Travel Opportunity to the Holy Land

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

      The dream of a lifetime?
A way to undergird ministry and bring scripture alive?
A pilgrimage of devotion to Jesus Christ?

Jesus said, “Follow me!”
Come and explore his invitation more deeply in the Holy Land!

The Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership is excited to announce an opportunity to travel to the Holy Land in June 2013. Marilyn Lerch, director of the TRIM program, and Dan Ulrich, professor of New Testament studies, are leading this travel course and invite Bethany alumni/ae and other interested travelers to join them. It is an excellent opportunity to earn CEU credits.

Along the way, Dan and Marilyn will lend their expertise to that of the professional guides with Educational Opportunities, an organization that has taken groups to the Holy Land for years. From Bethlehem to Nazareth, the Dead Sea to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives to the place where it is said Jesus was crucified, the group will tour the sites that are part of the faith story for Christians around the world. Hear the scriptures read on location and get a glimpse of the Middle East today with its vibrant population and fascinating culture.

Whatever urges you to consider this invitation,
we want you to know that we will be delighted to have you
as a part of this life-changing, educational travel experience!

BekahWhat is ministry? In my eyes ministry is in the pulpit, in the classroom, on the streets, your job at the post office, a local restaurant, or a coffee shop anywhere God calls you to be a ministering person. For me, this year, ministry means a non-traditional (not in a congregation) placement involving lots of administrative work as I serve the South/Central Indiana District of the Church of the Brethren as District Youth Director for the next eight months.
