Join us on a trip of a lifetime to the Holy Land of Israel. From the scorching sands of the Judean Desert to the salty buoyancy of the Dead Sea, from grand remnants of Ancient Rome in Caesarea Maritima to the most humble aspects of Nazareth, we will have so many incredible opportunities to explore, learn and sample all that Israel has to offer, both as Jesus’ homeland as well as a thriving nation with a strong alliance to the West.


  • Visit Israel and the West Bank, learning from Israelis and Palestinians and engaging with multiple perspectives to shed light on a complex region.
  • Gain a balanced perspective and see sacred sites of the three major monotheistic faiths: Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
  • Peruse the extensive archaeological ruins at Beit She’an, including a 7,000-seat Roman amphitheater and a Byzantine bathhouse.
  • Spend a full day exploring Jerusalem’s Old City, its highlights including the Western Wall, Dome of the Rock, Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
  • Learn about life in Palestine at Tent of Nations, an educational and environmental family farm

Optional Post-Tour Extension
