The Holy Land – captivating, perhaps confusing, and central to the Abrahamic faiths. We are drawn to it and want to explore the place where Jesus lived, but we are not sure how.

We’ll begin our time in Galilee and then visit ancient sites from the Old and New Testaments,  This trip will offer new insight into the land and its people: the past, present, and future of the place where Jesus lived and did his ministry. Our hope is that all participants will find a deeper connection to the roots of Christianity and gain greater insight and understanding of the current situation in the Holy Land.
