The Dallas Region has been active since 1994 in organizing pilgrimages to the Holy Land to create an awareness of the plight of the Christians there. In addition, Dallas has hosted luncheons and dinners to provide University Scholarships for Christian students living in the Holy Land.

“IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THERE IS SO MUCH PAIN, SO MUCH VIOLENCE IN THE HOLY LAND THESE DAYS, THAT WE ASK GOD IN OUR HEARTS THAT SOMEWHERE THERE HAS TO BE PEACE IN THEIR FUTURE. WE MUST COME TOGETHER AS CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE WORLD TO PROTECT THE FAITHFUL AND TO PROTECT THE SHRINES, THE HOLY PLACES, OF THE HOLY LAND.”
