Tour the Holy Land with Huntington University

 2014 Holy Land Tour

HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Take a trip to the Holy Land this fall with Huntington University.

Middle East expert Dr. Mark Fairchild will be your host along with President Sherilyn Emberton and Vince Haupert, vice president for advancement, for this unique trip through Israel and Turkey. 

The tour will take place from Oct. 30 to Nov. 12. During that time, you will visit multiple sites throughout the Holy Land, including Ephesus, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee and Jerusalem. 

“Walk where Jesus walked and travel the roads that Paul traveled as he shared the Gospel with people throughout the Mediterranean World,” said Fairchild, who has personally explored many sites in Turkey, including discovering the oldest known synagogue. “This tour will describe the early Christian faith from its beginnings in Galilee, through our Lord’s final days in Jerusalem, culminating in his crucifixion and resurrection.” 

Throughout the tour, you will visit churches and ancient sites where the apostle Paul wrote his epistles. The trip will pair scripture with experience as God’s Word comes to life before your eyes. 

The trip is $4,450 per person, including international airfare (leaving from Chicago) and hotel stay. Registration for the trip has been extended until July 25 but space is limited.
