Edgerton's Travel Service, Inc., has joined the Faith Travel Association (FTA), a business-building resource for travel professionals, sites and organizations focused on faith-based travel.
"Faith-based travel is a fast-growing market for people of all ages and religious backgrounds," President Tom Edgerton said in a statement. "It includes pilgrimages and mission trips, of course, plus any type of travel that expands your understanding of the world's religions and cultures. It also includes trips or events that people of faith experience together."
Each year more than 300 million people of faith embark on trips, pumping $18 billion into the tourism economy. Membership in FTA helps tour companies, destinations and tour suppliers work together to create new tours and experiences for these travelers.
