Chrysalis LogoWhat is Chrysalis?

Chrysalis is a unique form of ministry for youth and young adults. The roots of the Chrysalis Flight and Chrysalis Journey are deeply planted in its parent movement, the Walk to Emmaus. Much like the Walk to Emmaus, Chrysalis is a three day experience of God's love and grace in the context of a prayerful Christian community. This community will consist of other people your age in worship, prayer, fellowship, creative expression, recreation, singing, and discussion. You'll experience the love of God through prayers and the acts of service from a loving support community.

Like all spiritual formation activities, there is no real ending to Chrysalis; it is simply one step on a lifetime journey of faith. Through Next Steps small groups, regular gatherings of a larger Chrysalis community and significant opportunities for Christian service, the movement can nurture and support participants as they grow spiritually. Chrysalis is a spark that is prayerfully used to ignite a fire in the hearts of youth, young adults and churches - a fire that grows and spreads because of the fire of the Holy Spirit transforming individuals and kindling the desire to share this love with others.

Q:  Why is it called Chrysalis?
A:  The growth stage between caterpillars and butterflies is called a chrysalis. On the surface it may not look like much is happening, but the delicate chrysalis process changes the fuzzy caterpillar into an awesome butterfly with wings of intricate designs and intense colors. The chrysalis process symbolizes how Christ can transform you into something beyond your dreams. It happens when you grow beyond yourself, opening your life to Jesus' power and transforming love. (Romans 5:5, Ephesians 3:14-21)
