You’re invited to join us on a 11 day, all-inclusive Israel Study Tour.

You will be immersed in the land and lessons of the Bible as you’re led on a journey through Scripture while your local guide and driver will bring the past and present culture of Israel alive to all your senses.

Unlike other Holy Land tours, this tour is solely focused on bringing Scripture to life through first-hand experiences in the places the stories actually happened. An all-inclusive trip you’ll be free to focus on each moment without worrying about lodging, tips, transportation, entrance fees, food or water.

What is a GTI Study Tour?

We’ve built into our study tours everything you need for an enjoyable and educational trip. We want you to be fully focused on the lessons and experiences you’ll encounter, and not be distracted by local tipping practices, transportation arrangements, or meal planning.

We believe that as a Study Tour participant you’re not a mere tourist—you’re an investment! This is evident from the moment you book your trip, through to the time you return home to share what you’ve learned with your friends and family.

Our seasoned guides and ministry partners do so much more than handle the details and keep things on schedule. Our local guides have personal experience and intimate knowledge of the places and events you’ll examine, and our ministry partner’s teachers have a shepherd’s heart and a passion for God’s word.

The guides have been so personable and so knowledgeable and so friendly. There's just never a bad day for these guys. They make you very comfortable throughout the trip.

We got to walk the land and it made our bibles come alive, and my son being 17, he needed it to come alive. It solidified his foundation in his faith.

— Joey

GTI has done such a great job of taking care of everything... allowing us to feel at home and really focus on the things we needed to from the very beginning.

John McKinzie

Lead Pastor, Hope Fellowship

John McKinzie has been in full-time pastoral ministry for more than 30 years. He is the Lead Pastor of Hope Fellowship located in Frisco, Texas. In the 17 years of its existence, the church has consistently grown—now ministering to over 6000 people each week across three campuses. While serving as a youth pastor at a church in Nashville, TN God began to create a desire in his heart to plant a new church in Frisco, Texas. Hope Fellowship was founded in January 2000. There were 52 people in attendance at their first meeting which took place at Hillcrest Day School. God has consistently grown the church, and because of John’s visionary leadership, the people of Hope Fellowship have become a group of believers striving to impact their local community and the world with the love of Jesus. The phrase that’s heard the most around Hope is “If lost people matter to God, then they should matter to us!” John and his wife, Melissa have four kids and reside in Frisco, TX.
