“Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.” ~Psalm 84:5
Holy Land Tour for Seminary Credit with Dr. Warren Gage
We invite you to join us as we take a life-changing study tour. People from all over the world come to Israel to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and see places they have read about in the Bible. When you come to Israel you will not only visit powerful historic sites, but you will experience the fresh footsteps that Jesus makes today. Just as Christs’ encounter with people left them forever changed, you too can experience the powerful presence of Christ a fresh in your own life. You will see the places where Jesus walked, Old Testament history was made and Bible prophecy was fulfilled and will be fulfilled in the future. This entire tour is not just any tour; it is a faith-building and learning experience. We have already begun to pray for the group that God will draw together on this spiritual pilgrimage. We look forward to seeing you in the Holy Land with us.
Come Join Us, Blessings,
Dr. Warren Gage and Rev. Tom Hendrikse
