GTChrysalis Home

In Southeast Texas can be found a community of believers who work together year-round to prepare for and conduct two (one for girls, one for boys) spiritual retreat weekends in the month of June for high school aged youth . These retreats follow a pattern for spiritual discovery established by the United Methodist Upper Room for people of all Christian faiths and backgrounds. Baptists, Methodists, Catholics, Pentecostals, and many other sects of Christianity are represented on these three-day weekends every year, and all have witnessed and testified of the life-changing experience they found.

Well how do I know that it’s for me?

Get connected with our community. Show up to our RUSH reunions and to an Emmaus Gathering to get a feel for what we’re all about, and we think you’ll come to see that there’s more to us than your run of the mill service organization. Chrysalis serves not only to provide a weekend of escape from the daily struggles of an ever-busying world but to share the love a very real, very affectionate God with His children in a way that is intimate and personal.

Where do I start?

Check here often for the dates of upcoming events. Don’t be afraid to come, even if you don’t know anyone from Chrysalis. (We’ll all be wearing name tags!) You won’t be disappointed by what you find among us, because what you’ll find is always founded in the love of Christ.
