I have a great opportunity to share with those of you who are pastors, ministry professionals, and those preparing for ministry (Bible and seminary students). This past February, I lead my first Turkey Familiarization Study Trip, and it was an absolute blast. The group was phenomenal. The weather was fantastic, especially for that time of year. And the overall experience was deeply meaningful to all. It was such an outstanding trip, that we’re doing it again! Next year’s Turkey Familiarization Study Trip will be from February 22 – March 3, and the cost for this all-inclusive, 10-day trip is only $2650 ($3150 for spouses)!

What is a Familiarization Trip?
A “fam” trip is travel industry jargon for a familiarization trip. The goal is to show you what’s possible when you partner with GTI Tours to create a group study tour. You’ll not only get the all-inclusive participant experience, but you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look on what a partnership with GTI looks like to facilitate a highly experiential and life-changing study tour for your group. If you do end up creating a group study tour of 30 or more participants after this trip, GTI will credit your $2650 back to your account—making this trip effectively FREE!

What’s the Catch?
There’s no catch! In addition to using these trips to help potential leaders create their own study tours, we use these trips as an opportunity to provide a hugely discounted study tour experience to people in ministry that otherwise couldn’t possibly go. I have a passion to see entire church communities and organizations changed by these kinds of trips. But in order for that to happen, the leaders of these organizations and ministries have to experience these trips for themselves and see just how transformational they are. It is to this end that GTI and I have collaborated with our flight and ground partners in Turkey to provide such an experience at an incredibly low cost!
