Writers at savannahnow interview one of the pastors who recently went on a Fellowship-hosted tour of Israel. He participated in a week-long trip along with other members of the Global United Fellowship.

Odum’s denomination, Global United Fellowship, chose him as one of 22 church leaders to visit Israel. That group hails from all over the country, and included multi-Grammy-nominated gospel singer Marvin Sapp from Michigan. The trip happened courtesy of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, which chose Odum’s denomination for the trip.

The Fellowship wants to “build ‘shalom,’ build peace,” with other religious and secular groups, according to the Fellowship’s founder, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein…

What was Odum’s top moment?

Well, he has three: Visiting the Upper Room said to be where Jesus ate his famous Last Supper, being at Golgotha where Jesus was crucified, and seeing the tomb where Christ stayed.
