Sponsorship

A team of Greater Sidney Area Emmaus (GSAE) community members comprehensively worked on a Sponsorship Training Program to address the following questions:
  • WHAT IS SPONSORSHIP?
  • WHAT IS THE AIM OF SPONSORSHIP?
  • WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A GOOD SPONSOR?
  • HOW DO I BECOME A SPONSOR?
The Upper Room is very firm in the belief that we need to be educated in responsible sponsorship practices to maintain a strong, thriving Emmaus community.

Good sponsorship is vital to the health and growth of an Emmaus community. Sometimes we are not aware of the huge responsibility in being a Sponsor. Our hope is to get back to basics, to educate and inform, and answer any questions anyone may have with regards to Sponsorship. Many communities have made attending and completing a Sponsorship Training Program a mandatory pre-requisite to actually sponsoring another pilgrim.
In light of the fact that our community has grown to its present size, it is even more important that our community members are aware of how vitally important Good Sponsorship is.

We are offering our Sponsorship Training Program here on the website for your convenience. You may click on the Sponsorship Training Link, and print out the Class materials to read at your convenience, or just read it right here on the website.

The training materials may also be obtained through any GSAE Board Member just ask and any one of them will be glad to assist you. Sponsorship training is strongly recommended before you actually sponsor a pilgrim. There is so much more to it than gathering agape for their Sunday envelope.
    
The GSAE Board of Directors needs to be assured that everyone is doing their absolute best to cooperate in making our Community strong in leadership, fellowship, and servanthood through responsible Sponsorship, as set forth by the Upper Room.

Additional information is made available on this webpage. You are welcome (and encouraged) to print this information to keep handy. If you know someone who does not have access to the internet, please share with them.

If you have any questions concerning any of the Sponsorship materials called forth here, please contact one of the GSAE Board Members.
