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 Melody Sadler at 931-261-6904.
Musicians and Interpretive Dance Teams are needed for the Emmaus, 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 one of the Board Members who are in charge of Entertainment. 
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 Keith Pachmayer 931-265-1900 or Tracy Conley 931-260-2421.

Our goal is to strengthen those in leadership positions of Hispanic churches in the area.
