About Steps for Christianity

Reaching Jerusalem in 2013

Steps for Christianity – Towards Jerusalem


Steps for Christianity has been postponed to 2021 due to current circumstances in Europe regarding covid-19. The fund-raising continues as the help is needed more than ever!
Christians are forced to leave the Holy Land. This will create an enormous imbalance, which will have a global effect regardless of faith. This development must be reversed.
Through a one-man's 8.000+ km walk, during nine months from Sweden to Jerusalem, this project will help highlight the situation for Christians in the Holy Land.
This is a huge fundraising project; we aim at one dollar per step! These funds will help Christians remain and prosper in the Holy Land. We need your help to reach this goal!
We are already on the go! The fundraising is underway, and the walking will start August 3rd 2021 from Lund in Sweden. The plan is to reach Jerusalem late April 2022.
