Have you always wanted to travel for FREE?

April 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Now is your chance! If you are a church or an individual who is interested in gathering a group of people for a trip, we can design the tour to include comps.

For instance, if you have 10 people who are paid you can get one FREE or we can do it so that for every 7(or 5) people we can do a comp. Here is the breakdown:

10 people pay for the trip=1 FREE traveler

7 people are paid=1 FREE travelA group of 21 who pay=3 people travel FREE
(based on 1 comp for every 7)

The less people you have per comp will drive the price for the trip higher. For instance a 1 comp per 5 people will be a higher priced trip than a 1 for 10 comps per person.  Let us know if you can gather a group and we will work on a quote.

Reasons to Start a Travel Ministry

April 20, 2010 Leave a comment

1. Deepens the faith of your members

2. Allows your group to have the opportunity to travel as a community

3. Can help people develop a heart for missions

4. Develops a closer bond between pastors/group leaders & members

5. Makes the Bible stories, history, & culture come alive

6. Allows a Christian travel alternative for members

7. It’s learning on several different levels – spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, & emotional

8. Offers a great fund-raising program for your church/organization

9. Appeals to all ages– seniors, couples, families, singles, youth, & young adults

10. Educates Church Teachers

11. Gives the pastors/organizers who work so hard throughout the year an opportunity to travel for FREE

12. It’s easy… because we do all the work for you

13. Provides an occasion for an Intense Spiritual Retreat

14. Helps to Develop a Christ-like attitude towards other faiths & cultures

By offering your members a Christian travel opportunity you will have the ability to travel as a community to celebrated Biblical lands, Christian heritage locations in Europe, and even enjoying fellowship while cruising Alaska, Hawaii, and the Bahamas. You can host conferences or retreats aboard cruise ships while you are traveling to exciting ports.

Although Faith-based travel would be the heart of your Christian Travel Ministry, there are many more events that can be included in this group:

• Showings of faith-based travel films & documentaries
• Bible studies before you leave on your journey to prepare your heart
• Sharing effective ways to use their recent travel experiences as an open door to share Christ with others
• Hosting internationally-themed food nights
• Reading books on Biblical & Christian heritage sites

    The package price we sent yesterday includes airfare. The airfare is $882 roundtrip including all taxes and fuel surcharges. We have not seen prices like this for along time. Alitalia offers this price through this coming Friday, October 31. Leave JFK at 5pm on Feb. 16, 2009, join our Weekly Holy Land Tour and then arrive back at JFK at 1:40pm on Feb. 24. Unbelievable package price: $1849 value hotel plan, $1999 comfort hotel plan. This price covers everything except self service lunches and a tip for the guide and driver at the end of the tour. Good add-on airfare prices from other cities.
