Chrysalis for Youth

What is Chrysalis?

Chrysalis is an interdenominational, interracial, and international ministry for youth and young adults. Led by adults and young people who have experienced a three-day event, it is offered for two age levels:

  • Chrysalis Flights for youth in grades 10-12
  • Chrysalis Journeys for college-age young adults, ages 19-24
Chrysalis at St Marks UMC

Tremendous group of youth spiritual leaders at St. Marks.

Chrysalis was developed in response to numerous requests for spiritual renewal movement for youth and young adults. Like The Walk to Emmaus, Chrysalis provides a 72-hour “short course” in Christianity during which participants live in Christian community hear and respond to 15 talks on God’s grace and Christian discipleship, and attend worship services, some of which include celebration of Holy Communion. Prayer undergirds the entire three days — before, during, and after.
