You’re Invited on a 10-Day Tour of the Holy Land

"Happy are the people … whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. … They go from strength to strength; each appears before God in Zion." Psalm 84:5-7

Friends, you and I have the opportunity to go on a pilgrimage together. I want to invite you to experience Israel with me in October 2023. We are going to eat food that Jesus ate. We are going to sit in places where Jesus sat. We are going to look up and see stars in the sky that Jesus knew. I want to journey with you into the biblical world to gain a better understanding of what the biblical authors meant and what the biblical characters did in the stories that we read in Scripture. 

Together, we will enter into an incarnational space. The Bible is not only the best story that's ever been told, it is also the truest. Let's go lay hold of it together.
