As friends of Under The Fig Tree we are thrilled to tell you more about our upcoming Growing the Grove Seminar at Sea! George DeJong will be teaching lessons on a special Alaskan Cruise offered by Norwegian Cruises. It has always been our heart to provide fruit from Under The Fig Tree that goes beyond our trips to the lands of the Bible. This experience will not only allow you the opportunity to discover the beauty of Alaska, but to hear new insights about faith, community and our world. For those of you who have traveled with us before and wanted more time to engage George, this is a wonderful place for that to happen.

Family and friends are all invited to join us as we cruise the Inside Passage and Glacier Bay, and stop at beautiful ports on our journey to Seward, Alaska. This is all going to be done on a first come, first served basis. Once the room block we have is sold out, those on the waiting list will know by the end of January if Norwegian has any additional rooms to release to us. If there are additional rooms, most likely they will be at a higher cost than those being offered right now.

How to Register

If you want to be a part of our Growing The Grove: Seminar at Sea, the registration process is different than our regular tours. Here is what you need to do to secure your spot:

Email Terri at your Full Name, Date of Birth, and a scan/photo of the face page of your Passport. Once Terri has that information you will be placed on the list.

A $200 deposit is required to secure your spot and can be made once we receive your personal information. All payments will be made to Under the Fig Tree. We would request, that if possible, ALL payments be made out in check form to “Under the Fig Tree”. No tax-deductions will be given to individuals for the service (Cruise) that will be provided.

All final payments need to be received at UTFT, by April 25th so we can make the last payment to GTI by May 1st.
