Reading about Jesus’ life and ministry changes us. Seeing where Jesus lived and did ministry changes how we see Him.
During this trip, we’ll visit Bethlehem, travel the Sea of Galilee, and spend time in Capernaum, the home base for Jesus’ ministry. We’ll also explore Jerusalem and take communion at the empty tomb. We're convinced there isn't a better way to take your faith to the next lever than to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and see the Bible come to life!
