The Why: Jerusalem

Youth Summit Jerusalem is an immersive spiritual and cultural experience in Jerusalem. Deepen your personal relationship with God as you walk in the footsteps of the Savior and broaden your understanding of other faith traditions.

Your relationship with God will grow as you spend your days visiting sacred sites throughout the Holy Land. You will experience Christ’s birth in Bethlehem, his youth and ministry in the Galilee and the last week of his life and resurrection in Jerusalem. Each day and each site will give an added spiritual dimension to your relationship with Christ with experiences you will never forget.

Additionally, YSJ works with various youth groups in the Holy Land to create interfaith dialogue to help participants deepen their own faith. You will have the opportunity to visit many sacred sites such as the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock with practicing members of other faiths. 

We are confident that you will experience something personal and sacred that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. That is the power of visiting the Holy Land.

*Unlike HEFY, participants in this program will not be centered in one location or working on a building project. Rather, they will be visiting various sacred sites throughout the Holy Land. We’ve learned that the best way to truly get to know a place is by exploring it on foot, so plan on a considerable amount of daily walking.
