(Team meetings for both are on Feb 8 and March 14, both at 5 PM, and Gathering is May 9 from 5-7 PM.)
Sponsor A Pilgrim
Sponsorship is one of the most significant parts of The Walk to Emmaus. Sponsorship requires far-reaching prayer, attentive thought, inviting people by name to attend the walk, and watchful planning and follow-through of their Fourth Day. Remember that the walk is not for everyone.
The Upper Room Handbook on Emmaus lists three aspects of good sponsorship: it is the first act of agape before a Walk ever begins, it under-girds the whole weekend with sacrificial love on behalf of each pilgrim, and after the walk your follow-up is crucial for the foundation for a healthy, effective Emmaus Movement, which results in the renewal of the church.

Step 2: Review the information (by clicking the step 2 button) that you’ll need from the person you want to sponsor, in order to submit a sponsorship application.
Step 3: Fill out an on-line application, using the information you obtained from Sponsorship step 2.
