Please step into our Immersive Encounter where you will engage with a woman whose life was displaced and whose journey to her new home in Mesa was more than difficult. In her home, she will make you a traditional Syrian lunch and share her story. Your experience will include learning about the wonderful food she has made, her journey from her homeland to being a refugee to finally being resettled in our area. You will experience a true person of peace and see resiliency at it’s finest!

Trip Status: OPEN
Holy Land Encounter
Join other women from around the globe who are leading in their homes, communities, churches and organizations as we embark on a unique spiritual journey of the Holy Land. Expect a “not so typical” trip that ushers in personal and communal transformation, where the history of faith meets a history of conflict.
We will walk where Jesus walked among the ancient stones of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Galilee to explore the Bible’s different themes of womanhood and how God calls us to the radical and counter-cultural way of living embodied in the Beatitudes, as peacemakers.
As influencers, we will also learn about the issues of power, persecution, politics, and possession that have divided the land in the present day. We will hear from a wide spectrum of voices, mostly female, across Israeli and Palestinian society, in order to experience the vastly different realities of Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities who call this land ‘home’, and how those differences present both opportunities and obstacles for peacemaking.
We will listen and lean in, even when it’s uncomfortable and especially when we disagree; we will learn beyond sound bites and rhetoric; we will be inspired by those who live amidst conflict everyday and yet still choose to amplify peace; we will be implicated about our own responsibility to address conflict and the unique role we can each play to bring restoration and redemption; and we will build deep relationships and experience the vibrant and joyful cultures of the Holy Land.
