The Bible will come alive as you visit Capernaum, pray at Caesarea Philippi, soak in the Dead Sea and view the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem. You will share unforgettable sights with others, sit and reflect on the Mount of Beatitudes, see where Jesus fed the 5,000, take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, and even be baptized in the Jordan River. This trip promises to be an unprecedented time of ministry and fellowship!
