Walking the Living Stones: A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Walking the Living Stones: A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

We anticipate this trip filling very quickly and advise travelers to register as soon as possible. Once we are at capacity the registration link will close and we will start a waitlist.  

The Holy Land is often called “the fifth gospel,” as it tells the “on the ground” story of Israel, Jesus, and the encounter of world religions. We will walk the ancient stones, meet “living stones,” and learn of God. This trip is sponsored by the Fran Park Center for Faith and Life and will be led by our Director, Dr. Wesley Avram, who had extensive experience in the Holy Land, our Associate Director, Dr. Michael Hegeman and Kelly McGinn, Executive Administrator.

Check out the detailed tour itinerary (also located at the bottom of this page).  

A post-trip extension tour for further exploration and study with our mission partners in Israel/Palestine ( returning November 12) will also be offered.  Details and cost to come!
