We will begin our time together in Galilee, visiting ancient sites from the Old and New Testaments. Not only the history of God’s work in these places, but God’s work in the current Holy Land, and what the future holds as Jesus lives and calls for ongoing ministry. We provide a deeper connection to the sources of our faith by interacting with the religions and cultures in this fascinating Holy Land.
