Overlooking the Sea of Galilee

Pilgrimage to Israel: In the Light of Jesus

March 9–21, 2015

A disciple’s pilgrimage

NEW! There are spots for two couples or four singles that have recently opened up. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk where Jesus walked.

Visit sites from Jesus’ life and ministry in Galilee, in the Jordan Valley and in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and along the way grow in faith and in following Him.

We will visit the following places: Caesarea, Nazareth, Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Capernaum, Jordan River, Sea of Galilee, Jericho, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Masada, Ein Gedi, Qumran and others.

PLEASE NOTE: Since a number of sites in Israel are only fully accessible on foot, participants must be prepared to walk an average of five miles per day on hilly and uneven terrain.
