a intra-denominational, bible study group for students in high school
and college that meets twice a week at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm on a day of

Emmaus is a
nondenominational, spiritual renewal weekend that is hosted in
community churches across the world. I participated on the Men's' Walk
#4, table of John, through the Greater Scioto Valley Emmaus Community
in 1996. I was also on the team for Men's Walk #15 in September 2001.
Chrysalis is the
Emmaus equivalent for teens and young adults. Many of our Discipleship
members have been participants and staff members in the Chrysalis
communities in Portsmouth
and Columbus. I served on serveral team for Boys' Flights, including
lay director on Flight.
Sponsoring a child
through Compassion International is something that I have prayed about
for many years, but had never taken the steps to sign up. While at
Ichthus 2000, I finally stopped at the Compassion table and selected a
child to sponsor. One of my life goals is to visit every continent and
Brazil immediately jumped out at me. Someday I would hope to visit
South America to see Patricio (an exchange student from
Chilé/Discipleship member/Chief Logan staff member) or my
Compassion child, Jamile. Some benefits of being a Compassion sponsor
include being able to receive and send correspondence through
translators. Each child has only one sponsor and over 80% of
contributions go directly to your child.
Some facts about Compassion
International: Smart Money
magazine, published by The Wall Street Journal, rates Compassion as one
of the top ten charitable organizations in the country based on
trustworthiness and overall efficiency. Compassion's program is
Christ-centered. Every child is assisted through a local church and
learns about Jesus.
