Grace Tours has the Opportunity for you!

 

Grace Tours gives you the opportunity to share your skills in ministries of service throughout the Holy Land:

We can help short terms volunteers, who come on their own ,  in setting up an Itinerary starting from one day to one month in which you will serve, worship and follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Grace tours will assist you with your logistics.  Once you are here, we will help you find suitable volunteer placements and accommodations. We will make all the arrangements for your tour.

Throughout the past fifteen years we have worked with VIM “volunteers in mission” tours where we organized the whole program which consists of a week of tours and one week of work.

We can also help long term volunteers in finding volunteer opportunities for ministry and suitable accommodations.

Please contact us for suggested itineraries.
