From 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. 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!  

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 am anxiously waiting to return with Dr. John for another chapter!” (Judy, TX)

As God leads and provides, I extend a personal welcome to you in joining me on an upcoming Christian Israel trip and other lands of the Bible!  I invite you to call me personally to hear more about the ministry and tours (412-999-5697).
