Some say “Emmaus + Jet Fuel = Chrysalis”. The Chrysalis experience is a weekend retreat for high school teens (15 and a Sophomore and up) and college age young adults (18 up to 26 years old). The weekend is structured to help young adults grow closer to Christ and be more comfortable stepping out as leaders in their communities.

The Cornerstone Chrysalis Community is made up of youth and young adults from Louisville and Southern Indiana, and is supported by both the Louisville Area Emmaus Community and the DaySpring Emmaus Community in Southern Indiana.

Residents Encounter Christ

Residents Encounter Christ (REC) seeks to empower prison residents to establish a Christian identity to encounter Jesus Christ. Residents are encouraged to share Christ with others, and in so doing, to change the environment of the prison in which they live, eat, sleep, and work. REC seeks to build strong Christian communities in prison. Residents are instructed to develop small groups which meet regularly and hold each other accountable to spiritual discipline. They are encouraged to pray for each other, and also for the staff and other residents in their facility.

Learn more on the DaySpring REC website. (Louisville REC website coming soon).
