A Special Invite from Pastor Jared Burwell & Pastor Cameron Whitley
It is our joy to invite you to join us for a journey of a lifetime to Israel, Jordan, and the West Bank. In October 2022, we are going to embark on an 11-day spiritual adventure to walk where Jesus walked and experience the Bible coming to life as we visit such locations as Jerusalem, Jericho, and the region around the Sea of Galilee. Other highlights include visiting Petra, Masada, and the land of the Exodus. Prepare to be astounded by the rich history that will envelop you at every turn. It promises to be a trip that will impact your life forever.
Without a doubt we are packing a lot into these days, making the most of our time in the Middle East. This is not just a vacation; it will be a spiritually rich experience that will shape and stretch your faith, broaden your perspective on God's Word, and give you insight into the geopolitical complexity of this land. More than anything, we desire for this to be a concentrated time of discipleship with you and the Living Christ.
Let's experience this together, shall we?
