Nashville, Tennessee – The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) Ministry Partner program, begun in 2016, has worked with Educational Opportunities Tours (EO) since the start of the program. EO is an industry leader in providing educational and spiritual enrichment journeys for pilgrims who want to experience religious sites as part of personal or spiritual development. For nearly 50 years, EO has spearheaded journeys to explore sites of historic and religious importance.

Among the trips travelers can enjoy are Bible land expeditions by land and sea, church heritage tours, retreat cruises, and cultural explorations, to name a few.

Trips planned for 2022 include pilgrimages for mission trips, and trips to Ireland, Africa, India, the Holy Land, and other destinations by land, ocean cruise, and river cruises. EO constantly monitors travel guidelines from governments around the world to assure personal safety precautions are followed for each traveler which includes getting access to documents and processes needed for re-entering the United States.

"Educational Opportunities Tours has proudly served clergy, churches, seminaries, and members of The United Methodist Church for almost 50 years. We are thankful for the Ministry Partnership program with GCFA which helps us accomplish our mission of changing the Church, the ministry, and individual lives by delivering Christian journeys of a lifetime," said James Ridgway, President/CEO, EO Tours.
