Passages is sponsored by The Philos Project and in cooperation with the
Museum of the Bible Foundation, offering Christian college students with
leadership potential a creative next-generation approach to experiencing
the Holy Land. Participants will encounter the roots of their Biblical faith
first-hand and come face-to-face with the modern-day miracle that is Israel.
Upon their return, participants will have opportunities to build upon their trip
experiences by engaging in further leadership training, with an end goal of
being an informed voice for both their Christian faith and for Israel.

Passages primarily works with colleges and universities
to bring a group of outstanding students to Israel. Some
universities offer GPA requirements, interviews, essays and
applications. Passages’ unique partnership with each college
and university is sure to provide top-notch campus leaders,
academics and influencers to go on the trip of a lifetime.

The itinerary includes visits to foundational biblical sites as
well as sites relevant to the history of the modern Jewish
state. Participants will hear from a diverse set of speakers and
local individuals who will help the students understand Israeli
culture, government, economy, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
and geopolitical and security issues surrounding Israel.

With Passages Now, the alumni engagement program of Passages,
our goal is to turn the trip experience into a vibrant post-trip alumni
community that is committed to spreading the spiritual and moral
message of Israel on campus and elsewhere. Students will choose
three follow-up programs, which are geared towards many different
personality styles, to share what they experienced.
Why Christian college students?
We believe strongly in investing in the next generation of Christian leaders. If you’re
reading this and you’re a Christian college student, you will be the ones who pastor
churches, lead ministries and businesses, develop foreign policy, run for office and
everything in between! We believe that introducing you to Israel’s unique story will
only serve as a catalyst to help you both strengthen the foundation of your Christian
faith and give you the tools you need as you write your own leadership story.
Sponsored by the Philos Project and in cooperation with the Museum of the Bible
Foundation, Passages offers Christian college students with leadership potential a fresh
and innovative approach to experiencing the Holy Land. Upon their return, participants
will have opportunities to build upon their trip experiences by engaging in further
leadership training, with an end goal of being an informed voice for both their
Christian faith and for Israel.
Passages participants are only responsible for covering three areas of the trip, which
include: domestic airfare to and from a designated airport, a $880 registration fee
($200 refundable upon completion of the program!), and bringing $80 cash while in
Israel (for several lunches).
Do I qualify?
• Qualifying participants must be enrolled as a full time, on-campus student
in one of the partnering school’s programs.
• Age requirement is between 18-30, exceptions might be granted for those who apply
for the seminary track.
• Practiving Christian
• Commit to both pre-trip and post trip requirements (simple pre-trip course and choose
at least 3 Passages NOW programs)
• Spouses are only eligible to participate if they also meet the above qualifications.
How do I apply?
We work solely with select colleges, universities, and other institutions and
organizations to recruit participants for our student Israel trips. In order to apply,
potential participants must be approved by their college/university/organization and
then they will receive a link to register within our website. At the end of the registration
process, participants will pay a $880 registration fee ($200 refunded if Passages Now is
completed). Remember that $80 is also required for each participant to bring to Israel,
to cover multiple lunches. Students will then need to obtain their own domestic airfare
based on the international flight information given for that particular trip, which will be
booked through our travel agency.
Cost of international airfare, transportation in Israel, program costs, entry fees, hotels,
most meals in Israel, as well as limited health insurance will be covered by the program.
