"The study tour brought scripture to life and with better graphics than 5k! From the moment I heard about the trip I wanted in, I knew that there was something for me in this that was crucial to my understanding of the scriptures and how to outwork my faith. It changed the way I read scripture for life and my understanding of who Jesus is.

If you want an experience that opens your eyes to the reality of biblical times, invest in yourself and your knowledge of scripture by going on this trip of a lifetime!"

 - Kris Thornton, 2018 study tour



Emma completed her Bachelor of Ministry with Alphacrucis in 2013 and continued on to study the Masters of Theology, with a semester exchange at Jerusalem University College, located on Mount Zion in Israel. After completing her MTh thesis (2015), she returned to Jerusalem to finish her second Masters, focusing on the geography and history of the Bible.

Imbued with a passion for the relationship between the biblical text and the geography of the Promised Land, she is pursuing a PhD using mnemonature as a lens for looking at how the biblical authors use the natural world to enhance the memorability of the Bible.
