Christian Travel — a surprisingly simple addition to your dynamic, authentic ministry.
When Educational Opportunities began in 1974, our goal was to enrich the ministry and lives of those who preach and those who teach. We offer educational Christian travel at affordable cost. In addition, we offer clergy scholarships on a variety of travel programs.

How Your Ministry will be Enhanced by Christian Travel…
Increase Biblical Literacy: Your church members will learn more and recall more about the scriptures because they have seen the land. They will be better teachers because they have experienced the Land of the Bible, come face to face with the central personalities of the Bible and learned first-hand about Paul and the problems of the early church.
Rediscover Your Roots & Heritage: The journey will provide a better understanding of your tradition and background. You and your church members will gain an appreciation for the dedication and sacrifice of the founder’s of your faith and their contribution to society.
Better Understanding of the Contemporary Situation: The journey will open your mind to new insights into the political, social and economic situation of each area you’re visiting.
Revive Spiritual Awareness: The journey will awaken the spiritual dimension of your church members’ faith in a way no other experience can! Prayer life will be enriched as will one’s personal understanding of Christ.
Create Deep and Lasting Christian Bonds: Church members who travel together will be connected by a shared spiritual experience, deepening the Christian bonds which they already share with each other and you.
Enhance Life: The journey will open new horizons and provide a lifetime of memories for the church members who travel. It can also meet the emotional needs of various members of your congregation, such as those who need to connect with others, those who are struggling with marriage issues, or who are questioning vocational choices, or who need comfort after the lose of a loved one.
Develop Current and Future Church Leaders: 1)The journey will help strengthen your current church leaders and develop new leaders for tomorrow. 2) Each traveler should be asked to take on new responsibilities in the church after the journey. 3) Those who were hesitant to lead a study group will now feel empowered. 4) Young people may be encouraged to consider ministry as a vocation.
