This week, Christian college students from 23 colleges and universities landed in Israel to begin the fourth year of Covenant Journey experiential education and spiritual tours. Christian, college-age students who have leadership potential are eligible to apply and are selected after a careful review of each applicant.
Covenant Journey takes students to Israel in January, May, June, July, and August. Students are also provided internship opportunities in Israel and the U.S., including Washington, D.C. The students and alumni represent a wide range of academic and career choices. Alumni are working in major fields of influence in America and around the world.
Studies have shown that an alarming percentage of young people disconnect from their Christian faith after high school. When they disconnect from their Christian faith, they often disconnect from Israel, and in some cases, become anti-Israel or even anti-Semitic. The primary purpose of Covenant Journey is to strengthen the students’ Christian faith.
Covenant Journey provides a life-changing experience with the primary goals to strengthen students’ Christian faith and equip them to be goodwill ambassadors for Israel. Qualified students pay $500 and the rest of the trip is underwritten, including round trip air fare from the U.S to Tel Aviv, hotels, three meals a day, luxury tour bus, entrance fees, expert guides, spiritual leaders, and expert speakers. Covenant Journey students have come from over 250 small and large private and public colleges and universities, professional and technical schools, including Ivy League schools.
