Protestant Pilgrimages

Site Highlights

Mt Tabor

Join me where we’ll read from the Scriptures while standing at the very sites where the stories of the Bible actually took place thousands of years ago. Touring the length and breadth of the Land of Israel, you’ll connect with the origins of your own faith.

From renewing your baptism in the Jordan River to Holy Communion at the Garden Tomb, this will be the trip of a lifetime. Let’s walk where the Hebrew prophets and Jesus walked and pray where they prayed.

Join me on the highways of antiquity, the same paths taken by the Hebrew patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We’ll gaze at the Elah Valley where David confronted Goliath. We’ll ascend the Mount of Beatitudes and continue down to water’s edge at the Sea of Galilee. And we’ll marvel at the beauty of the earthly Jerusalem.

Tour Israel with me and see first hand the modern miracle of a re-born Jewish State.

Every tour can be customized to meet your needs and interests. Here are just a few of the places you’re likely to visit on a Protestant pilgrimage with me—in David’s Land.
