Trevecca Alumni and Friends Tour

The tour is currently at capacity, but we'd be happy to add you to the waiting list.

Each day of our trip will begin with a devotional and prayer. Along the way, as we travel, the singing of the hymns, game playing, sharing, and mystery gifts of great value and fun help make the trip so much more interesting and fun.

In addition, we have reservations at the newly opened Museum of the Bible, 430,00 square-foot Building providing an immersive and personalized experience as you embrace the impact of the Bible, the Narrative of the Bible, the World of Jesus of Nazareth (a theatrical showcase of murals, streetscapes about Jesus’ teachings), and the magnificent work of renowned Sculptor Gib Singleton describing the last hour of Jesus’s life.  This should be an incredible experience for all of us but with the size of the building and displays, you will be responsible for your own use of time during our 2 ½ hour time (possibly a little more).  Admission fee a part of the trip package.
