Every couple of years I lead trips to Israel. I’m going again – this next January/February, and I invite you to go with me. Here is a quick FAQ to get you some information.
When is the trip?
The trip is January 29 – February 8, 2018. If you want to do an optional pre-trip there is a 2-day extension trip to Jordan from January 27-29, 2018. We will meet those only doing the Israel trip on the evening of January 29th.
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on where you are flying from. For example, if you fly from Newark, NJ, the cost is $2999. If flying from Rochester, NY – the cost is $3099. It really depends on where you live. But the tour group that I work with does an amazing job of finding the best rates. In fact, you can call Pilgrim Tours (800-322-0788), and ask for Tim Nyce. Tell him you are interested in the trip with me and want to know how you could get there from your city. They will help you. A $300 deposit is due on October 20th to reserve your spot.
What does the cost include?
The trip includes 4-star hotels, all breakfasts and dinners as well as entrance to all sites that have entrance fees. The only things not covered are your daily lunches as we travel and any souvenirs that you may want to purchase. A lunch typically will cost you $10US per day. Everything else is included.
How much extra does it cost to go to Jordan?
To go early to Jordan will cost $699. It is an extra two days, but well worth seeing these places.
Who is the trip for?
I long for every Christ-follower to get to Israel sometime in their lifetime. To have the opportunity to visit the only places on earth that the only one who died for your sins ever lived – is an opportunity I don’t think you should pass up. I can’t think of a greater honor than to experience a visit to Israel with a group of Christ-followers.
I really want to get pastors to visit Israel. I love to spend time with pastors and talk about how to adjust your preaching based on your visit to Israel – how to make the Bible come alive for people in their preaching. I also love to encourage pastors to return to Israel and film sermons on location. Pastors, if you bring ten from your church, you can come for free!
But beyond pastors, I want all Christ-followers to see my favorite places in the world. So anyone is welcome. We have room for 40 people. I’d love you to join us.
How can I get more information?
At the bottom of the webpage is a reservation form and insurance information if you want to take out insurance for the trip.
I have a few hundred printed brochures. If you want to organize a group to go from your church, let me know. I will send you some packets of information.
And I’m available to talk about the trip. Just email me ([email protected]) and we will find a time to connect to talk about the trip. I’d love to have you join me in Israel.
