Welcome to Biblical Israel Tours
“Biblical Tours with a Personal Pastoral Touch.” Life-changing Israel tours led by Dr. John DeLancey, pastor, and author of the book, Devotional Treasures from the Holy Land.
If you are searching for a rock solid, highly biblical, Christian, pastor led, personal, and life-changing tour to Israel, I feel humbled and honored that you found the ministry of Biblical Israel Tours. I look forward to sharing my personal friendship and Christian ministry with you! As a former one-year archaeology and historical geography student in Jerusalem, and leader of 29 previous Israel Holyland tours and 3 tours to Greece & Turkey, I’m excited to offer numerous upcoming tours to Israel. ** UPDATE NOTICE: The November tour is now over. See the wonderful experiences of this most recent tour on the Nov, 2013 page.
“Pastor John, you helped bring the Bible to life. You ‘connected the dots’ of biblical history for us. We will never be the same, nor will we ever read or hear God’s Word in the same way.” (John & Vivian, FL)
From the south to the north and places in between, the itinerary for each Christian tour of Israel will help you explore many of the stories of the Bible. From the many narratives of the Old Testament to the life and ministry of Jesus, reading the stories of faith and redemption on site will take on a new and exciting meaning.
All the Israel trips are pastor-led by myself, and are unique from most “standard” tours because of the extra sites that I add to my itineraries. We also enjoy quiet reflective moments, worship times together, and optional gatherings and walks for those who just can’t get enough! The goal of each of each Christian tour is to offer the most rich learning and spiritual experience as possible. To be sure, a Holyland tour to Israel is truly life-changing in ways words can’t adequately explain. An Israel trip will not only bring context to your understanding of the Scriptures, but will also inspire your walk of faith to a new exciting level! Seeing and experiencing the Holyland makes the Bible come alive in ways that are hard to describe.
“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)
Currently, I am the pastor of the Stoneridge Covenant Church in the Pittsburgh, PA area. I am humbled by the 100′s of people who have joined me on Israel tours throughout the past years (see Testimonies) from all over the U.S., Canada, and even from various other countries of the world (who travel with me with land only pricing). So many have appreciated the way I lead each Christian tour since they stand out from many “basic” tours (see the “Uniqueness of a Biblical Israel Tour” heading on our About page).

“I have to be honest and say that I was a little apprehensive about this trip. But anyone who is hesitant about traveling to Israel should not listen to people who have not been there. Israel is perfectly safe. I felt peace and serenity there.” (Sylvia, MO)
