Biblical Israel Ministries & Tours (BIMT) is ultimately about one thing…. molding and transforming lives for Jesus Christ! We trust this happens when we not only lead 100s of people each year on life-changing Israel tours, but also each time we teach our “Bringing the Bible to Life” seminars in churches around the country. It is our prayer that God uses BIMT to help develop disciples of Jesus Christ who are excited about their faith!
BIMT is an official “501c3” support-based ministry. Our EIN # is 82-2341870. The common denominator among the Board of Directors is that we all believe that God has called us to this unique ministry. We aim to offer our ministry with the highest of integrity. We all love Israel, the land of the Bible, and the life-changing experiences it offers. We are enthused how God will continue to use us and expand our unique teaching and touring ministry!
When people ask ‘why should I support BIMT?‘ the image of pottery comes to mind. At virtually every site in Israel you can find ancient pottery sherds. This is why we love the image that the prophet Isaiah paints, “Yet You, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay; You are the potter.” (Isaiah 64:8). Our BIMT ministry is about “molding” people through solid biblical teaching. We are about humbly being used of God in “shaping” people through transforming experiences where lives are changed and faith-walks are deepened! God brings this transformation to people’s lives as they engage with God’s Word and begin to “connect the dots” between the Bible and the land.
As God leads you, we would be honored to have you join our BMIT support team as we strive to be used of God to “mold” and “shape” people, like pottery, with a renewed excitement in their walk of faith with Christ!
Three Levels of Giving
We believe BIMT is a unique and necessary ministry. It takes a team to build a ministry dedicated to teaching the Bible in the context of the land of Israel. We are praying to God that he would send new “kingdom builders” in support of BIMT. For 2021 we are seeking new:
“Wall Builders” – We are seeking 15 new teammates to give $25/month to the ministry of BIMT. Over the next 12 months, this would mean an increase of $325/month to help us “build” our ministry. Can we count on you to help us reach this goal?
“City Builders” – We are also seeking 10 new teammates to give $50/month to the ministry of BIMT. Over the next 12 months, this would mean an increase of $500/month to help us “build” our ministry. Can we count on you to help us reach this goal?
“One Time” and “Above & Beyond” Gifts – We humbly welcome one-time gifts of support. As God leads you, we also welcome “above & beyond” gifts to the degree God has blessed you.
The successful operation and expansion of our ministry is dependent on the generosity of people just like you. Please also know that because BIMT is an official “501c3” non-profit ministry, each financial gift is tax-deductible. We thank God in advance for how He will enable us to teach, inspire, and serve others in their discipleship journey! To the glory and honor of Christ Jesus and to the transforming of lives!

Walking Through Hezekiah’s Tunnel
Walk through a 2,700 year old water tunnel cut through bedrock by King Hezekiah. This archaeological discovery in the 19th century AD is among one of the most remarkable finds in Jerusalem! The tunnel was carved by the use of two teams of rock-cutters, one starting at the Gihon Spring while the other team starting from the south. The Siloam Inscription found 30 feet from the end of this 1,720 foot tunnel explains these details.
The carving of this tunnel is mentioned in 2 Kings 20 and 2 Chronicles 32. The tunnel still flows with water flowing from the Gihon Spring (1 Kings 1).
