Overview

Hello, Beloveds!

I invite you to come, catch your breath, and allow your cup to be filled. Join Theologian Dr. Michael Chan and me as we journey with you and the wild Holy Spirit in the Holy Land. Meet local faith leaders, and embody the scriptures as they come to life. Taste and see the places the Lord broke bread, healed, taught, and lived out his ministry while learning the current-day complexities and holy stories of the land and the people who call it home. 

We look forward to sharing this sacred space together!
