Israel Devotional Tour 2017

No travel book or video can compare to being in the Holy Land yourself. It’s an unforgettable, faith-maturing experience! Save the date for this devotional tour on October 13-25 with Pastor Scott and Denise.

For thousands of years, no place has been more precious to God’s children than the land of Israel. God used the land to shape the lives of His people in Bible times, and He is doing the same today. A devotional tour to the Holy Land is a wonderful faith-maturing, life-enriching experience. It’s one of my greatest joys in ministry! Every time I’ve had the privilege to lead a group to Israel, I’ve returned home more in love with Jesus, more committed to His cause. Every time.

If you’ve ever longed to go to Israel, consider this outstanding opportunity. We’ll worship, pray, study, learn, and our hearts will be knit together in the very places where Jesus walked as we open His Word. Let’s start planning for the trip of a lifetime together!
