Currently, Emerge is working on several different projects. Here are a few details! 1.) Aquaponics. We have about 13000 plants in the system and about 500 tilapia in the tank! We're raising some fish babies and having a blast getting our product out into the Colorado Springs area! 2.) Summit. This will be the second year that we are going to be holding our yearly Summit at the Colorado Springs Marriott. We had a wonderful time last year and this year will be even better!

Aquaponics is the blending of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants in water). It can be defined as "a farming technique to produce food through the symbiotic relationship between fish and plants." The fish waste provides rich fertilizer to feed the plants allowing them to grow without stress. The plants then in turn filter the water which is returned to the fish tank. Emerge Aquaponics is a group of people dedicated to building these systems around the globe to provide all natural, organic vegetables and fish for undernourished communities.
Emerge's long-time ministry is touring. Ever since Emerge started, they have traveled around the United States and Canada anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months at a time to YWAM campuses, Churches (including main services, Bible Studies, Youth Groups, College Groups, and Small Groups), Christian Schools, and Colleges. Emerge partners with other ministries, YWAM Campuses, and programs to help engage people around the country.
