North MS Chrysalis

Welcome to North MS Chrysalis and Chrysalis Crossroads

What is Chrysalis?

 Mission:  Empowering Leaders to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Vision:  Fourth Day Leaders Embodying Jesus Christ

Who should go to Chrysalis?

Chrysalis is Open to members of any Christian denomination or those seeking a deeper relationship with God. Chrysalis is for the development of Christian leaders who:

  • Have a desire to strengthen their spiritual lives
  • May have unanswered questions about their faith
  • Understand that being a Christian involves responsibility
  • Are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner

What happens on the Chrysalis Weekend?

You will enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups.  Discussions center around fifteen talks given by youth and adult laity and clergy.  These talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian community and how it is expressed in the world.  You’ll also discover how grace is real in your life, how you live a life of grace, and how you bring that grace to others. 


You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily celebration of Holy Communion and to understand more fully the body of Christ.  You will experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Chrysalis community.  You will leave with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace-filled service and leadership.

What Happens After the Chrysalis Weekend?

You are invited to have a closer walk with Christ for the rest of your life; this is called the Fourth Day.  Those who attend a Chrysalis Weekend are encouraged to:

Expand their own spiritual lives through worship, study and active participation in their local church

Become more active disciples of Christ in service ot the world

To nurture this process of discipleship, the Chrysalis movement offers specific opportunities.  First, groups of four to six people meet weekly to reflect on their spiritual journey and encourage one another in accountable discipleship.  Second, there are monthly community gatherings where Chrysalis participants meet for fellowship, worship and instruction.  Third, community members are regularly informed of the support needs of upcoming Chrysalis weekends, and other opportunities for servant leadership.
