Israel Multisite Pastors Tour

July 10, 2018


One of the highlights of being a pastor is the opportunity to experience the Holy Land with your church family.

Since my first visit to Israel in 1973, I’ve had the privilege of leading several tours to Israel. I would like to invite you to have the same life-changing experience, but different than the typical church tour group.

In partnership with Morning Star Tours we have planned a special tour designed just for pastors of multisite churches. This deluxe 5-star tour is designed for pastors to discover, experience and engage Israel in an unconventional way that also prepares them to lead their own churches to the Holy Land.

What also makes this tour unique in addition to our first-class Israeli tour guide, is that Tom & JoAnn Doyle will be co-hosting the tour with me. Part-Indiana Jones, Billy Graham and James Bond, Tom and JoAnn’s involvement and knowledge of the past and present Middle East makes them an exceptional addition to this tour.

In addition to visiting the key historical and spiritual landmarks and sites, we will engage with Holocaust survivors, experience the Israeli Knesset, visit a Druze village and interact with Palestinians and new followers of Jesus in the West Bank.

This is ​NOT YOUR TYPICAL ISRAEL TOURIST TOUR in these three ways:

  • Staying in 5-star accommodations at half the typical price
  • Traveling exclusively with multisite church leaders (spouses welcome)
  • Experiencing what God has done in the past and what He is doing in the present!

Want to join other multisite church leaders on a tour of a lifetime?

Here’s the details:

  • When: February 4-15, 2019 (Mon-Fri, 1 Sunday away)
  • Who: Multisite church leaders (senior pastors, executive pastors, campus pastors)
  • Tour Hosts: Jim & Deryl Tomberlin, Tom & JoAnne Doyle
