Who We Are:
So Cal
Walk to Emmaus

       The Walk to Emmaus is a world-wide program of the Upper Room Ministries.

 

      It is a nondenominational program that develops Christian disciples and leaders by inspiring, challenging, and equipping active adult church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, workplaces, and communities.

 

     It combines a variety of spiritual practices, worship and bible study that are at times stimulating, searching and powerful.

     It  also benefits less active members who are seeking to renew a relationship with God, grow spiritually, or discover firmer foundations for their lives.

 

     Through the Walk to Emmaus, the Pilgrims return to their respective churches and helps them to become healthy and vital congregations with new and renewed discipleship skills.  In this way local churches benefit from this roundtable as a means of growing disciples and as a tool for developing leaders for their own disciple-making ministry.

 

     The form of this Weekend is a 72-hour short course in Christianity that is wrapped in prayer, praise & worship, and signs of sacrificial service.

 

     It impacts each Pilgrim's life and so continues for the rest of their lives.  

 

     An important part of this life-long faith life are follow-up small groups that, along with the local church’s robust offerings, contribute to participants’ ongoing growth in grace.

     "Every day, they met together in the temple and ate in their homes. They shared food with gladness and simplicity.

     They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone.

     The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved."

(Acts 2:46-47 CEB)

     Your application to be a participant on a So. Cal. Walk to Emmaus Weekend, is the first step into a full, three-day weekend devoted to Christ in order to strengthen your walk with the Lord. 

     The Weekend is designed to strengthen your faith and prepare you for ministry in the body of Christ.  This means doing many of the things you already do but with a deeper spiritual awareness of God's power and guidance.

 

     It will also challenge you with the greater vision of God's realm throughout all creation and the role of Jesus the Christ, the Messiah in everything. 

 

     This study/pray/praise weekend consists of sixteen short talks from our Lay and Clergy leaders, along with daily worship, prayer time, lots of singing and, of course, snacks and meals. It begins on Thursday Evening and concludes on Sunday afternoon. 

 

     Sleeping quarters are provided on site and there are private showers and bathrooms available.

 

     The weekend is a time apart from the world, so there are no phones and only emergency contact is expected.  

     Transportation from and to your home will be arranged by your Sponsor.

     There is a list of personal items you will need to bring will be sent to you once your reservation is confirmed. 

     If you have any questions, please contact our registrar:

     "The So. Cal. Walk to Emmaus was a blessing from God to the Church and to me personally as a Pastor.

     I was overwhelmed by the love, the faithful dedication and the presence of the Holy Spirit in everything. 

     And most of all, it is a Lay led and Lay run effort.  There are clergy there but more to support than to lead. 

     I reccomend it to all who are seeking an intensive retreat experience with the Lord."

It's a Gift to Serve:

     The So. Cal. Walk to Emmaus cannot happen without a loving and committed team working both behind the scenes as well as in leadership roles for every part.

 

     Once you have completed your initial So. Cal. Walk to Emmaus Weekend, you have the opportunity to become part of the team. 

     

     On each weekend, the whole team of around 25 or more people seek the "mind of Christ" as they take on the many roles that are needed whenever a such Spiritual Retreat weekend happens. 

     Serving on the team deepens your spiritual walk by following the example Christ gave us in being a "Servant Leader."  This means a total focus on God and God's Unconditional Love as well as the extension of that great and generous love to all those around us. 

     So the teams comes together in Agapé love, prepares in Agapé love, serves in Agapé love and grows in Agapé love.

 

     The Team begins it's preparations and training meetings months before each and every Walk Weekend.  Those meetings are not only bathed in prayer, but all the Candidates and Applications are prayed over seeking God's guidance in every decision.

     The team consist of the Walk leadership, the support volunteers for the weekend events, the cooks and servers for all the meals and the cleaning crew that keeps all the facilities clean and welcoming all weekend long.
