Jeremy and I would like to cordially invite you on a tour of the Holy Lands with us in March of 2019! The spots for our October 2018 trip filled up in less than 3 months and we've heard from many folks who were still hoping to be a part of that trip. So, instead of waiting another year or more...we've worked with the amazing folks at the Center for Holy Lands Studies to create our 4th journey to Israel just a few short months later. We want you to be able to experience all of these amazing sites that will strengthen your faith, draw you closer to God, and help you read your Bible better!
Here's what we know so far...the journey will take place March 26-April 4, 2019. While registration is not open just yet, we can tell you we'll visit some places we've never seen before along with many of the key spots of interest. You'll see, feel, and touch places that directly connect with some of heroes of the faith like Abraham, Moses, David, Peter, Mary, and of course Jesus, along with others!
