Israel Poster 1-fixWe have several different opportunities for you in 2017-2018. Tours for everyone as well as specialty FAM Tours (Pastor Familiarization Tours) that are for and subsidized for Pastors That have never been before (or not for a long time). These Tours in the Land and the People of Israel where God is still performing miracles and prophecy is being fulfilled daily.

These tours have often been described as  “Life changing,” because of the   total immersion experienced in the land and the culture where the Bible was written. Daily we will visit the scriptural sites where the Biblical events actually occurred.  We will walk and study where Jesus traveled, taught and performed the miracles that you’ve read about all your life. This trip will change the way that you read and understand  your Bible.   We guarantee you that it will be much more alive than it has ever been before. We not only will visit these authentic places, but John, David and other Israeli experts will teach at the sites and bring greater clarity to your understanding of the times and the biblical culture.  God’s Word will become more vivid and alive each time that you read and teach it during years to come.  This tour is biblically based but it will also equip you to better understand the geo-political current events (and the future events) as you meet the people and hear from some world-renowned experts as they visit with us.

One of the things that we have a rare opportunity of participating in one of the most incredible (not many tours do this) archaeological projects in modern times, sifting through the debris taken from the Temple Mount. This “dig” on the side of the Mount of Olives is an unprecedented opportunity to actually discover remnants from the area of the First and Second Temples. It is where they just found one of the seals from King David proving to the everyone that the Bible is True and David did exist! What will you discover while your there sifting?

Attention Ladies (shoppers)! We will schedule an afternoon at leisure in Jerusalem where you can shop until you drop or just enjoy taking in the sights of the Old City on your own.                                             

We provide a single rate for the trip which includes accommodations and meals, entrance fees to religious and other sites, all activities, all services, speakers and taxes. This method allows you to know the actual cost of the program without any additional costs added on, so that you can relax and enjoy the program without any hidden surprises to deal with later. We only use licensed Israeli guides who are specially trained and licensed tour educators, along with John and David.
