2019 Encounters

Travel in the footsteps of Jesus and our faith ancestors with Young Life. See and engage with the amazing Middle East Young Life ministry while learning about the rich biblical, historical and cultural context of this stunning region. You'll be guided by Andre Moubarak, a legendary biblical scholar and Holy Land Tour Guide; the trip will be hosted by several veteran Young Life staff legends (aren't they all?). It's a trip of a lifetime that can't be missed! Space is limited and spots tend to go quickly so sign up today! >>Learn more here​

And by popular demand, we've worked with Twins Tours and our Young Life Middle East directors to design a trip for Young Life Holy Land Encounter alumni who cannot wait to get back to this incredible transformational land! You'll still experience Andre Moubarak's in-depth biblical and spiritual knowledge, be hosted by Young Life staff and enjoy great times of fellowshipping and interactions with our Middle East Young Life leaders and kids. Ah, but you'll also see and experience new spectacular places and ancient sites in the region. It will be a wonderful second trip of a lifetime! Note: Anyone who has experienced Holy Land tour is welcome to join. >>Learn more here​
