WHAT IS CHRYSALIS?                                       

Chrysalis is a symbol of transformation. Even though you can’t see it on the outside, what was once a caterpillar is now turning into a beautiful butterfly. ”Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here” 2 Corinthians 5:17!


Our Dallas Chrysalis weekends are focused on spiritual renewal to give youth and young adults an opportunity to grow in their faith, and experience God’s love in an extraordinary way.

Dallas Chrysalis is an ecumenical fourth day community that is aimed at sharing the love of Christ with others and growing in our faith together. We hold three day weekends for high schoolers and young adults to experience the love of Jesus. The community is open to all people.

Our community gathers once a month with the Dallas Emmaus community for fellowship, worship, and communion.

We also have smaller monthly reunion groups.

Our next Rally for all youth to learn more about Chrysalis is TBD

Our next Chrysalis weekend is:

High school freshman/15 through 20 year olds

ABOUT THE WEEKEND                                         


You will spend three days with other young adults in worship, prayer, fellowship, creative expression, recreation, singing, and discussion. You will experience the love of Christ through prayers and the acts of service from a loving support community. Think of it as three days for you to rediscover your spiritual self, to analyze and realize who you are in Christ.

You will hear talks given by your peers and other adults. Their words will offer the message of the gospel and the friendship and example of Jesus Christ. Each day speakers present topics with life examples, followed by discussion, reflection, and creative expression of how these messages can encourage your personal faith.

You’ll learn how to incorporate spiritual disciplines into your life and rediscover that, although you’re busy and are living some intense experiences, prayer, Bible study, and Christian action are tools that provide paths through life’s jungles. You will explore how your friendship with Jesus helps you live your faith with family, friends, and community.
