Holy Land Trip
Northwest Washington Synod is hosting a Trip to the Holy Land, led by Dr. Rod Schofield, former RMS Vice President
January 14-25, 2024
You are invited to join with others in the NWWA Synod for a life-changing trip to the Holy Land. Not only will we visit holy sites, we will also meet with, talk with, and listen to those who live, work, laugh, worship, and struggle in this land. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL) is one of our partners in the Lutheran World Federation. They are excited to share their stories with us. There is also an additional post-trip to Egypt that you are invited to sign up for, as well.
We want this to be a time for people to interact with and learn with the people of this land. Therefore, we are only taking twenty-four people. We hope that you will come and be a part of this important trip. The trip will be led by Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee of the NWWA Synod and Rod Schofield, the former Vice President of the RMS.
