WHO WE ARE


A trip to Israel is in essence a rite of passage for every Christian – a pilgrimage in the truest sense. The origins of both ancient Biblical faith and of a modern day miracle intersect here. The land and the people of Israel have a story to tell. By coming to Israel, you make Israel’s story part of your own story.

PARTNERS


Sponsored by the Philos Project and the Museum of the Bible Foundation, Passages offers Christian college students with leadership potential a fresh and innovative approach to experiencing the Holy Land.

EXPERIENCE


Participants will encounter the roots of their Biblical faith first-hand and come face to face with the modern-day miracle that is Israel. Upon their return, participants will have opportunities to build upon their trip experiences by engaging in further leadership training, with an end goal of being an informed voice for both their
Christian faith and for Israel.

WHY CHRISTIAN COLLEGE STUDENTS?

As mentioned above, we aim to take Christian college students with leadership potential to Israel. We believe strongly in investing in the next generation of Christian leaders. If you’re reading this and you’re a Christian college student, you will be the ones who pastor churches, lead ministries and businesses, develop foreign policy, run for office and everything in between!

We believe that introducing you to Israel’s unique story will only serve as a catalyst to help you both strengthen the foundation of your Christian faith and give you the tools you need as you write your own leadership story.

THE TRIP

Our itinerary is designed to accomplish the two goals of our organization: to point trip participants to the roots of their Biblical faith and to introduce them to the complex landscape of modern Israel, with the goal of building bridges of understanding and friendship between our two countries. The itinerary includes visits to foundational biblical sites as well as sites relevant to the history of the modern Jewish state. Participants will hear from a diverse set of speakers and local people throughout who will help the student understand Israeli culture, government and economy, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and geopolitical and security issues surrounding Israel.
