“CCBC Jerusalem was an eye opening experience for me in several ways. Of course, the location itself was incredible, being within the walls of the Old City. The simple task of walking to get fresh pita bread for breakfast meant daily engaging with the culture, even getting to know some of the vendors after a while. The tour took us to locations of events in the Bible, giving me a biblical map: I could picture Jesus and the disciples walking through the Kidron Valley up to the ascent of the Mount of Olives for example, because I had walked that path myself.
While the locations are unforgettable, what affected me the most was the teaching. The first night, the campus director spoke about what a true Christian looks like. Where I come from, being a Christian was just a part of the culture. That night I remember thinking to myself, “This is what I’ve been needing to hear.” The visiting teachers also took the Bible very seriously. I really appreciated the way they handled the word of God with the mature reverence of experienced followers of Christ.
The Lord used CCBC Jerusalem to give me a much needed push to be more intentional and focused in my faith. And obviously, it’s in Jerusalem, which is awesome in itself. Highly reccomended!”Caleb Greene Fall 2016
