We invite you to join us for our fifth group tour to one of our favorite places in the world - The Holy Land. It is only here that Jesus walked, healed the sick and raised the dead. It is only here that you can visit the sites of both His crucifixion and resurrection. This is the land of Abraham, King David and the apostle Paul. 

This trip comes at a special time, as we will be celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday together. Trips like this create lifelong relationships and spark a unique appreciation for God’s Word that only comes by “being there.” Experiencing all of this together is the journey of a lifetime. We hope you will come along!
