I’m Thinking About Visiting the Holy Land. Now What?
A pilgrimage, a vacation, a faith journey… No matter what you call it, you will experience this holy place in a personal, permanent way. The Holy Land, the root of our faith heritage, home to Jesus and the Apostles, is a welcoming and endlessly fascinating experience. Find your faith or fulfill it. Identify ruins, discover a culture, or return to its embrace. Find peace or help create it. A pilgrimage is a different thing for each visitor. You’ll never view the Middle East, your faith journey, or the world in quite the same way. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
A discovery journey to the Holy Land can:
- Connect you to actual places where Jesus and the apostles lived and taught.You’ll never read the Bible the same way again.
- Allow you the unique experience of meeting practicing Christians in the Middle East whose families go back to the first century
- Gain a clearer understanding of the religious and political realities of the region. You’ll never read the newspaper the same way again.
- Experience the deep cultural and artistic history.
You may be going to
visit the holy places,
but you’ll come back
remembering the faces.
