THE GIFT is a love offering for emerging Emmaus communities around the world. The fundraising initiative is led by the International Office of Emmaus of The Upper Room.


When you contribute to The Gift, you help others respond to their call to Christian leadership. Your financial support assists emerging communities with start-up needs such as leadership training, program resources, and more.

Your GIFT Funds at Work This Year: As groups like Boko Haram and ISIS threaten to spread violence across the continent of Africa, church leaders in Central Africa are organizing to form a line of prayer that reaches from the east to the west coast. Nigel Warr, the regional leader of The Walk to Emmaus in Africa explains:

“Church leaders in this region had a vision to develop a barrier to stop ISIS from spreading further south, and they identified The Walk to Emmaus as a leadership development program to create leaders in Central Africa and to encourage people to get more involved and spread the word of Christ in this region.”

Your donations to “The Gift” provide scholarship funds and help cover travel and lodging expenses for emerging communities like the one launching in Kenya by 2017. Click here to read more from Nigel Warr.

#EmmausGives on #GivingTuesday!

Let’s GIVE a GIFT to Kenya in 2016!

On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Emmaus pilgrims around the world are invited to participate in a special fundraising drive for the Emmaus GIFT program on Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. 

Emmaus leaders hope to raise $50,000 this Giving Tuesday to support an emerging community in Kenya which lacks resources for travel and training materials. We invite you to pray for this initiative and help get the word out!

Anyone, anywhere can get involved in Giving Tuesday and give back in a way that is meaningful to them. We believe that Giving Tuesday is a great way to engage your community and grow Emmaus Ministries worldwide.

In the U.S., we have Black Friday and Cyber Monday after Thanksgiving. Now, there is Giving Tuesday!

What a perfect way for Emmaus communities to demonstrate Fourth Day living!
