 ORIGINS IS 

A life-changing experience in the land of Israel for young adults between the ages 18 & 28. Every summer we take young adults to Israel to serve the Jewish people. Year after year, God raises up a group of young people to spend time in Israel to volunteer at a hospital. The work is not easy, but our young adults go to show their support for Israel.

Things You’ll Do

 
Almost half the time you’ll be doing volunteer work for the State of Israel. Hike the Holy Land. Explore caves. Help archaeologists sift through rubble taken from the Temple Mount. Swim in the Seas: Mediterranean, Galilee, and the extraordinary Dead Sea. Show the love of the Messiah to those around you.

Lessons You’ll Learn

 
How Scripture can come alive.
How to increase your love for the Jewish people and pray for the peace of Jerusalem more effectively.
How God can change your heart forever.
