Online and physical registration options are available. A $600 deposit is due by January 31. The tour price is a cash price, paid by check; 4% will be added for credit card or paypal or other. For more information or online registration, visit our tour web page or review the tour brochure.

While many Christian tours of the Holy Land focus entirely on the sites associated with the events and people of the Bible, this 13-day study tour does this and much more. Participants will visit key biblical sites in the Galilee (Nazareth, Capernaum, Magdala, Megiddo, Caesarea Philippi), Jerusalem (Temple Mount, Mount of Olives, Church of the Holy Sepulcher), Caesarea Maritima, and Bethlehem. We will dialogue with key persons and groups struggling for peace and justice today, and consider water resources from ecological and justice perspectives. In the best sense, this trip will be a pilgrimage for participants, because engaging “the world of the Bible” does indeed involve both ancient sites and current struggles, and how they are intertwined.
