Witte Travel & Tours Joins Faith Travel Association

GRAND RAPIDS, MI [May 29, 2014] – Witte Travel & Tours joined the Faith Travel Association (FTA), a business-building resource for travel professionals, sites and organizations focused on faith-based travel.

“Faith-based travel is a fast-growing interest for people of all ages and religious backgrounds,” says Dan Hermen, Director of Sales for Witte. “Sponsoring organizations find tours with religious themes add depth and richness to their programs and even provide new opportunities for community outreach.”

Witte specializes in custom-designed religious heritage tours for pastors and their congregations, religious organizations, colleges and universities, scholars, historians, family groups and performance tours for choirs and handbell ringers.

Each year more than 300 million people of faith embark on trips. Membership in FTA helps tour companies, destinations and tour suppliers (hotels, museums, etc.) work together to create new experiences for these travelers.

“We’re excited to welcome Witte to our growing group of travel industry leaders,” says Dr. Z. Allen Abbott, FTA Executive Director. “Each new member that joins FTA adds to the association’s expertise and opportunities. ”
