Life-changing. There’s no other way to describe it.

Covenant Journey will bring hundreds of Christian student leaders to Israel this year to see the Bible’s past and present firsthand. These students will build bridges with Israel and Israelis, and then return to share those experiences with their communities at home.

Museum of the Bible is a founding sponsor of Covenant Journey because it furthers the Museum’s goal of inviting all people from across the world, from all backgrounds and religious affiliations, to engage with the Bible.

“Visiting the Holy Land — where Abraham journeyed and gave birth to the nation of Israel, David conquered Goliath, and the Prophets and Apostles wrote and lived — and walking where Jesus gave his ministry, is without question, a life-changing experience,” said Museum of the Bible’s Chairman of the Board, Steve Green, a keynote speaker at the recent Israeli Embassy’s Annual Christian Solidarity Event.

 

We believe participation on this trip will create a foundational platform from which the students can become goodwill ambassadors for Israel and the Jewish people, as they share their experiences at home, at school, and among friends.

 

Covenant Journey was designed with a bold vision to create a unique Israel experience that strengthens the faith of participants and inspires them. Covenant Journey participants will never be the same.

 

Each student will be able to participate in Covenant Journey for only $500 because of underwriting from Museum of the Bible, the Philos Project, and other generous donors.

 

This is one of several ways Museum of the Bible is collaborating with other organizations to bring the Bible’s story to a broader audience.

Of course, the opening of the 430,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art museum in Washington, D.C., in the fall of 2017 will exponentially multiply that reach — as an estimated two million visitors per year come through its doors!
