When God came to earth, even He went to Israel!
Yes, that’s right and that is why Israel is such a marvelous experience.
When God sent His Son into the world, He sent Him here.
Most of the miracles recorded in the Bible happened here.
Our story–the Gospel story, has played out in this land, and Christians from all over the world find a trip to the Holy Land an invigorating spiritual experience.
Group size is small, usually between 20-28 people. This allows for personal attention and greater intimacy.
Travel is generally by bus that is air-conditioned and has wifi.
We provide study materials and internet resources for 3 months in advance of the trip. One helpful resource is a reading guide that connects Scripture with the site visited. This greatly increases the learning experience.
We use an audio tour guiding sound system. An earbud is place in the ear and the guide’s voice is clearly heard within the range of 200 feet. The last person in the group can hear just as well as the first person.
After the tour, Dan’s 40 chapter book on the sites of Israel is sent to all those who have taken the trip. This helps the traveler to remember what was learned at these sites.
We view this tour as a pilgrimage. Meaningful Bible studies, teaching sessions
