News from the Board of Directors

Thank you for making the 200th Walk to Emmaus Celebration an Epic event!!!

If you missed the event, we missed you too. Please plan to attend one of the many events going on this summer, including Face to Face, Chrysalis, and one of the many gatherings being held around middle-Tennessee. If you have not been in contact with the community, let's reconnect! We need you, your talents, and your prayers to continue to offer the ministry of the Walk to Emmaus, Chrysalis, and Face to Face to build leaders for the local church.

Let us always remember that we are counting on Christ - and Christ is counting on us.

De Colores!

Face to Face


What is Face to Face?

 An adaptation of The Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face is specifically crafted to meet the needs and life-stages of older adults. The program seeks to invite men and women, ages 60 and older, to experience Jesus through an 8-session journey over anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks – depending on the setting - covering subjects such as discipleship, mission, grief, and end-of-life issues. The highly flexible schedule allows participants the freedom to engage in structured Bible study and prayer in a church setting or other community space. Led by clergy and lay leaders, Face to Face strengthens and renews followers of Christ and bolsters the spiritual life of individuals, families, and congregations everywhere. Face to Face is open to members of any Christian denomination who want to strengthen their spiritual lives, discover answers to their questions about faith, and are open to understanding the responsibility of living a Christian lifestyle. Encounters in the Nashville and surrounding areas  are currently being held twice a year at churches and retirement centers. Participation is open to all Christians 60 and above. Sponsors are helpful but not required for Face To Face. Pre-registration is required and participants must commit to attending all sessions.
