Needs of the Community

Our Emmaus Community is looking for “a few good photographers” who would like to offer their services to take group photographs during our Emmaus Walks. You don’t have to be a professional, but if you do photography as a hobby or sideline and would like to be of service to your Emmaus Community, please email us or call an agape board representative, Joya Cole at 931-644-9594, Louise Owen at 615-684-7032, or Chad Richardson at 931-349-9048. 

Musicians and Interpretive Dance Teams are needed for the Chrysalis and Journey Flights. Those providing this entertainment would need to consist of individuals who have previously attended an Emmaus Walk or Journey or Chrysalis Flight. If you would like to make a suggestion, please contact Chrysalis/Journey entertainment board representative, Marsha Dillard at 931-787-0787. 

We also need suggestions for Entertainment for the Emmaus Walks. We need individuals or groups who sing, do interpretive dance or drama presentations. We also need persons who enjoy the “MC” spotlight. Telling a good joke comes in handy for this as well as being able to interact easily with the men and women of the walks. If you have a suggestion, please contact Emmaus entertainment board representative, Steve Elkins at 931-335-1288.
