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!

SueAbout eight years ago, everywhere I turned, I felt a nudge and heard a voice to study and learn about God. I would hear it in discussions with friends, in sermons, in song, in prayers, and in silence. I wanted to ignore that voice because I had a full-time job in the business world that I enjoyed. However, God's voice never stopped, so I enrolled at Bethany Theological Seminary. It all started as a very personal reason with no expectation of using a degree but simply a way to experience God.
