Mission

To offer Christian students a life-changing experience that:
01
Strengthens their identity in Christ
02
Exposes them to the complex realities of modern Israel and the Middle East
03
Provides them with opportunities to develop their leadership abilities

Vision

The future of Christian faith and leadership in America, as well as positive engagement with Israel, depends on the next generation of Christian leaders being deeply rooted in their biblical faith and values, as well as being exposed to modern Israel firsthand.

Statement of Belief

Faith—Discover Your Roots

We are Christians who travel to Israel because we believe that a trip to Israel is a rite of passage for every Christian.

We learn about the biblical story in Israel because we believe that exploring where it happened enables us to discover our role in that story.

We seek to understand the Hebraic roots of our Christian identity because we believe that the path to understanding and living the Gospel goes through the Hebrew Bible.

Read our full Statement of Faith

Israel—Encounter Israel

We support the Jewish people and the State of Israel because we believe that Jews and Christians have a unique shared story.

We support the Jewish people and the State of Israel because we believe they have a right to human flourishing and peace in their historical homeland.

We fight against antisemitism because we believe that this ancient hatred continues to threaten the Jewish people and our shared values.

We support the Palestinian people because we believe all people have been made in the image of God, are loved by God, and have a right to human flourishing and peace.

Leadership—Tell Your Story

We develop principled Christian leaders who address complex issues in society, because we believe that the truth requires us to hold tension rather than escape it.

We develop Christian leaders who advocate for Israel and the Jewish people because we believe that our common faith roots give us a unique role as friends and allies.

We expect Passages alumni to rise to the challenges of leadership in their day because we believe that wholehearted and mindful Christian leaders can make the world a better place.
