WELCOME!
The Ohio Valley Emmaus Community is glad you've stopped by!  Here's where you'll find information about Walks and Gatherings.  Not sure what those things are?  Feel free to choose from the menu on the left and browse around the site.

Something you need to know . . . Emmaus is NOT a church.   This international organization was created to strengthen the local church by creating strong Christian leaders who are devoted to sharing the Love of Jesus Christ and assisting the clergy to build the Kingdom of God.

  So, go ahead, look around this site, find out more about us, come and see us at a gathering,
visit us on Facebook and/or drop us an e-mail.  We look forward to hearing from you!
