UTFT/OKWU Partnership

UTFT Ministries LogoOKWU is proud to partner with Under the Fig Tree, a ministry offering Biblical study tours to Egypt, Jordan, and Israel, led by George De Jong. This partnership provides a student with direct experiences of biblical geography, culture and languages, along with opportunities for face-to-face exchanges with those who have a working knowledge in these fields. Each trip and its accompanying courses help students to deepen their theological understanding of the Old and New Testament narratives. This training provides skills to develop a sound worldview by learning what it means to follow Christ in the world today.

UTFT is a 501(c)3 non profit organization accredited by the ECFA.
