Join us on a trip to the Holy Land

Join a small group of pastors and church leaders for a visit to the Holy Land. Explore Galilee, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem, walking where Jesus walked. The pages of the Bible will come alive for you after you take this trip of a lifetime. The all-inclusive price is just $1,785.

Here are some of the places we will visit on the trip
Caesarea Maritime

Herod built this city and Paul was imprisoned here. The theater, forum, and aqueducts are incredible.

Mount Carmel

You will stand on the mountain where Elijah called fire down from heaven and look out over the Jezreel Valley where some of the world’s greatest battles were fought.

Caesarea Philippi

Jesus took his disciples here in order to say, “I will build my church…” And once you see what’s really here, it will make a huge impact on your faith.

Capernaum

This is the hometown of Jesus, where he based his ministry. It’s mentioned in the Gospels 16 times.

The Sea of Galilee

We’ll take a boat ride on the water where Jesus walked.

Mount Arbel

Many believe this is the place where Jesus went after he fed the 5,000 and the place where Jesus watched the disciples during a storm in Matthew 14. The view here is incredible.

Peter's Primacy

Stand on the shore of the Sea of Galilee at the place where many people believe Jesus restored Peter to ministry. You can read about it in John 21.

Masada

This ancient fortress was built by Herod the Great and was laid siege by the Roman Empire around the time the temple was destroyed. To this day, Israeli soldiers say “Masada will never fall again” at this site when they take their vows.

The Dead Sea

At nearly 1,000 feet below sea level, it’s the lowest place on earth. Nothing lives in the salty water. It’s so salty, you’ll float.

The Mount of Olives

From the Mount of Olives, you can look across the Kidron Valley to the city of Jerusalem. It’s where Jesus ascended back to heaven and is one of the most amazing sites in the Holy Land.

The Garden of Gethsemane

We will be at the place where Jesus prayed “not my will but yours be done.” Many of the olive trees here are ancient.

The Garden Tomb

See what some say is the actual “hill of the skull” and the place where Jesus was buried. It’s a special place and we’ll celebrate communion here as a group.
