What is Face to Face

While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. - Luke 24:1

An adaptation of The Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face is specifically crafted to meet the needs and life-stages of older adults. The program seeks to invite men and women, ages 60 and older, to experience Jesus through an 8-session journey, covering subjects such as discipleship, mission, grief, and end-of-life issues. The highly flexible schedule allows participants the freedom to engage in structured discussion centered around talks and covered in prayer in a church setting or other community space. Led by clergy and lay leaders, Face to Face strengthens and renews followers of Christ and bolsters the spiritual life of individuals, families, and congregations everywhere. Face to Face is open to members of any Christian denomination who want to strengthen their spiritual lives, discover answers to their questions about faith, and are open to understanding the responsibility of living a Christian lifestyle.

Face to Face Encounters will be offered in different areas of the NOA Community in the future. Encounters can be held in churches, nursing homes, community centers, etc.

*Important: Team members must commit to all 4 days of the Face to Face Encounter and to the 2 days of Team Practice.
