To explore our faith
Faith-based travel provides one of the best means of education, and the world is an excellent classroom! Exploring the places of our spiritual heritage provides a better understanding and appreciation of the Church and the Christian faith. The Bible comes alive when you have walked where Jesus walked and stood in places where He performed miracles and taught His disciples.
Everyone is invited to participate in Peachtree Road / EO travel opportunities, and early registration discounts are available. Locate our brochures in the church kiosks or contact Jamie Jenkins at 404.771.7031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the Oberammergau Passion Play
Since 1634, the most famous Passion Play in the world has taken place in Oberammergau. The tradition, maintained and experienced almost without interruption for over 380 years, of putting on the play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every ten years, will be continued for the 42nd time in 2020. It is regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world.
The village at the edge of the Bavarian Alps expects approximately 500,000 visitors for the passion play, over half of which will be international guests. A special law is in effect to insure that all actors of the world’s largest amateur dramatic performance come from the village. All participants, from actors playing the big speaking parts such as Jesus, Mary or Judas, through members of the choir, orchestra members, firemen and ushers, must have been born in Oberammergau or lived there for at least 20 years. Over 2,000 Oberammergau villagers will participate in the 2020 Passion Play.
