In the Footsteps of Jesus 2018 Tour
The next In the Footsteps of Jesus tour has been scheduled for April 27-May 8, 2018.
This alternative tour is led by Heart of the Rockies’ own experienced tour leaders, Jeff & Janet Wright. The Wrights have served as short-term missionaries to Israel/Palestine through the Disciples of Christ/UCC Global Ministries. Jeff, recently retired from Heart of the Rockies as our pastor, is currently serving as a long-term volunteer missionary to Palestine. Alternative (responsible) travel seeks to transform curious tourists into informed pilgrims by engaging the people who live in the land and the history, culture, and social realities that shape their lives. This tour has two goals: to experience the holy sites that have shaped our faith; to go beneath the narrative presented by mainstream media to see how many first-century conditions that shaped Jesus’ life and ministry continue to shape the lives of Palestinians and Israelis today. If you’ve been considering participating in one of these tours, make 2018 the year in celebration of Heart of the Rockies’ 25th anniversary. For more information, click here.
