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.

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 most exciting placed to get Baptized on the Planet!

    September 13, 2008 Leave a comment

    The act of baptism is important and meaningful no matter where you are baptized.  It could be in the ocean, a baptismal in a church, a pool, or a bath tub.  Getting baptized int he Jordan gets my vote for the most exciting place for a public declaration!  The below description is adapted from goisrael.com

    Yardenit-The Baptismal Site on the Jordan River
    Be Baptized in the Jordan River-israel tours

     

    Yardenit is the unique and registered site of baptism for Christian pilgrims, at the place where the Jordan River flows out of the Sea of Gailee and into the Dead Sea
    Yardenit is a crossroad for many pilgrims, one among other holy places around the Sea of Galilee, such as Capersaum, Tabgha and the Mount of Beatitudes.

    Every year, over half a million tourists from all over the world visit the site.

    The baptismal site is located on the banks of the Jordan River between magnificent eucalyptus trees and the natural river flora. It is an ideal spot for recollection in serenity and tranquility.

    Comfortable and adequate facilities are available for religious ceremonies on the banks of the Jordan River.

    The visit at yardenit is unique and the most impressive experience for every guest.
