Two years ago I took my first trip to Israel to film and learn and it inspired me to go back every couple of years. I’m going again – this next February, and I invite you to go with me. Here is a quick rundown of the trip. I hope you’ll consider traveling and studying with us.
What is the trip?
This is a great opportunity to study the Bible for yourself on location. You will be able to see for yourself where many of the events of the Bible took place. We will visit places like Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee and many more.
When is the trip?
We will be traveling in February of 2018. Our official dates will be here soon!
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on where you are flying from. If you fly from Kansas City with us the cost is going to be right at $3,000 (Final numbers will be available later this week) for everything on a 11 day trip. 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 Rob Hamm. Tell him you are interested in the trip with New Story Church 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 $10 US per day. Everything else is included.
Who is the trip for?
I honestly believe that if you are going to understand the words of the Bible you need to understand the world of the Bible. Because of that, I long for every Christ-follower to get to travel to Israel at some point 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.
We are opening this trip up to those inside and outside of New Story Church. You are welcome to join us no matter where you are from.
How can I get more information?
I have a few hundred printed brochures that we can share with you and we will have a website up quickly with registration and more information. 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will find a time to connect to talk about the trip. I’d love to have you join me in Israel.
