Memphis Emmaus Community

EMMAUS is a method of Christian renewal in the church. Individuals recommended for Emmaus should be currently active in a local church and have a desire to deepen their faith and become closer to Christ in their discipleship. As a sponsor, you are required to provide information to the applicant to assist him/her in the decision to attend a weekend, to help him/her enter fully into the Emmaus fellowship after the weekend, to provide prayer and other support, and to provide transportation to Send Off and from Closing. Please be sure to encourage BOTH husband and wife to attend Emmaus. As a sponsor, your electronic signature is a covenant to a vital responsibility as a member of the Emmaus Community
