Connecting with Meaning


Every sincere Christian wants to walk the land of the bible. Fifth Gospel Encounters offers this opportunity in such a unique way. I am preparing to accompany a second group from my church this spring, not only because I personally love the trip but because of the new passion for the Word it has brought to our church. Mark opens a whole new window on the scriptures with his onsite relevant teaching. People come to see both sides of the bible: the Western side we are used to and the Eastern side that, for the most part, we have never explored. Christians approach the bible with a fresh eagerness that is delightful to see.

Hiking the Land Travel Israel
I love the fact that we hike the land. This makes it more than just another trip – it is a pilgrimage. As a fellow pastor, I am reaping the results of involvement in Fifth Gospel Encounters.
