Dear FirstName,

      I really appreciate your willingness to be the 4th Day speaker at our Gathering in **Month**.

      Prior to the Gathering, if you want to wait in the back of the sanctuary, I will ask **Community Chair** and one of our Spiritual Directors to meet with you to pray for God's blessing during your talk. You're also encouraged, if you would like, to have a Prayer Partner come with you that evening. The Emmaus Board will be meeting prior to the Gathering, as usual, so they should be there right at, if not slight after, 7:00 PM.

      As far as I know, nothing out of the ordinary is planned for the evening. The normal order for the Gathering will start with comments and announcements by **Community Chair**, followed by joys and concerns and the community prayer. We then have special music, which will be followed by your 4th Day Talk. We will probably have another special music following your talk. Either you, the person providing the music or both of you may be invited to help with communion at the end of the gathering.

      Please start your writing you talk as soon as possible. Then, reread it and prayerfully ask for God's continued guidance in the delivery. Be sure to address the typical 4th Days Talk topics.

      We also ask that you keep your comments to 10 minutes. You are in a unique position to tell others how the Walk to Emmaus has affected you - how the Holy Spirit has strengthened you in your 4th Days.

      Thank you for your willingness to be God's servant.

      DeColores,

Wilmington Area Emmaus Community

Job Description

Men's and Women's Registrar 

duties and responsibilities

(It is a distinct advantage for the registrar to have access to a computer.) 

    1. NOTE -At this time, a full walk consists of 6 tables with five (5) pilgrims at each table for a total of thirty (30) pilgrims. Check with the Board prior to inviting more than thirty pilgrims.
    2. Usually, you will still need to make several telephone calls to fill the last few positions, or to fill in for pilgrims that change their minds and cancel.
    3. If you have cancellations within the last few weeks, be sure to contact the sponsors first, before the pilgrim is invited It's a difficult job to get all the agape prepared within only two weeks. In these situations, it's a good idea to have a few people in mind that can get their pilgrims ready quickly.
    4. It is important that each walk is filled. Keep a few people on an active standby list. This should be people who can be ready at very short notice.
    5. SPECIAL NOTE - I find particularly helpful and reassuring to pray prior to mailing letters or calling pilgrims.
  1. As the pilgrims and sponsors start to send back their responses,
    1. Attach the responses to the back of the pilgrims application
    2. If the pilgrim responds that they are planning on attending, type the walk number on the Database column labeled walk.
    3. Send an acknowledgment letter to the pilgrims that are planning on attending. A sample is attached to 
      this job description. This can be a mail merge document, attached to the query that lists all the pilgrims that have confirmed they are going on the walk.
    4. After the deadline date has passed, if there are unfilled spaces on the walk, start calling pilgrims in chronological order (or prior list of spouses, clergy or UMC members) until the list is filled with 42.
  1. Once the Walk is filled;
    1. As soon as possible, get the list to the lay director. This should be done no later than 4 -6 weeks before the walk. This gives the team plenty of time to make their pilgrim calls.
    2. Send a complete list with the pilgrim's name, city and sponsor to the newsletter chair for publication in the newsletter. This must be done at least six weeks prior to the walk, whether the walk is filled or not.
    3. At the same time, send a complete list with the pilgrim's name, sponsor's name and address, pilgrim's best friend and best friend's telephone number to the sponsorship chair.
    4. Collect all of the applications in a folder and give them to the lay director about two weeks prior to the walk. Highlight special needs or diet requirements the pilgrim might have listed. Tell the lay director of any special pilgrim needs that may not be listed.   NOTE - should a pilgrim cancel after the lay director has their application, be sure you get the application back and return it to the general file.
    5. If there are cancellations after you have distributed the three lists mentioned above, 1. Fill the empty position, & 2. Call the LD, web master, newsletter chair & sponsorship chair with the updates.
  1. Cancellations after the walk has been filled
    1. Expect two to three cancellations after the walk has been filled. 
    2. It's usually a good idea to contract the sponsor by telephone when filling late cancellations.
    3. Once a cancellation has been filled, be sure to telephone the LD, newsletter chair and sponsorship chair with the new pilgrim information.
  1. One month before the Walk;
    1. Mail the final letter to the pilgrim. A sample letter "Final Pilgrim Letter" is attached to this job description. If using a mail merge file, use the query for the completed walk.
    2. Pray that the list is completed as the Lord desires.
  1. Thursday night Registration
    1. Bring a list of what each pilgrim has deposited and how much is due.
    2. Bring an alphabetized list of each pilgrim's name, address and telephone number.
    3. Bring printed labels for the Agape Bags. These only need to have the pilgrim's first and last names printed on them. Make the printing as large a type as the label will allow. The Agape Chairperson will probably want these labels by noon, when they start setting up the Agape Room. You might want to contact the Agape Chair to see it he/she wants them mailed or left in the Agape Room before Thursday.
    4. It only takes two people to run the registration table. (One could do it, but you'll have a bottleneck develop.) Get a volunteer (or two) to help you on Thursday evening. Have them arrive by 6:00 PM. The Treasurer is an excellent person to help at the table. That way, he/she has the money as soon as the registration is complete.
    5. You need to set up two long tables and two or three chairs just inside the lower entrance.
    6. Get the name tags and bed tags from the Lay Director and alphabetize them on the table by 6:00 PM. 
      It's a good idea to combine the tags of the pilgrims and team members, rather than having two separate groups. Start the name tags on the first table, nearest the door.
    7. Also on the first table, have colorful signs stating, "No Watches", "Do Not Discuss Your Occupation," and "Make Checks Payable to: Wilmington Area Emmaus."
    8. Bring some extra pens and an envelope for collecting the money.
    9. First Volunteer - Meet and Greet the Pilgrim. Make them feel very welcome. Help them find their name tag and bed tag. Remind them not to discuss jobs or to wear watches. Ask them to wear their name tag at all times. Many pilgrims will be apprehensive coming into the church - have fun and help them relax.
    10. Second Volunteer - Have the pilgrim double-check the spelling and information listed on the Pilgrim list. It's very important that this information be accurate. Also, collect the remaining amount due and note who has paid in full, who still owes, etc. All of this information is given to the treasurer with the money.
    11. If the treasure is not able to attend registration, be sure that you have discussed with him/her how they want the money handled.
  1. Following Registration
    1. Immediately following the close of Registration;
      • Be sure the money collected is correct and give it the treasurer or handle it however needed.
      • Take down all the tables and collect all the registration signs.
      • As soon as possible on Thursday night, make the necessary corrections to the Pilgrim list that were noted as the pilgrims registered, and return two corrected lists to the church. Give one to the LD and take one to the Agape room.
    2. Within the next week;
      • Send a list of all pilgrims to the Men's or Women's Good Shepherd
      • Be sure to collect the applications from the Lay Director, of those pilgrims that were scheduled but did not attend the walk.
      • Update the entire database; deleting the names of the pilgrims that just attended the walk.

