Passages Israel Leadership Trip

What is Passages? Passages is sponsored by The Philos Project and in cooperation with the Museum of the Bible Foundation, offering Christian college students with leadership potential a creative next-generation approach to experiencing the Holy Land. Participants will encounter the roots of their Biblical faith first-hand and come face-to-face with the modern-day miracle that is Israel. Upon their return, participants 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.

Before subsidization, the Passages program costs approximately $3,880. Because of Passages’ generous donors, this opportunity is available to participants for a registration cost of $880. This amount includes a $200 program deposit that is eligible to be refunded upon completion of the Capstone Project within 45 days of your return from Israel.
