Passages Israel Application
Thank you for your interest in the Passages Israel trip with Elon CCM! Please fill out the application completely.

Join CCM and other Christian students as we journey to the Holy Land! The Passages trip, taking place this summer of 2019, is an amazing opportunity to visit the birthplace of Christianity - Israel. Sponsored by the Philos Project and the Museum of the Bible Foundation, Passages offers Christian college students with leadership potential a fresh and innovative 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. You can watch a video about Passages here:

The trip will depart on Sunday, June 9, 2019, and return on Wednesday, June 19, 2019. Passages participants are only responsible for covering three areas of the trip, which include: domestic airfare to and from the international hub located in New York City, a $750 registration fee ($200 refundable upon completion of the program!), and bringing $180 cash while in Israel (for a tip for the Israeli tour guide and driver, and several lunches). Airfare to and from Israel is included.
