EO is North America's largest organizer of Christian Tours with an emphasis to the historical sites from the Bible—from cruises following the Journeys of the Apostle Paul in Greece, Turkey and Italy to Holy Land and Church heritage Tours.

Now under the leadership of the distinguished theologian, Dr. Samuel Pagan, EO en Espanol is organizing and providing new Bible oriented and theologically guided pilgrimages, educational and spiritual programs, and transforming and renewing missionary trips to serve the Spanish-speaking communities in the USA, Latin America and Spain.

James Ridgway, Jr., President of EO, said, "We are proud to have the opportunity to serve the Hispanic community through our partnership with the NHCLC. We look forward to serving Hispanic churches, denominations, universities, Bible colleges and institutes, and leaders associated with the NHCLC, as we provide educational, life changing and cost efficient programs to the Holy Land and other parts of the world."

Since 1974, Educational Opportunities (http://www.eo.travelwithus.com) has been dedicated to providing quality Christian travel programs at an affordable price. More than 500,000 Christians have enjoyed learning through the many international faith-based tours, traveling to every corner of the globe with EO.

Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the NHCLC, said, "The NHCLC is honored to announce this partnership with EO. Dr. Pagan, esteemed Theologian, is presenting our Spanish-speaking communities with educational and travel opportunities never experienced before—expanding the minds and hearts of Christians that will enhance their understanding and commitment to the vertical and horizontal planes of the Cross, the Lamb's Agenda."

The NHCLC is the largest Hispanic Christian organization representing millions of Evangelicals and more than 40,000 U.S. Churches. Seeking to reconcile evangelist Billy Graham's message of salvation with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s march of prophetic activism, the NHCLC emphasizes "7 Directives" of Life, Family, Compassionate Evangelism, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
