You’re invited to join us on a 10 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.

Roc Bottomly

Roc Bottomly came to Christ as a college student at the Air Force Academy through the ministry of The Navigators. Since then, his passion has been following Jesus and fulfilling His commission to “Go… make disciples.” After his years as an Air Force pilot, Roc graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary and has been the Lead Pastor of four churches over the past 36 years. He recently passed the reins as Lead Pastor of Our Lord’s Community Church in Oklahoma City to focus on coaching pastors and discipling men… and leading study trips to Israel, something he and his wife Bev love to do because they have found these trips to be so life changing! Their message is simple and impassioned: “If you’ve never been, come on! You’ll experience the Bible as the early disciples did - with all their senses!”
