A Chrysalis weekend is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.

The Chrysalis experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor.  After one accepts this invitation they complete an application.  The Chrysalis leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.

Following the three-day experience, participants are joined in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ. 

Through the formational process of accountable discipleship in small groups and participation in the Chrysalis community, each participant’s individual gifts and servant-leadership skills are developed for use in the local church and its mission.  Participants are encouraged to find ways to live out their individual call to discipleship in their home, church, and community. 

The objective of Chrysalis is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.  Chrysalis lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.


Mission: Empowering Leaders to be the hands and feet of Christ
 
Vision: Fourth Day Leaders Embodying Jesus Christ


“I continue to dream and pray about a revival of holiness in our day that
moves forth in mission and creates authentic community in which each
person can be unleashed through the empowerment of the Spirit to
fulfill God's creational intentions.”

  • Agape Guidelines / Agape Sign-In Form

    I ask that each one of you think back to your weekend and try to remember the several acts of love you received. Remember all the wonderful surprise gifts you found on beds, conference room and dining tables? Those were Agape gifts and are the most visible way the Pilgrims feel the unconditional love given to them during their Walk. Only you can make it happen for the new pilgrims!
    Agape gifts are always welcomed and we encourage your Fourth Day Groups to continue to provide these for each Walk. These small tokens of our love are what most people typically think of when we talk about “Agape Gifts.”

    Is your agape ready for the upcoming walks? If not, don’t worry, you still have time to get it done. The correct number of pieces for each walk is 100. Please also be mindful of copyright laws as we are unable to distribute material that is copyright protected, unless it has been purchased.
     Please bring your agape gifts to the walk site Thursday evening as the walks begin.
     Please sign in your agape when dropping it off at the Agape room. Include a brief description of the item, name and phone number of a contact person, the number of pieces included (the correct # is 100). Your gifts, whether they be spiritual or material, are greatly appreciated by all.

    The Agape Sign-In Form is below. You can make as many copies as you need so the agape is ready when dropped off in the Agape Room. Forms will also be available on site in the Agape Room.

    Agape is to be an anonymous act of love.
    No personal names are allowed on your items; however, a walk # can be included.

    Please contact me or any of our other Board Members if you have any questions.
