Agape is also needed for the upcoming walk. You can bring it to the gathering and give it to Phyllis Hodson.

The cost of sponsoring a pilgrim is $100.00. The cost helps cover program expenses for food and supplies. If you have not sponsored someone because it was cost prohibitive, the Ohio's New Covenant Emmaus community has a scholarship fund. This fund is made possible through gifts from previous pilgrims and others in the community. If you need a scholarship for your pilgrim(s), please contact the Community Chair Debbie Henize at 513-314-0895 or wilmingtonareaemmaus@gmail.com BEFORE submitting your applications. If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, please contact treasurer Pat Wallace at pw2@cinci.rr.com for more details.

The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor. After one accepts this invitation they complete an application. The Emmaus leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.


Do you wish to participate in a weekend experience? To give back to the Emmaus community? Please let us know where you would like to volunteer by contacting the Ohio's New Covenant Emmaus Chapter.


The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work. Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others. The Ohio's New Covenant Emmaus Chapter gathers monthly to continue this mission and involve the entire family.
