Pilgrimage At the end of Journey to Adulthood ( J2A) teens go on a spiritual pilgrimage to seek God in new and old ways. The pilgrims participate in mission work, community living and explore the local area of the pilgrimage site. Participants choose their own site and help raise their own funds. In 2017 the pilgrims travel to Banff, Alberta Canada. Where they volunteered in a community garden, spent a day experiencing homeless and hiked the beautiful mountains in Banff.
Previous pilgrimage sites have been Cody, Wyoming; Anchorage, Alaska; the Black Hills of South Dakota, Dominican Republic, Pemberton, British Columbia, Juneau, Alaska and in 2015 they traveled to Rome, Italy.
