Israel Trip Information
We are returning to Israel in 2023! The dates are January 30 - February 9.
What are the airfare costs and payment schedule?
Airfare is purchased separately by the traveler. Prices vary depending on rates at time of purchase. Fares are estimated at $1,200 to $1,800. It is recommended that you purchase your airfare 90 days prior to trip departure. Please note that travel to Israel currently requires the purchase of travel insurance (more info will be provided).
What are the mandatory meetings that I have to attend?
Travelers will be required to attend one or two meetings prior to the trip, dates are TBD. In general, these meetings will focus on preparing for the trip, the process for entering/exiting the country, safety/security, what and how to pack, weather, traditions, spiritual aspects of our trip and how to best prepare to deepen and grow your faith.
Is this a mission trip?
No. While we’re always ‘on mission’ as followers of Christ, this is a personal discipleship trip intended to deepen your faith and your knowledge of significant events and places from Jesus’ time on earth, through first-hand experience. Ultimately, this trip will have a powerful impact on your faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
Do I need to get any shots?
Although Covid vaccinations are not required, please note that, as of now, a negative Covid test is required upon leaving Israel.
Can kids come?
Yes, we welcome children that are 12 years old or older. The same price applies.
Is it safe?
Yes. Security in Israel is the best in the world and utilizes the greatest technology. The economy of tourism is paramount for both sides, Israeli and Palestinian, so tourist areas are highly guarded and secure. Prior to the trip we will review all pertinent safety-related information. Additionally, tour leaders review Stratfor security insights daily to be aware of known security issues and to change the itinerary if needed.
Will there be fundraising opportunities for the trip?
No. Since this is not a mission trip, we will not be raising funds. Each individual will be responsible for securing their own payment apart from donations.
What happens if for some reason I can not go on the trip after I have already paid?
There will be an opportunity to get a full refund on your tour payment should you find you are unable to attend, the deadline for the full refund will be provided once your spot is secured. Airline tickets are purchased separately and are only refundable if you purchase travel insurance and if the reason for the refund falls within the insurance coverage.
Before we travel, will we learn more about what to pack, how to dress, Israeli traditions, etc?
Yes. Registered travelers will be required to attend an informational meeting to discuss topics such as: Preparing in advance for the trip (i.e. Passports, process at Passport control, process for exiting the country); Safety/security; What and how to pack; Weather.
