of this ground-breaking experience by sponsoring participants at a cost of $40 per person for the entire event. You can register for the inaugural online experience here.

The Emmaus Ministries Village Encounter schedule will be as follows:

  • Orientation – Evening of Thursday, May 5
  • Session 1 – Evening of Friday, May 6
  • Session 2 – Morning of Saturday, May 7
  • Session 3 – Evening of Friday, May 13
  • Session 4 – Morning Saturday, May 14
  • Session 5 – Evening of Friday, May 20
  • Session 6 – Morning of Saturday, May 21

All sessions will average between three or four hours in length.
