Holy Land Accompaniment


The Nebraska Synod continues our journey of accompaniment with our Christian brothers and sisters in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (The ELCJHL). This accompaniment is an extension of the four trips members of the Synod have made to the Holy Land over the past nine years.

The Nebraska Synod Holy Land Accompaniment (NSHLA) offers various opportunities to be in partnership with the ELCJHL, including accompaniment trips and educational programming.

Exploring the Holy Land, Meeting the People

Join members and friends of the Nebraska Synod in a remarkable journey to the Holy Land (Israel, Modern Palestine, Jordan).  This learning opportunity is offered through the Nebraska Synod, the NSHLA group (Nebraska Synod Holy Land Accompaniment) and the Global Mission Team of the synod.

 April 20 - May 2, 2020 This trip has been cancelled.

Rev. Megan Morrow, an assistant to the bishop of the Nebraska Synod, will be leading the 2020 traveling group as it visits holy sites and gets acquainted with the people in the Lutheran churches, the ministries of the Lutheran World Federation, and many others in Israel, Modern Palestine and Jordan who will share their stories.
