Like all Communities of the Walk to Emmaus, The Springfield Area Walk to Emmaus is a truly remarkable experience in God’s life changing love. We have a wonderful unpaid Board of Directors and servants who are caring, committed Christians willing to be vessels of God’s love in Jesus Christ. If you live in the Springfield, Ohio area, or are just planning an extended visit, we hope you would participate in this wonderful weekend. When you do, we believe you will encounter our God whose unconditional love will fill you with that something more with renewed spiritual power and purpose. We trust that God will inspire you to want to return His favor by making a difference in the world.
