Dr Matt Meinke courtyard

Leading educational trips since 1999.

One of the joys of my ministry is leading educational trips, enhancing the adult formation for Presbyterians in my region.  I’ve led trips to the Holy Land, Journeys of Paul through Greece and Turkey, Scotland/Ireland, Austria/Italy/Germany Oberammergau Tour, and others.  Normally, one trip offered every other year.  You do not have to be Presbyterian to go!

In January 2017, I led a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which included numerous biblical sites, from Bethlehem, to the Jordan River, to the Sea Galilee, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Masada and everything in between.

If you have not been to the Holy Land, prayed on the Sea of Galilee, swum in the Dead Sea, or walked the Via Dolorosa up the road to Calvary, consider this pilgrimage of a lifetime.  After my first trip in 1994, it was like the scriptures opened up to me in a new way – like the difference between black & white TV and High-Definition Color. It has changed the way I see those Old Testament stories, and brought the Gospel to LIFE.  It will change how you encounter scripture.  I can promise you that.

Consider giving yourself the gifts of walking in Jesus’ steps. I guarantee your spiritual walk will never be the same.