Clergy Criteria for Emmaus and Chrysalis

(updated October 31,2007)

(These updated criteria replace and supersede the section on clergy qualifications found on pages 29-31 of The Upper Room Handbook on Emmaus (2nd. edition), and on pages 63-66 of the Upper Room Handbook on Chrysalis).

Clergy persons are critical elements in The Walk to Emmaus and in Chrysalis. The two programs depend on the partnership between latty and clergy. This partnership is a model that can be used in churches to enhance the ministry of the church.

It is important to have a thorough understanding of the role of the clergy in Emmaus and Chrysalis, In addition, it is important to have clarity about what is expected of the clergy who serve Emmaus and Chrysalis. It is also important to have a good understanding of how men and women are recognized as clergy and those things that qualify them to be called clergy. Below you will find the qualifications for the various clergy positions in Emmaus and Chrysalis.

Community Spiritual Director

The ministry and mission of The Upper Room Walk to Emmaus and The Upper Room Chrysalis depends on the Community Spiritual Director for leadership and oversight of the spiritual life of the community. The Community Spiritual Director serves as the moral, ethical, and spiritual conscience of the Board, the community and the teams. The Community Spiritual Director assists the Board hi the development and nurture of clergy leaders and also assists in selecting those to serve on Emmaus/Chrysalis teams. The Community Spiritual Director shall be recognized as a competent spiritual leader within his or her church or denomination and by other church leaders in the area. This person should also represent the best Emmaus/Chrysalis has to offer.

Only persons who meet all the following criteria can serve as the Community Spiritual Director. Those who:

Weekend Spiritual Director

The Weekend Spiritual Director (WSD) is the primary clergy leader of the Emmaus or Chrysalis event. The Weekend Spiritual Director is selected by the Board of Directors with the recommendation of the Emmaus or Chrysalis Community Spiritual Director. The WSD is responsible to the board as the spiritual leader of the Walk, Flight or Journey. As with the Lay Director, the weekend Spiritual Director must have sufficient experience, training, and ability for the job.

Only persons who meet the following criteria can serve under this category. Those who are:

Or,

Or,

Assistant Spiritual Directors

The Team Selection Committee and the Community Spiritual Director select prospective Assistant Spiritual Directors for the weekend. Assistant Spiritual Directors will assist the Weekend Spiritual Director in the clergy duties for the Emmaus/Chrysalis event

Only persons who meet the following criteria can serve as Assistant Spiritual Directors. Those who are:

Or,

Or,

Or,

Note: The United Methodist Church has the category of Certified Lay Ministers. These persons are laypersons and therefore are not eligible to serve in any clergy capacity in Emmaus or Chrysalis. This same standard applies to churches and other denominations with similar categories.

