For thousands of years, no place has been more precious to God's children than the land of Israel. God used the land to shape the lives of His people in Bible times and He is doing the same today.  We will walk through the same land where Jesus walked and ministered. We'll worship, pray, learn, and our hearts will be knit together in one profound, life-enriching experience after another.  Be prepared for your life to be changed.  God is so good to provide this wonderful opportunity for University City Church.  Let's start planning for the trip of a lifetime together.
