Golden Rule Travel’s story as a
Christian Travel Agency
Golden Rule began in 1985 as a part-time hobby of Marvin Mast, owner of GRT, and has since grown to 9 locations and 27 full-time employees.
Marvin’s commitment to our clients has influenced our business since the beginning. He provided his cell number to clients for after-hours travel issues, even if it meant waking him up. Today, his son Hans carries on this tradition.
Our name is taken from Matthew 7:12 where Jesus said, “do to others what you would have them do to you.”
As a Christian travel agency that began by serving our friends and family, we naturally began to focus on Christian travel needs. Over the decades, we began to specialize in international church, adoption, humanitarian, and missionary travel.
Christian Travel Agents
Our Christian travel agents are our most valuable asset!
Among our staff are adoptive parents, a bi-vocational pastor, former missionaries, child-care workers, teachers, and Bible school teachers.
Internet and email are great tools for communication, but we have yet to see a computer that can replicate the human mind and personal touch. When you send your travel requests, we will respond by email or phone.
When traveling on tickets booked through an online booking engine or airline website, your only choice when facing troubles may be to stand in line for several more hours. However, when working with Golden Rule, you have the peace of mind of knowing that we are only a phone call away, 24/7.
Our tagline, “We Make Your Mission Our Mission,” emphasizes our dedication to simplifying travel planning so our clients can focus on what matters most to them.
Our aim is to give you the least expensive, most hassle-free travel possible. We know if we can help make your journey a pleasant and safe one, we’ll have treated you as we would like to be treated.
The staff at Golden Rule is here to help others through the gift of service. We appreciate your business and want to hear from you!
