Thank you so much for visiting the web site as you explore a life-changing trip to Israel!

If you are searching for a Christian Israel trip that is evangelical, Bible-believing, unique & in-depth (with a maximum number of genuine biblical sites vs. your “average” Israel tour with many traditional sites and lots of churches), both informational and formational, and led by an experienced pastor-teacher-archaeologist, then a wonderful life-changing Israel tour experience awaits you as you travel with us! Dr. DeLancey has lived in Israel and has led 53 previous trips (many of these have included Jordan and/or Egypt) and has dug at 4 biblical sites. Each tour is personal and inspiring that takes your walk of faith to the next level. Truly every Israel trip really is the ultimate discipleship program that will transform your spiritual walk with God!

“We could not have chosen a better tour.  It was an amazing and wonderful spiritual journey” (Tom & Marsha, NC)

BIMTFrom the south to the north and places in between, the carefully-planned itinerary for each Christian Israel tour will help you explore many of the stories of the Bible. Every trip to Israel has an itinerary that goes above & beyond the “average Holyland tour.” On every Biblical Israel Tour, you will go to many more “genuinely-biblical” sites (and off-the-beaten-path sites) vs. “traditional” sites and churches. From the many narratives of the Old Testament to the specific focus on the life and ministry of Jesus, reading the stories of faith and redemption on site will take on a new and exciting meaning as we study the Biblical text in context. The life of Christ will also come alive in real and exciting ways! Your heart will be touched too beyond imagination!

Simply put, a trip to Israel and other lands of the Bible is a lifetime investment in your “faith walk” with God. On each Holyland tour you will encounter God in indescribable ways! (To see the day-to-day experiences of our most recent November, 2016 trip, go HERE)
