Holy Land Pilgrimage 2019

There’s really no better way to reshape and deepen your understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus than a trip to where it all started. There’s still room to join Pastor David and Laura Felten as they host a pilgrimage to the Galilee and Jerusalem in March of 2019.

“Laura and I are getting excited about heading back to the Holy Land in 2019 and invite you to join us to be on pilgrimage together. CLICK HERE to find a brochure with details on our itinerary and the options available, including extensions in Jordan and Jerusalem. We’ll be departing Phoenix on March 11, 2019 – a beautiful time of year to be in the Galilee and Jerusalem.” 

Having traveled on four occasions with Educational Opportunities, Pastor David and Laura are well acquainted with the quality arrangements and attention to detail that EO’s years of expertise bring into play. Every detail is thought through and planned for in order to guarantee each participant a safe, enjoyable, and enlightening trip.
