  • Tour led by Dr. Rick Chromey and an on-bus guide who’ll add historic, cultural, and biblical commentary. If group is over 35 registrants, a third mentor (Bible college or seminary professor) may be added to the roster to help handle questions, deliver devotionals and commentary. We practice relational discipleship through conversation (or rabbinical education) using smaller group contexts.

 

  • Group travel by bus and walking. Some locations require ability to walk hills and steps.

 

  • The tour will be photographed and filmed, then edited into a special memory video for all registrants, compliments of Rick Chromey and MANNA! Educational Services International.
