Bethlehem Encounter Trip

Learn of the biblical and historical importance of the Holy Land, the indigenous Christian church and the challenges of Palestinians and Israelis living in the midst of conflict. Visit grass roots ministries and meet with local people who impact their communities through projects that address issues of peace, justice, reconciliation, and care for the marginalized.


Open to everyone interested.


Based in Bethlehem at Bethlehem Bible College, the program features interactive sessions with faculty members to give biblical, historical and cultural insights into the Palestinian context. Also included are site visits in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Hebron, Nazareth and the Galilee. Most important is the opportunity to meet and interact with a variety of local people, including Palestinian Christians – the living stones of the Holy Land.

Participation will support the Bethlehem Bible College and local ministries; enhance understanding of the Bible and Jesus’ ministry; encourage prayer and future involvement; help you to understand the challenges of life in this troubled land.
