Accountability Groups

Following the three-day experience, participants are encouraged to join small accountability groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ. We want all pilgrims to be connected beyond their weekend as part of their Fourth Days – so that they have a support group that can study and grow together.

Small groups – that meet weekly or monthly according to each group’s needs – meet in one another’s homes or at a church. They can be mixed in sex, age and denomination.

The purpose of the group is to share faith and to grow as disciples. The group keeps the Emmaus flame alive through its sharing, sponsorship of pilgrims and butterflies, its support for fundraising and fellowship events and the making of agape.

The Accountability groups like small house groups play a key role in growing the church.
