In the Footsteps of Jesus: An Alternative Tour to Palestine and Israel
Conference Start Date:
Friday, April 27, 2018 to Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Many of the first-century conditions that shaped Jesus' life and ministry continue to shape the lives of Palestinians and Israelis today. In addition to exploring the holy stones — the historic places and sites that have defined our faith — participants will engage the Living Stones: Jews, Muslims and Christians who live in the land.
Experienced tour leaders Jeff and Janet Wright have served as short-term missionaries to Palestine and Israel through the Disciples of Christ/UCC Global Ministries, having traveled there many times. Janet is a licensed clinical social worker. Working near Bethlehem, she and colleagues created an all-Arab training team in EMDR. Jeff is recently retired as lead pastor of Heart of the Rockies Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) located in Fort Collins, Colorado. The tour will be accompanied by a professional, local guide.
