DALLAS, Texas – Passages Israel, a Christian leadership organization offering educational travel experiences in Israel for college students, today announced the relocation of its headquarters from Chicago land to the Dallas area.
Renovations on the 6,200 square-foot office space will begin in late October and feature large collaborative space for internal team use as well as the opportunity to host small events and gatherings. Once completed, 23 of Passages’ 28 staff members will relocate from Chicago to the Texas office. The new office is adjacent to the new 90,000 square-foot convention center and Delta by Marriott Hotel in Allen, Texas, where Passages will host all of its Leaders Conferences.
“We’re thrilled about this new headquarters and how it’s going to allow us to grow our organization,” said Scott Phillips, executive director of Passages Israel. “The move represents both an exciting new chapter for Passages and a reconnection to roots for many of our staff. We’re thrilled to join the Dallas business and faith communities and look forward to years of growth here.”
Through 9-day trips to Israel where participants visit a variety of locations and hear from diverse speakers that call the region home, Passages Israel provides the next generation of American Christian leaders with a life-changing experience that strengthens their Christian identity, provides opportunities to develop and practice their leadership abilities and introduces them to the complex religious, political and geographical realities of modern Israel and the Middle East. To date, Passages has taken more than 7,000 students from 600 schools and organizations to Israel.
