Come join us and immerse yourselves in this once in a lifetime journey.  We would love to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with you and experience the Bible in a rich new way.  As we traveled in this amazing place, I was reminded how the Bible speaks often of the creation groaning of the glory of God.  I was reminded of the words of Jesus in Luke 19:40, as He rode down the Mount of Olives into Jerusalem, He said that if the disciples were to be quiet then the “Rocks would Cry Out.”  As we walked where Jesus walked, so many rocks silently shouted of the Glory of the Lord, thus the name of the 2024 trip.  My desire is to lead our group on much more than a mere “tourist” experience, but instead to have a spiritual journey to help you gain a deeper sense of the life of Jesus.

  • REFLECT as you gaze at what Jesus and the disciples looked at on the Sea of Galilee.
  • CONNECT with God in a new way when you pray in places that Jesus prayed.
  • WORSHIP in inspiring locations of rich significance of our faith.
  • REALIZE the amazing sacrifice of Christ in the Pit of Caiaphas’s house or the Via Dolarosa.
  • RETURN home with life changing memories and a fresh commitment to the Lord.
