From the south to the north and places in between, the carefully-planned itinerary for each evangelical Christian in-depth tour of Israel will help you explore many of the stories of the Bible. The itinerary for each trip goes above & beyond the “average Holyland tour.”  You will go to many more “genuinely-biblical” sites vs. “traditional” sites. 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.  Your heart will be touched too beyond imagination!

Traveling to Israel and other lands of the Bible is a lifetime investment in your “faith walk” with God.  The “Holyland” is His land and You will encounter God in indescribable ways!  

My personal experience was incredible! From the time I signed up for the trip I had such a peace knowing I found the perfect tour for my needs. I couldn’t get enough and am anxiously waiting to return with John for another chapter. Thank you for this incredible experience!!” (Judy, TX)

As God leads and provides, I extend a personal welcome to you in joining me on one of these upcoming Christian Holyland tour and other lands of the Bible!

In Christ alone,

Dr. John DeLancey

“Israel trips that unfold the context of the Bible, engage your mind, touch
