Emmaus Ministries offers a new program, Village Encounter, that provides space for adult participants to experience God’s grace in new and transformative ways. It seeks to renew Christians in their faith and further inspire, challenge, and equip them for Christian leadership in the various spheres of their lives.

The experience begins with an invitation to a deeper journey with the risen Lord and continues, throughout its seven sessions, to move participants to new levels of openness and commitment as disciples of Christ. This event also promises to be a wonderful opportunity for Emmaus Ministries communities and local churches interested in hosting this new online experience.

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.”
