Faith Based Travel
God has left no place on earth
Where His glory is not made known and reflected
....and seeing them in person with fellow believers, is a pure delight!
Why does travel make sense for you? Your church? Your Sunday School or Youth Group? Your ladies group? Your men's group? Your senior adult group? When people travel, they experience new places, gain new knowledge, and deepen relationships with fellow travelers. These memories can stay with a person for a lifetime. We have led group tours to places such as The Ark Encounter, Great Passion Play, Branson, Amish Country, Israel, Italy, Footsteps of Paul, Church Heritage Tours Europe.
But what if you need a little 3-day Getaway trip? We can help you with those too.
