■ In response to the explosive growth of the faith-based travel industry, Lexington-based NTA Services has created the Faith Travel Association. The membership trade organization will serve as a business-building resource for travel professionals, sites and organizations focused on faith-based travel. FTA will also provide connections, education and support for group leaders, religious leaders and travel agents who are planning trips for individuals or groups brought together by their faith or religious community.
Each year more than 300 million people of faith embark on trips around the world, adding $18 billion into the tourism economy. Some 50,000 churches and worship centers in the United States have travel programs for youth and adults, and FTA can facilitate connecting them with qualified travel professionals.
