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.

Rob Kranz

Trip Leader, Stepping into the Jordan

Rob has been teaching the Bible for more than 30 years. In 2018 he decided to leave a successful career as a software executive to study the Bible. His first stop was Israel, where he lived for a year earning a Graduate Certificate in Biblical History and Geography from Jerusalem University College. Rob then completed his MA in Old Testament at Abilene Christian University and a Master of Theology (ThM) at Southern Methodist University’s Perkins School of Theology. Rob is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at SMU’s Graduate Program of Religious Studies.

Rob's passion is helping people see the Bible come to life in its original context. He is excited to share the Land of the Bible to ignite that passion in others to help them live more fully into God's calling for their lives.

Rob has been married to his wife, Amy, for 34 years. They have two adult sons and live in Dallas, TX. Rob blogs about his faith journey at https://www.steppingintothejordan.com.
