Dear Emmaus Family,
I am always excited to see what our Lord will do each day. I truly thank you for this opportunity to serve Him and you as the new Training Coordinator. As a teacher in our Children’s Ministry for 10+ years the Blessings have been overflowing. The Kids learn and I also learn. You are my family and peers so the same hopefully applies…We all learn together in God’s love.
I want to encourage our community with a few thoughts.
Becky Hughes - Training Coordinator
I am humbled to have been chosen as this community’s next Community Lay Director. And although there is something inside in me saying, “I am not worthy”, mixed with a bit of self doubt about being God’s spokesperson- I do know that God can accomplish great things through simple ordinary people.
Jim Baker - Community Lay Director
I walked So Cal Emmaus as a Pilgrim in October 2005. It was a major transformation in my walk with Jesus. To be loved on and served for 72 hours straight was overwhelming. My Best Friend told me, “don’t think, just walk”, so that is what I did.
This ministry has been an integral part of my Christian growth.
My “walk” began several months into my first church plant in 1987. A friend and member who had recently completed his walk began to pester me and wanted to sponsor me to attend a SoCal men’s weekend. I put him off repeatedly until I finally gave in to just get him to leave me alone. When asked if I wanted to walk as a pastor or layman, I said “laymen” because I liked the idea of being just one of the guys.
