Bi-Annual Volunteers In Mission trip to the Holy Land

38Every year Grace Tours in coordination with the Methodist Liaison Office in Jerusalem organizes bi-annual Volunteers In Mission (VIM) trips to the Holy Land.

“I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face so that our joy may be complete.”2 John 1:12

You are invited to participate in a Volunteers In Mission trip to the Holy Land where will you have the chance to show the love of Christ in action in His land. The focus of your VIM trip will be to build relationships with all of God’s children.

Throughout your first week you will visit holy sites, tour the places significant in Jesus’s life and ministry, and visit the “living stones”, the people of the land. The following week will be spent participating in service projects with one or more of our Methodist partners.

Itineraries are adapted to suit the requests of each team, and service projects are available to suit all skill levels. Meetings with partner organizations and individuals are subject to availability.

“Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” 1 Johan 3: 18

By participating in a Methodist Volunteers in Mission team to the Holy Land you will not only be taking the trip of lifetime, you will be fulfilling Methodist resolutions on responsible tourism.

Make your trip to the Holy Land one that includes:

  • The spirituality of a pilgrimage
  • The blessing of being in service to others
  • The fun of a tour
