You’re invited to join us on a 13 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.

Lead Pastor, Highland Park Community Church

Welcome to the landing page for Highland Park Community Church's in depth bible study tour of the Holy Land. We are so excited about the opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime together. Travel with us through both the Old Testament and New. We invite you to join us on atop of Mt. Carmel where God demonstrated His power in the presence of all of Israel. Walk through En Gedi, the famous place of David's hiding from Saul. Follow the path through the wilderness and capture the sights and sounds Israel would have experienced during their 40 year stay in the wilderness. Sit with us in a tent of a bedouin much like Abraham. It's going to be a trip of a lifetime as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus through the cities of Capernaum, Chorazin, Bethsaida and more. We'll explore the ancient city of Jerusalem, walk the tunnels of Hezekiah, climb what is believed to be Golgatha, and receive communion near the garden tomb. You can expect this and much much more. Our Tour guide is one of the finest throughout the entire land. You'll return home with a fresh perspective and the words in your bible will come to life in a fresh new way. Everyone who goes to the Holy Land always looks forward to the opportunity to return. We look forward to sharing this experience together.
