Rob Field and Jane Hubbard forged an alliance in early 2018 when they were co-leaders of the Center’s first pilgrimage to the Holy Land. They served with pilgrimage leader Tom Lewis, who led his ninth pilgrimage to Israel. Soon after they returned, Rob & Jane committed to leading the Center’s next pilgrimage. Rob is an Episcopal minister and founder of Center for Spiritual Wisdom. Jane is a Presbyterian lay leader and international consultant to corporations, non-profit organizations and churches. Rob and Jane look forward to leading this upcoming pilgrimage to the home of two of the greatest saints in history.
