HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD,

THE LORD IS ONE

This extraordinary trip will be led by pastor, Sam Andreades, who has spent extensive time not only studying and teaching Scripture, but also studying and traveling in Israel. He'll be joined by Headmaster Dr. Bob Cannon and the Dean of Students, who have worked together to plan this once in a lifetime experience. Join us and several of our amazing teachers as we together explore the land where much of Scripture took place, and our Savior came to in the fullness of time!

BLESSED IS GOD'S GLORIOUS MAJESTY

FOREVER AND EVER

Like God told Abram we will "go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you." Come with us and "gaze on this land with joy" and "go walk through the Land, describe it in writing, and return to me" like the spies did in Joshua. The 17-day itinerary is shaped by following the storyline of Scripture concentrating mainly on the life and times of Jesus. Scripture will come to life like never before after experiencing it first hand.
