2019 SUMMER - "AMAZING AND TRANSFORMATIONAL TIME IN ISRAEL"

It was ten straight 16-hour days—and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Together with our Covenant Journey tour team, I had the great joy of introducing 42 college-age Christian leaders to Israel on our 22nd Covenant Journey tour to the Holy Land, May 26-June 4. As always, it was an amazing time with an amazing group of young leaders. For many, the trip was transformational.

Covenant Journey gave these bright and talented college students an opportunity to have an immersive experience in Israel and to grow closer to God as they spent time in His land. Here are a few of their comments... (read more)

2018 SUMMER - "ISRAEL AT 70 - DRAMATIC CHANGE"

You and I are witnessing history in the Middle East where events are now moving at an accelerating pace. Israel's 70th anniversary as a modern nation state, President Trump's courageous and correct decision to pull out of the fatally flawed Iran nuclear deal, direct military conflict between Israel and Iran, and the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem are all historic events compressed into the space of mere weeks in April and May.
