We emphasize Bible lands study tours where we lead people on biblical encounters on location. Our primary context for ministry is with the First Congregational Church in Peru, Illinois, 90 miles west of Chicago. Here we are involved in preaching, teaching, writing, and presenting biblical characters through dramatic re-enactments.
