As part of its commitment to its partnership with Emmaus Ministries communities around the world, The Upper Room continues to oversee the development of its Ministry Manager application. With this tool, The Upper Room offers all partner communities an opportunity to spend more of their time and energy partnering with local churches and works with communities to renew their members in the Christian faith and in their commitment to Christian leadership. As progression in the stages of development continues, Ministry Manager presently comes with many functionalities.
The Database section enables communities to keep a record of persons who, over the years, have participated in an event (Walk, Flight, Encounter) as a first-time participant or as a team member. Communities can use other functions to manage various aspects of their work. Walks, Flights, and Encounters can be organized quickly and efficiently as team selection, role assignments, prayer vigils, community group events, agape, board meetings, Mass Messaging, and Covenant Agreement functions are facilitated by the use of the app.
There continues to be great excitement around Ministry Manager, and community leaders are encouraged to reach out to the Upper Room Emmaus Ministries office for further information on how their community might have access to this revolutionary tool.
If you have any difficulties or questions or would like to know more about Ministry Manager and how it can assist your community, please email [email protected].
Day Four Restore is a one-day retreat designed to refresh the spirit and renew the commitment of those who have attended an Emmaus Ministries event or that of another Fourth Day ministry.

Emmaus Ministries University offers training and instruction for leaders and members of Emmaus Ministries communities. The University seeks to prepare and guide clergy and lay persons for their roles on their community Board of Directors and event teams as well as educate community members who want to learn more about the Emmaus Ministries offerings. Our instruction, offered by various Upper Room present and past staff members, includes sessions that are clergy specific and modules that are geared towards the general membership and the leadership of the community.
In these sessions, you’ll find course content (video, animation, reading, and quizzes) all designed to prepare you for your present or future role within your local Emmaus Ministries community. In addition to this eCourse, Stephane and Doc will engage in conversation with you personally to ensure you are ready and well-supported to serve.
Plan to spend about ten hours (total) reviewing all session material. You can start and stop at any time.
The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
