Building or Stengthening the Travel Ministry
at Your Church or Faith Community


In the last few years, the face of faith-based travel has greatly evolved. It no longer represents only travel to destinations such as Israel or Rome. And, it is no longer only for those segments of your congregation or faith community who are retired or possess a higher than average household income. Faith-based travel now includes Christian themed cruises, retreats and conferences combined with vacations, as well as travel to destinations and attractions that combine spiritual enrichment with rest, relaxation, or adventure. Additionally, the increased availability and affordability of faith-based travel products provides churches, ministry groups, faith communities and the like with opportunities to incorporate travel into their community-wide initiatives to help them achieve ministry objectives such as outreach, evangelism, missions, discipleship training, and fellowship.

The knowledge of faith-based travel and its impact on our everyday lives has been pronounced by Kevin J. Wright, one of the world's most recognized faith-based travel authorities. He is the founder and President of the World Religious Travel Association, the leading worldwide network for faith-based tourism. He is also the Chairman of the World Religious Travel Expo and President of the Religious Marketing Consulting Group. The WRTA offers many programs to enhance a faith communities efforts to build or strengthen your travel ministry.
