The Exciting Ministry of Covenant Journey
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
An exciting ministry of Liberty Counsel is Covenant Journey. It is a ministry designed to take Christian college age students to Israel for a life-changing experience. It is designed to strengthen their Christian faith and equip the to be good will ambassadors to Israel.
Mat Staver: You know, Matt, this particular program grew out of our experience in Israel. We began in 2011 to develop what became Covenant Journey, meeting with various people at the highest levels, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Launching what we then called Liberty Ambassador Counsel VIP Tour, which is a fully paid tour. You have to pay the full price for that. That’s open to anyone.
And that included both the biblical sites as well as modern Israel. Kind of combined different kinds of things in this one experience in Israel.
And then, in 2014 we launched the Covenant Journey– the first tour for Christian college age students. The results have been literally phenomenal. We have done eleven trips. In a couple days we will be leaving to go on the twelfth trip…
