*Thanks to generous donors, the cost to students is a fraction of the actual cost of this trip (over $3,800). Cost includes airfare from Newark Airport, hotels and most meals. Some lunches are not included. A $200 deposit will be refunded to students who complete an after-trip educational program (lowering the cost to $700). Virginia Tech students are eligible to apply.

“Encountering Israel with Passages was an exciting opportunity for me to see the context and setting the Bible was written into. Learning material provided before the trip, engaging speakers, and top-notch staff each made it an experience I will forever benefit from.”
— Jack Buchanan, VT student

  • What about COVID?
    This is definitely a factor in planning this international trip. Trip capacity is reduced to 50% for physical distancing, and other arrangements for COVID are being planned.
