Emmaus and Chrysalis Greetings!
I am writing to let you know of an opportunity for leadership development designed especially for board members and community members for both Emmaus and Chrysalis. I am sending this information to you because I know that you are actively involved in The Walk to Emmaus and/or Chrysalis in your area.
An Upper Room Leadership Development event is being held in Normangee, Texas and hosted by the Brazos Valley Emmaus Community on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at Hilltop Lakes Chapel in Normangee, Texas (directions: http://www.bvemmaus.org/directions/dir-hilltopchpl.html).
These Leadership Development Events are being held to help you fulfill one of the items listed in the Covenant Letter that you annually sign with The Upper Room International Emmaus office. We will be presenting presentations on: Servant Leadership, Board of Directors, 4th Day/Next Steps, Sponsorship, Core Elements, and Weekend LD/Team Formation.
I am attaching a Registration Form so that we might know how many to plan for. Once you have completed your registration form, please return it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please pass this registration form along to any interested board members or community members whose email addresses we might not have. Our hope is that you would be willing to put the attached flyer and registration form on your website in order to attract board and community members who might want to know more about Emmaus/Chrysalis.
The Leadership Development event will begin at 8:30am on Saturday, August 18th with fellowship and light breakfast snacks. The actual presentation will begin at 9am and conclude around 3:30pm.
We would also like to consider having separate clergy training on Friday night, August 17th. If anyone (clergy and laity alike) in your community is interested in attending this training, please let me know so that we can plan for that also. Mike Cave, our South Central Regional Clergy Leader for Emmaus and Chrysalis will be conducting that time with the clergy. Any questions about the clergy training should be addressed to Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions at all, please email me at email@example.com (work) or firstname.lastname@example.org (home) and I will respond to as you as quickly as possible.
We are excited about being in the Normange area and we appreciate Brazos Valley Emmaus Community for being willing to host our event. We look forward to the opportunity of meeting you then. It promises to be an exciting time! Please give this information to anyone that you think would be interested in this event.
