City Wide Crusades
Emerge partners and serves local churches and organizations, with intentionality to begin preparation for a one (1) day evangelistic effort. A specific community is targeted to serve and build relationships. Emerges' role among several others is to serve as steering committee to the local planning committee. Months prior to crusade, we meet on several occasions with all volunteers ("voices") for education and training on personal evangelism and serving the church. Much time is spent reviewing the day of ministry. Emerge provides all production equipment needed and music from Emerge Live, and eclectic group of professional music ministers.
Disaster Response & Relief
Emerge brings relief to many locations throughout the USA and abroad that are experiencing the devastation of natural disasters. We partner with many individuals, local churches, and other organizations to fulfill the mission. These "Voices" ensure we meet the intentional, short and long-term relief efforts needed in the communities we serve. We focus on three concerns. First, we target areas which are under resourced and are the most problematic in terms of crime and poverty. Next, we meet physical needs based on the nature of a specific disaster. Third, we focus on the spiritual healing of the community by providing evangelistic street crusades within the devastated community. These include music, testimony, individual counseling and prayer from pastors and laypersons.
Emerge helps certify and empower individuals and groups who feel lead to minister in this capacity. "Emerge Life Events" are the mobilization of large groups to minister within several state prison systems. We implement all training and administrative issues to ensure volunteers are properly trained and prepared for personal evangelism within the prison system. Emerge staff plan, schedule, and coordinate all efforts for these events. "Emerge Life Events" are large and require many volunteers that are gifted musically, as prayer warriors, in preaching of the Word and the ability to give testimony.
Emerge Chaplains Response Team ( ECRT)
Emerge Ministries is the continuing education and mobilization arm for ACA Certified Chaplains. They are dedicated professional non-denominational ministers, who are being deployed specifically to critical incidents, public safety crisis, the incarcerated and businesses. Our vision is to collectively educate, train, coordinate and deploy chaplains to meet the humanitarian and spiritual needs of those suffering during times of need. The mission is to deliver hope and encouragement to individuals and families; being sensitive to the emotional and spiritual stress experienced during traumatic life situations. With purpose we persuade and guide others toward reconciliation, through restoration and healing of the body, mind, and soul.
Each year we receive items, package and then distribute thousands of care packages to organizations and to individuals who are homeless. We assist homeless shelters in our Serve a Shelter program. In this ministry, we train and mobilize volunteers to serve as a group in shelters for one day, cleaning, washing, preparing and serving meals to the residence and staff. Emerge is partnering and serving throughout the Eastern United States an effort to serve this community.
