What is Faith Travel?

Let's define the term. Faith Travel is the combining of one's faith with travel - Simple as that. There are three forms of it:

  1. Traveling to a sacred destination for a spiritual purpose. Example: Traveling to Mt. Sinai in Egypt (to see where Moses received the Ten Commandments) to grow in faith and knowledge of religious history.

  2. Traveling to a secular/non-religious destination to share fellowship with people of your faith (i.e. church members, religious group members, etc.) Example: Traveling to Hawaii with fellow church members to share rest-and-relaxation.

  3. Traveling with a group for a specific retreat purpose. Example: a Marriage Retreat at Sea or a Women's conference/get-a-way to an All-Inclusive resort in Mexico.
