Sisters Rebecca and Vanessa never imagined walking in Jesus’ footsteps. But that is exactly what they did.

Helping Christians Go Deeper In Their Faith
In our high-paced lives, Selah offers experiences for Christians to go deeper in their faith by offering travel, retreat and workshop opportunities.
We have local retreats designed to refresh and replenish, as well as travel opportunities including Holy Land and Bible Tours, or simply travel to a beautiful destination with like-minded people.
THE SELAH STORY
The concept of 'Selah' was birthed Lisa Tarzia's personal experience. As the Executive Director of Mission Travel, Lisa has always been passionate about travel that transforms. Through her own journey, 'selah-moments' she experienced were life changing. This drew her to a place where she wanted to provide opportunities for Christians to have these moments.
"Escaping from the busyness of life and making an intentional choice to stop and go deeper in faith is what I want to create," says Lisa.
Selah provides these opportunities through retreats, workshops and travel. Custom made for the Australian Christian, the heart behind Selah is for people to grow and be transformed.
The power of pausing and reflecting is incredible. As A.W. Tozer writes 'More spiritual progress can be made in one short moment of speechless silence in the awesome presence of God than in years of mere study.'
