Greetings from the Emmaus Ministries International Office in Nashville, Tennessee! With great joy we invite you to The Upper Room’s Emmaus Ministries Regional Gathering & Celebration. This year’s event will be held in San Antonio, Texas, on October 78, 2022. The Regional Gathering offers a way for Emmaus Ministries communities to celebrate, worship, and learn. No matter which Fourth Day Ministries event you attend, there will be activities for you.

This will be an opportunity to celebrate and affirm persons involved in Emmaus Ministries across the United States. We will participate in worship and conversations and build relationships and networks as brothers and sisters in Christ.

There is a small registration fee to help defray the cost of the event, but each person will be responsible for their transportation and housing.*

We look forward to seeing you in San Antonio!


*Due to the generosity of donors, The Upper Room is covering half of your registration fee.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
