Welcome to the Heart of Ohio Emmaus and Chrysalis Community

The Heart of Ohio Emmaus Community was founded in 1989 by a group of Christians eager to bring the love of Jesus Christ to the north-central Ohio community.  Since our initial Men’s Walk in 1991, over 3,500 people have attended a Heart of Ohio Walk to Emmaus.

Our Chrysalis community began in 1996 with the intent of extending the love of Christ through these wonderful Christian weekends to the youth of our community.  Heart of Ohio Chrysalis Flights are held annually over the Martin Luther King Day and Presidents Day weekends, touching lives of young teens eager to deepen their faith and love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Heart of Ohio Emmaus Community was the first Emmaus community in the state of Ohio to offer the Face to Face Encounter.  Face to Face is similar to the Walk to Emmaus but is geared towards persons 60 years or older.  Instead of involving overnight stays at a camp or church, persons attending a Heart of Ohio Face to Face Encounter meet during 4 day-long sessions at a selected church in our community; the selected church will vary year-to-year based upon local demands for an Encounter.  Our first Encounter was held in Sunbury and hosted 25 pilgrims who experienced the love of Christ in ways they had never done before.  It was so well received that we have had several churches within the community asking that we bring the Encounter to their city.  The Heart of Ohio Face to Face community is in its infancy, but we anticipate a growing program over the next several years.
