Join Bishop Jung and Scott Carlson on a Pilgrimage to Turkey and Greece to study Paul and the early Church
It is such a gift to be able to travel to the ancient world and see the places and the customs of how our ancestors in the faith have lived.  This type of intentional travel helps to bring the world of the Bible alive.  In addition we have a chance to deepen our relationships with others who travel.  When we deepen our relationships with others and with our scriptures, it fosters a deepening relationship with God. 
Traveling with the Society for Biblical Studies and Rev. Peter Miano, helps us to learn more of the roots of our faith.  Peter is also intentional about helping us understand what is happening today, in the lands where we travel. 

Come, travel with us, and allow God to walk with you and transform and deepen your faith.  More Information
