How It Works
A Day On Your Trip
Each day on your trip you will explore new destinations, learn more about reclining in God’s Presence, and build deeper relationships.
Large Group: Leaders gather everyone together daily for 30-45 minutes to do a group building activity and introduce that days lesson.
Small Group: Leaders assign people to groups not only to build relationships, but also so that they have a group to dive deeper into the daily devotion and discussion. Small groups work together to set aside time during meals or during free time so that they can get the most out of their faith growth during their trip.
Individual Time: Each traveler has a travel journal where they can document how they have seen God during their travels, some of the highlights and lowlights of their adventures, and reflect on what they have been learning.
Challenges: All Large Group, Small Group, and Individual Time comes with a challenge to help travelers apply what they are learning to themselves and to their travel experiences.
Travel: Each destination is based of the goals and dreams of your group. From cruises, to all inclusive resorts, to road trips to National Parks, and so much more!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is included in this kit?
Because each group has a different number of people and therefore a different need for supplies, we have broken the kit into two parts: The Leader Kit & Traveler Kit. The Leader Kit includes the Leader Guide (Pre-Trip Planning, Team Building, 10 Days of Travel Devotional Curriculum, etc.), a Travel Journal, a Recline at the Table Pen, Forgiveness Shades, two Compasses, two Big Mistakes Erasers, and a sin box. Each Traveler Kit contains all the supplies needed for one traveler to participate in the devotions and Large Group activities: a Travel Journal, a Recline at the Table Pen, a hot lava square, blank sin cards, confessional cards, It Weighs Too Much stickers, and four banquet clothespins.
2. Do I need to order the Leader Kit & Traveler Kits together?
Yes. To be able to effectively lead these activities each participant will need a Traveler Kit and you will need a Leader Kit. (Think of it like Vacation Bible School - for everyone to participate in the devotion, you need supplies for each person and curriculum instructions for the leader!) When you order the Leader & Traveler Kits they will come in one box that you can easily pack and take along with you.
3. I'm afraid of my participants loosing the supplies - do I need to give them everything in the Traveler Kit?
We encourage you to trust them with the journal and the pens, but keep the rest of the supplies in your kit. Some of the Large Group activities will require you to use materials from the Travelers Kit when you set up ahead of time.
4. What are the devotional topics?
The devotional topics are broken into three sections for each day: Large Group - introducing the topic, Small Group - discussing application to themselves & their travels, and Individual Reflections - journaling about how they have seen God in their journey.
Pre-Trip Meeting 1: Disciples Prepare for The Last Supper - Preparing for the trip (Mark 14)
Pre- Trip Meeting 2: Disciples Argue Who is the Greatest - How to treat our team on this trip (Luke 22)
Day 1 through 10 of the trip can be viewed in the Biblical Content section
