The Holy Land is often called “the fifth gospel,” as it tells the “on the ground” story of Israel, Jesus, and the encounter of world religions. We will walk the ancient stones, meet “living stones,” and learn of God. This trip is sponsored by the Fran Park Center for Faith and Life and will be led by our Director, Dr. Wesley Avram, who has had extensive experience in the Holy Land, our Associate Director, Dr. Michael Hegeman is the biblical scholar of the trip and Rev. Erik Khoobyarian is the logistics chaplain.  Park Center Administrator, Kelly McGinn, will serve as our U.S. contact.

All the trips we take are educational and geared towards cultural immersion, and that’s true of MEJDI. But none are so first hand and intentionally personal as the MEJDI tour guides are.

You come away hopeful because the tour guides can have such different backgrounds and experiences and opinions and still respect each other, And, they introduce you to groups that are working to spread that throughout the world.


Happy Customer
