Welcome aboard your international flight from JFK to Tel Aviv! It’s time to meet your new friends and dive into our long-awaited adventure in the Holy Land. Meals will be served onboard the flight.


You have arrived bright and early to Tel Aviv! Your feet are finally standing in the Holy Land. Our bliss bus will depart the airport and head straight to a beautiful overlook of the city where we will worship and praise our Savior! After our time there concludes, The Church of the Nativity and the Shepherd’s Field awaits us in Bethlehem. We will then head to our hotel for dinner. We will assemble gift bags we will be giving away over the next few days and then head to bed for a good night's rest.


Today is a day of LOVE! We will start off with morning devotions and worship, where we will bask in the affection of our Jesus before we board the bliss bus for a day of ministry in the refugee camps. We will host an art camp with the children, sing joyful worship and release the life-changing love of Jesus. We will spend the late afternoon and evening creating a love ambush for the widows of the camps, filled with food, music and celebration.


We will check out of our amazing hotel with a view in Bethlehem. It will be a scenic drive as we travel via the Mediterranean to Caesarea, the capital of the Roman post of Judea. It’s here, where we will worship and listen to powerful teachings as we visit its Roman port, Crusaders Moat, Roman theater and aqueduct. We will then continue to Muhraka on Mount Carmel where Elijah challenged Baal’s priests, on our way to Tiberias where we will check into our hotel.


It’s a day to celebrate breakthrough as we visit many sites in the Galilee region where Jesus demonstrated some of his most famous miracles. This includes the town of Capernaum, a boat ride on the Galilee lake, the Mount of Beatitudes and many other incredible sites.


We will check out of our fun Tiberias hotel and drive along the Golan Plateau for a magnificent view of upper Israel. If it’s been in your heart to be baptized in the Jordan River, today is your day as our group will have the opportunity to be baptized there. We’ll also make a special stop at Shiloh - the place where the Ark of the Covenant was housed for over 300 years, before heading to Ashdod to worship with a beautiful group of Messianic believers. We will land later that evening in Jerusalem, where we will rest our heads for the rest of the trip.


Next up we will visit the Jordan Crossing, worshiping together and receiving a powerful message from Georgian. Afterwards, we will visit and have lunch in Jericho, the world’s oldest city. From the excavated ruins of ancient Jericho, you can view the lush green Jordan Valley, Elisha’s Spring and the Mount of Temptation. We may have time for a float in the Dead Sea - so bring your swimming suit along if you want to take a float in these famous waters. We will end this incredibly full day by returning to Jerusalem.


Today, we will head back into Old City Jerusalem where we will pray and worship at Judaism’s holiest site: The Wailing Wall (The Western Wall). Our group will enjoy a mighty time in the Presence as we visit the Upper Room and other breathtaking sites in Old Jerusalem and hear a powerful teaching at the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives. You will literally feel as though you have walked into HIStory.


In the morning we will head to a special location and have the incredible opportunity to bless soldiers of the Israeli Army with a feast and party, where we will dance, sing and bless the men and women who serve. That evening we will celebrate the young people in Bethlehem by hosting a concert with their amazing orchestra. It will be a day you won’t easily forget. While the tension in Israel is real - within one day we will infuse the joy, hope and peace of God into the lives of that tension. He is the God of miracles!

DAY 10

“HE IS RISEN” will be the song in our hearts as we visit the Garden Tomb for a beautiful teaching and time of worship and communion together. We will fill the day with more amazing sites in the city and will close the evening with a special dinner together.

DAY 11

Free day in Jerusalem – Take your time today to explore the wonders of the city, revisit some of the places we have been, meditate on the goodness and beauty of all Jesus has done for us. Shop for some unique and special souvenirs. ENJOY! After a full day of exploring, we will gather for one more dinner together and then depart for Tel Aviv to catch our group's redeye flight back to JFK. Arriving home the afternoon of February 23rd, `our hearts will be filled with grateful wonder at all God did during our journey together in the Holy Land!

*Please note that we are committed to partnering with the Holy Spirit, thus this schedule is subject to change. Because we are traveling as such a large group, it’s important that you remain joyful and flexible throughout our entire journey and ready to embrace whatever adventure that God has in store for our team.

We can’t wait to meet you! Join us this February 2024!
