Laci and I, as well as Jeremy and Faith Godwin, are excited to invite you to join us on this trip of a lifetime to the Holy Land! You will see the ancient construction sites of the Holy Land come to life right before your eyes! As well, our team will be hosted by Teach Amy Flattery, the Center for Holy Lands Studies Director.

An ancient brotherhood of builders goes back to 1446 B.C. when Bezalel and Oholiab were specifically chosen as designers and builders to build something that had never been built before, The Tabernacle. Each day we will visit the Holy Land sites you have always dreamed of visiting, as well as a special “Builders Highlight.” We’ll step into the days of old and see first-hand some of the handiwork of these early builders! See you in Israel!
