Face to Face is an experience in the Emmaus tradition for persons 60 and older

Face to Face is spreading throughout the world and over 100 Emmaus Communities have received the training for this exciting ministry, including South Africa and Australia.

Here is some of what we are hearing

From our Emmaus Community in San Diego, California - Talks are more relaxed and have richer content (we aren't real sure why this is!) - Teams are smaller and draw from both men and women - Older team members and previously active team members serve more readily due to not having to spend the night. - Revitalization of our Emmaus community - Table conversations are deeper, more meaningful... with immediate participation - Community members who hadn't participated recently came out to pray in the prayer chapel, to host a lunch or to attend candlelight.

From our Emmaus Community in Missoula, Montana - Face to Face is the best tool available for building church leadership.

About Face to Face...

Face to Face began "Encounters" in Emmaus Communities across the United States in 2015. Each day, new groups are joining in this adventure of starting Face to Face in their local Emmaus communities. They are experiencing a renewed spirit within the community, and growing numbers of pilgrims who are thankful for the focus of Face to Face. For more information contact Hess B. "Doc" Hall, Jr., Face to Face Program Manager in the Emmaus Ministries office, by email at hhall@upperroom.org, or call toll free, at 877.899.2780, ext. 7288.

An adaptation of The Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face is specifically crafted to meet the needs and life-stages of older adults. The program seeks to invite men and women, ages 60 and older, to experience Jesus through an 8-session journey, covering subjects such as discipleship, mission, grief, and end-of-life issues. The highly flexible schedule allows participants the freedom to engage in structured Bible study and prayer in a church setting or other community space. Led by clergy and lay leaders, Face to Face strengthens and renews followers of Christ and bolsters the spiritual life of individuals, families, and congregations everywhere. Face to Face is open to members of any Christian denomination who want to strengthen their spiritual lives, discover answers to their questions about faith, and are open to understanding the responsibility of living a Christian lifestyle. learn more

We Are Praying For You...

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may truly wise and ever enjoy your consolations. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
