Are you ready to go on an adventure of a lifetime? If so, grab your calendars! The 2022 Holy Land Tour will be here before we know it! The next trip is scheduled for March 8-20, 2022. Our hope is to have at least fifty people join Dr. Matthew Mitchell on the journey of a lifetime! 


One special opportunity for the Holy Land Trip in 2022 will be the trip’s dates coinciding with many local area schools’ spring break. High schoolers would only have to miss three to four days of school to experience the trip. No matter if you take your own child or a grandchild, the memories you share will never be forgotten. The trip will be open to students in HIGH SCHOOL only. Rev. Heather Morris, Director of Student Ministries will be traveling with us, so special moments for youth will be available on the trip! 

TRIP SCHEDULE

  • Wednesday, March 9, 2022: Arrive in Tel Aviv and begin the tour. Sites to include: The City of Joppa and Simon The Tanner’s Home. Tremendous views of the Mediterranean Sea. Check into the hotel, dinner with the group, and prepare for our first full day in Israel. 
  • Thursday, March 10: First stop is Caesarea By the Sea, where our group will walk the ruins of the ancient seaport built before the time of Jesus. This is the same seaport where the Apostle Paul would have embarked on his journey to Rome. From there, travel by motorcoach to Mt. Carmel and witness the site where Elijah defeated the 450 Prophets of Baal, view the valley of Armageddon, drive through Nazareth where Jesus spent most of his life, stop for a view from the Mt. of Precipice, and then travel to the Sea of Galilee. 
  • Friday & Saturday, March 11-12: Explore the area of upper Galilee and visit many sites from both the New and Old Testaments.You will even be able to ride a boat across the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus and Peter walked on water. You will also be able to remember your baptism at the Jordan River and travel to the place where Jesus cast the demonic into the heard of swine on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee. This region is where many of the stories of Jesus begin to come to life in a whole new way! 
  • Sunday & Monday, March 13-14: Travel to the Dead Sea and stop at Beth Shean, an ancient Roman City; pass by Jericho and visit Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. On day two, the group will visit Masada’s ancient fortress and the three waterfalls of Ein Gedi. Ein Gedi is where David wrote some of the Psalms and hid from King Saul in ancient caves. 
  • Tuesday, March 15: Visit the land of the Philistines and journey to Jerusalem. Experience the stark difference between Northern and Southern Israel. The landscape could not be more different from the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea area. During the day, we will make a special stop at the same brook where David gathered five stones before his battle with Goliath in I Samuel 17. Bring a plastic bag and take a rock or two home from this special place. 
  • Wednesday, March 16 - Saturday, March 19: Jerusalem! A whole new adventure begins! 
  • Saturday, March 19: Depart for OKC that evening.
