The Alabama Emmaus Board is sponsoring a clergy training session led by the Upper Room on January 27, 2017. This critical training is designed for clergy who would like to serve as an Alabama Emmaus Walk Spiritual Director. It will also be an informative session for clergy who have already served in this capacity and will provide a time of fellowship with other Emmaus Clergy members.
The training will be held at Sumatanga and will start at 9 a.m. and finish by 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided by the Alabama Emmaus Community.
