Follow The Prophets. Follow Jesus. Follow The Original Pilgrims.

In Old Testament times, the land east of the Jordan River included the Ammonite, Moabite and Edomite kingdoms. In the New Testament, the region included most of the cities of the Decapolis. The Greeks called it Perea, which meant the “territory beyond.” This is where Jesus taught multitudes, performed miracles and cast out demons, as he traveled back and forth between east and west, proclaiming his message.