Additional considerations:

Using persons who do not meet the above-mentioned criteria is not wise. It compromises Chrysalis/Emmaus standards for clergy leadership and undermines the sacramental role of the weekend Spiritual Director. Moreover, practices such as assigning Holy Communion services to Assistant Spiritual Directors or having Assistant Spiritual Directors consecrate the Communion elements for the weekend Spiritual Director can lead to questions in the minds of participants about clergy qualifications of a weekend Spiritual Director and to confusion about the significance of genuine clergy leadership in Emmaus/Chrysalis. While such practices may simplify clergy selection in the short term, it will undermine the role of the clergy and dimmish the relationship of Emmaus/Chrysalis with historic and established church.

Some Emmaus and Chrysalis Boards face difficult decisions regarding who can serve as a Spiritual Director. Some persons' relationship with the church may not be clearly defined as clergy or laity. Some who serve in pastoral roles in the church or with young people may not be clergy. Others may be licensed to preach, ordained in their own denomination, or ordained by a local church but lack the educational and pastoral preparation expected of clergy in mainstream denominations as well as in Emmaus and Chrysalis. Still others may present credentials stating they are clergy, but the credentials have been obtained through a non-accredited source. These matters must be approached by the Board with Christian love and respect for the persons involved while upholding the clergy criteria and integrity of the Emmaus and Chrysalis programs.

Several aspects of Chrysalis and Emmaus need to be kept in mind as persons are being considered as Spiritual Directors.

Emmaus and Chrysalis team is a ministry partnership between clergy and laity. That partnership represents these persons' equality before God as baptized members of the body of Christ; while, at the same time honoring their distinctive roles in the ministry of the church. This relationship is lost if communities become lax about the criteria for selecting Spiritual Directors. Chrysalis and Emmaus both seek to overcome clergy domination of Christian ministry by moving laypersons forward as the front line of ministry in the world through intentional partnership and mutual respect--not by diminishing the historic and essential role of the clergy. Emmaus and Chrysalis leaders should never discount the role of clergy or convey an anti-clergy attitude. Those persons who are unwilling to honor the ministry partnership and the validity of clergy leadership should not be selected as leaders for Emmaus and Chrysalis.

Implementation plan for the clergy criteria (in the V.S.A. and U.S. Territories only):

The updated clergy criteria document was distributed to all Community Spiritual Directors and Community Lay Directors in November of 2006 with the request that the community begin to move toward these clergy standards on January 1,2007 and provide feedback to the Clergy Regional Representatives and the International Spiritual Director in the process. The expectation at that time was that all Emmaus and Chrysalis Boards would be in compliance with these qualifications by January 1, 2008.

  1. We give thanks to God and celebrate the fact that many Emmaus/Chrysalis boards and communities have met these expectations and are moving forward without difficulty.
  2. We have learned that some boards and communities are unable to be in compliance by January 1, 2008. Therefore, a process is now in place that will allow for a grace period to be established through direct conversation between the local Community Spiritual Director and the Clergy Regional Representative.
  3. Boards needing clarification on the implementation of these qualifications should contact their Clergy Regional Representative for consultation and advice.

  1. Questions and Answers 
     

Important things to remember when you are ready to sponsor….

P Pray Prayer is so important in sponsorship. Pray first. Pray before ever asking someone to consider taking an Emmaus Walk.  Ask God who you should sponsor. Listen for Gods answer. Don't rush the decision. Remember, we're on God's time and His time is perfect.
I Inform Pilgrims need to be informed. Don't rush their decision. Inform them about the objectives of the Emmaus Walk. Let them think about going. Ask them to pray about their decision. Meet with them a few times to answer questions. Help them make an informed decision.
L Letters The letters the Pilgrim will receive are so important. Start with the spouse. If the spouse has not attended a walk, ask them to write a private 'love letter' to their partner. Next, contact the parents and close friend to get other names. Explain the nature and purpose of the letters.
G Gatherings Your job of sponsorship doesn't end at closing. Explain about the Gatherings before they fill out the registration form. Let them know that you will be picking them up for their first Gathering after their walk. This is another act of sponsorship agape.
R Reunion (Share) Groups Share Groups and Reunion Groups are the same thing. As a sponsor, you should definitely help your pilgrim find a Share Group. Work with the Pilgrim, and the Community Good Shepherd to find the pilgrim a Share Group, or help your pilgrim start their own Share (Reunion) Group.
I Invitation Invite the Pilgrim to your home a few days following the end of their Walk. Use this time of discussion to share thoughts about their experience. Reinforce the goals of the Emmaus Walk Program. Make arrangements for attending the next Gathering and discuss Share Groups.
M Marriage Marriage is Holy. A couple should both commit to attending an Emmaus Walk. If one spouse refuses, it is best not to immediately invite the other. Instead, commit to praying about the decision for six month. If the two are still split on the issue, proceed very prayerfully.
S Secrets There are no secrets in the Emmaus Program! Give the pilgrim all the information they need to make an informed decision. People going through the program, knowing all about the talks, the communions and even candlelight, are still powerfully moved by the weekend. No Secrets.
