Holy Land— Middle East
Dates: June 16 – August 3, 2018
Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Work & Evangelism Team
Follow in the footsteps of Jesus this summer on your mission trip to the Holy Land!
Travel: After training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight across the Atlantic Ocean and the Swiss Alps to Frankfurt, Germany. From there, you will continue south across Italy, Greece and the Mediterranean Sea to Tel Aviv, Israel. From the airport you will bus to Hope Secondary School in Beit Jala, which is located within walking distance from Bethlehem.
Ministry: Projects for the team include constructing an extension to the laundry room at the school, painting classrooms and landscaping. Imagine looking down at the valley where David fought Goliath as you have your morning devotions or while working around the school grounds.
Adventure: On a visit to Jerusalem, you may walk the Via Dolorosa in the Old City. Other historical sites you may see include the Garden of Gethsemane, the Garden Tomb, and the Dead Sea. You may have the opportunity to ascend the Mount of Olives and overlook the Eastern Gate where Jesus is prophesied to return. Souvenirs including olive wood carvings, clothing and delicate Hebron glassware are just a few of the items you will want to bring home to remember your time in the Holy Land.
Project Expense: $4590 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
Please note that the projects have been chosen up to a year before they are published. Therefore, projects can change, even at the last minute. Please come with a servant’s heart and be eager to do whatever the mission has a need for, regardless of what was specified. We have been invited back to many places because of our willingness to do whatever is needed. ALL teams are work teams in addition to the project listed. Teams are filled on a first come, first served basis.
Boot Camp Experience
“Boot Camp is an amazing experience, I love that everyone is worshipping the same God! Something God has taught me here is that He is with me and He will never leave me. Isaiah 41:10 talks about how God is with us and we should not fear. He is here to help us through the hard times. God will always be by my side!”

Boot Camp Testimony
"Boot Camp is hot, sweaty, sticky and well, completely uplifting! It’s surprising how much I feel encouraged to sharpen and express my faith. In fact, already a few little things have shown me God’s marvelousness and intriguing puzzle-piece planning. I don’t think I am the only one who experiences this. Teen Missions has already been an amazing experience and I can’t wait for the mission field!"
