HLGU Students to Travel to the Holy Land

“A trip to Israel is in essence a rite of passage for every Christian – a pilgrimage in the truest sense. The origins of both ancient Biblical faith and of a modern day miracle intersect there. The land and the people of Israel have a story to tell.”-Passages Israel

A group of 40+ students from Hannibal-LaGrange University lead by Dr. Eric Turner and Dr. Scott Mullins, will encounter the roots of their Biblical faith first-hand and come face to face with the modern-day miracle that is Israel.

This will be HLGU’s second year taking college students. While on the journey, the group will experience Biblical sights such as the Garden Tomb, the Sea of Galilee, the Garden of Gethsemane, and much more.

The university is in partnership with Passages Israel- who aim to take Christian college students with leadership potential to Israel. Passages strongly believes in investing in the next generation of Christian leaders.

Along with visiting sights, students will hear from a diverse set of speakers and local people throughout who will help the student understand Israeli culture, government and economy, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and geopolitical and security issues surrounding Israel.

The group will be leaving for Israel on December 29, 2018 and will be returning January 8, 2019.

Upon their return, through the Passages program, they will have opportunities to build upon their trip experiences by engaging in further leadership training, with an end goal of being an informed voice for both their Christian faith and for Israel.
