NorthEast of the Well just finished our 2nd "Jail to Jerusalem" trip to the Holy Lands. We took a group of 20 - comprised of our ministry and outreach partners, community and staff - and journeyed to Israel for a 10 day leadership development experience. The ultimate goal of this trip is to raise up teachers of God's Word: by seeing sites and walking where Christ did, we let scripture take root in our own lives so we can pass it along with new understanding and passion. We didn't waste any time in practicing - most members prepared and shared a biblical teaching at a site during the trip. God is developing leaders and teachers from a group that used to be users and abusers - this is where we see our vision statement come to life: THE OUTCAST BECOMES THE WITNESS!
