Castle Church door, Wittenberg, GermanyBenefits of Christian Group Travel

God is glorified as you and your ministry take time to remember God's providential orchestration of history. Your sphere of influence will benefit from your remembrance. As you contemplate the “living history” when walking through the cathedrals and castles of Christendom, you will understand more fully their cultural and practical relevance to our day.  Lives are not the same after being immersed in the characters and acts of God’s church at significant landmarks of faith. Their words and music will renew your mind and refresh your soul.

How do I begin organizing my tour?

The most important factor in the success of your tour is your own unconditional decision that you are going to travel and that you are going to take a group of your parishioners, ministry supporters, and other friends with you. Once you have taken this step of faith yourself - the rest is easy. Experience shows that it is best not to make your commitment conditional on others agreeing to go with you. For example, one pastor made his trip conditional on having seven other couples go with him. But the commitment was so tentative that it discouraged potential travelers.

A key element in the success of your tour is to delegate one or two individuals as tour coordinators. These would be individuals who you know would like to join the tour and who would help you in the recruitment of others. Once selected, allow your tour coordinators to assist you with the activities outlined on pages 8 and 9. As the group grows, you may even want to include these individuals in the benefit package or free travel offer.

What are my responsibilities as the Pastor Host/Group Leader?

A pastor host/group leader with CTP recruits tour members, serves as group leader at the airports and leads the group as its spiritual leader. The pastor host/group leader has no obligation as tour manager or guide, because a professional Tour Manager accompanies all CTP tours.
