This tour is sold out. If you wish to join the wait list for Calvin's trip, you can do so via the Witte Travel website. Pastor Bill and Lyn will also be leading a second trip (March 2-14, 2020) which is not a Calvin-sponsored trip but also offered via Witte Travel.


"In the Light of Jesus: Pilgrimage to the Holy Land" is planned as a “disciple’s pilgrimage,” following in the footsteps of Jesus not only to understand the Gospels and the early church in their historical, geographical, and cultural context, but also to increase our commitment to wholeheartedly respond to His invitation to “Follow Me.” It will focus on visiting New Testament sites in Galilee, along the Jordan Valley, and Jerusalem.


Sea of Galilee
Ein Gedi
Masada and Qumran
Yad Vashem

Be ready to walk and climb. Participants must be prepared to walk an average of five miles per day over hilly and uneven terrain.
