israel study tours

Next spring, I will be leading our next study tour to Israel. This will be the sixth tour we’ve led in the past few years and these trips have been truly life changing for those who have gone!  The early church father, Jerome, once described Israel as “the fifth gospel,” and once you’ve been there,  you’ll know why and you’ll never read your Bible the same way! 

Many years ago, Lin and I went to Israel—first on a tour and then leading a tour—but ever since then, I’ve wanted to design a tour that is a bit more adventurous, a lot more authentic, and that leads to more life change.  These trips are the fulfillment of that dream! This tour will combine pre-trip learning with on-site experiences and will keep us closer to the unspoiled land and farther away from gaudy churches and tourist traps.  We will go places where most tours don’t go, and we will get to see things most tours don’t see. 

These trips will also require a fair amount of hiking so we get a first hand feel for the mountains, valleys, rivers, seas and deserts of Israel. We are limiting the trip to one bus so we can get in and out of sites quickly, so space is limited!
