Overview

I am delighted to invite you to an incredible journey to the lands of the Bible. We will “Walk Where Jesus Walked.” We will see the Bible unfold right before our eyes with the backdrop of spectacular sites. Our understanding and faith will grow as we study God's Word together, right on location. As we follow in the footsteps of Jesus, we will observe the disciple-making model He left for us to follow. Seeing the depths of history in each location will give us a better grasp of Scripture.
