Many of the first-century conditions that shaped Jesus' life and ministry continue to shape the lives of Palestinians and Israelis today. In addition to exploring the historic places and sites that have defined our faith, participants will engage with Jews, Muslims and Christians who live in the land, and will meet with Global Ministries mission partners to learn about the current situation.
Experienced tour leaders Jeff & Janet Wright have served as short-term missionaries to Israel/Palestine through the Disciples of Christ/UCC Global Ministries, having traveled there many times. Janet is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Working near Bethlehem, she and colleagues created an all-Arab training team in EMDR. Jeff, recently retired as pastor of Heart of the Rockies Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Fort Collins, Colorado, is serving as a long-term volunteer missionary to Palestine. The tour will also be accompanied by a professional, local guide.
