Nate's Pilgrimmage to Israel and Jordan
Organized by: Nate Hickox
I am raising money to travel to Israel and Jordan June 15th through July 7th. Northern seminary, where I attend, is partnering with Jerusalem University College to send a small group of students to experience the Holy Land first-hand. I will get to explore numerous Biblical sites such as the region of Galilee, the city of Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the region where David fought Goliath, and many places where Jesus walked. This trip is not a missions trip. It is a trip where I hope to learn about Biblical places and cultures so that when I read the Bible and teach it to others, it will come alive. It will be a tremendous "tool in my belt" as I prepare to become a pastor and teacher. The trip is also a graduate-level course with graduate-level work. My seminary has graciously given a scholarship to cover my flight and some other expenses. That leaves me with $3400 to raise by May 10. That amount will cover tuition, lodging, meals during the trip, course materials and more. I will greatly appreciate your help in making this educational and spiritual experience happen!
