About the trip

October 15th-26th, 2019

Pastor David Colp invites you to experience the Holy Land in a similar way the disciples of Jesus experienced it.

You will have the chance to spend 10 days following Pastor David and our Rabbi, John Farwell, as they take us around biblical sites and teach us what it is like to be a disciple physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The chance to see these places first hand will provide profound and life-changing impact, as biblical stories come to life and you imagine the footsteps of Jesus. You will gain new perspectives of old bible stories as John re-tells these Old and New Testament tales in the geographical and cultural context in places like En Gedi, Qumran, Dead Sea, Jericho, Galilee, Nazareth, Mt. Carmel, Caesarea and Jerusalem.

John Farwell has been providing tours for hundreds of people to the Holy Land since 2005. He uses the rabbinical approach for teaching and touring, which he learned from his Rabbi, Ray Vander Laan who popularized this approach. You may have experienced some of Ray’s teaching through the video series “That the World May Know". John’s passion for the stories of the Bible and experience living in the Holy Land will enrich this tour and provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly walk in the footsteps of Jesus.
