Mercury One, a local nonprofit organization founded by media personality, entrepreneur, and New York Times best-selling author Glenn Beck, announces a new leadership initiative in partnership with Passages, an organization which inspires Christian millennials to discover the deep roots of their faith and to become informed voices for Israel on their campuses and in their communities.

Mercury One is offering Christian college students in its Leadership Training Program the opportunity to discover the Holy Land. Students will encounter the roots of their Biblical faith firsthand and come face-to-face with the modern-day miracle that is Israel. Upon their return, students will have opportunities to build upon their trip by engaging in further leadership training, with an end goal of being an informed voice for both their Christian faith and for Israel.
