About this trip

Jesus came so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Come with us as eager pilgrims seeking to abundantly experience Sacred Scripture in the Holy Land. Be it the first or fiftieth pilgrimage to the Holy Land, walk where Jesus walked, see what Jesus saw, and allow His words to take on transformative meaning as our faith travels that final 18 inches from our heads to our hearts. As faithful Christians, we seek to support not just the holy places, but holy faces living there as well. Our journey will be a pilgrimage and a mission trip as we support Christian tour guides, bus drivers, and lodging facilitates. What started as a curiosity about the Holy Land is now a heartfelt passion to know Scripture in its context and to allow all that touched Jesus to touch us. Come encounter Jesus in the Holy Land, experience life in abundance, and share the many blessings and graces.
