Emmaus Group Leaders

#WhyLead  #LearnbyLeading

Our Emmaus Groups are a great opportunity to grow in your faith. We have a huge interest of young adults to gather regularly to form relationships and relate scripture to their lives, but we can’t have groups without leaders.

If you apply to be trained and lead an Emmaus Group, we will give you the materials you need to succeed. No matter what your previous experience (or lack of experience) is in participating or leading a Bible study, we will be here with you every step of the way to help you invite, prepare and lead your own small group with peers in your area of town.

We’ve put together a list of “5 Reasons You Should Apply to Lead an Emmaus Group”:

  1. Develop Authentic Friendship – Get to know other faith-seeking young adults in your area. Build friendships that go beyond the surface level and form deep relationships.
  2. Go Deeper in your Faith – Dig deep into Scripture with your peers and be fed. Relating the Bible to our daily lives is so rich when done in the company of others, who bring different experiences, insights and perspectives to the table. 
  3. Deeper Trust in God – Might He be calling you to lead your peers? He can do so much with our small, faithful “yes.” Allow “his power to be made perfect in your weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) This ability to trust more fully in God will translate into so many other areas and experiences in your life.
  4. Learn by Leading – One of the best ways to learn is by leading. By taking time to pray and prepare for each small group gathering, the leader gains a deeper understanding of the material being covered.
  5. Respond to the Great Commission – Christ’s final words on earth were a command to, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Take the leap of faith to help Christ’s message be spread to our peers in Indianapolis. If not you, who?


So, what do you think? Will you apply to lead an Emmaus Group with us and get trained this September? Take the leap and see what God does with your “yes.
