Israel 2019 Pastors Tour

2019 ISRAEL FAM TRIP FOR PASTORS, SPOUSES & STAFF

JANUARY 22-31, 2019

Our Familiarization (FAM) Tour of Israel is designed to acquaint pastors with the Holy Land at greatly reduced rates. For our 2019 Pastors Tour, we’ve planned an inspiring 10-day journey (not the short “overview tour” some companies offer) through the land where Jesus lived, taught, performed miracles, died and rose from the dead. What Is A Pastors “FAM” Tour? If you are a pastor who has never been to Israel, or hasn’t gone recently, we invite you to come with us and visit this amazing land for yourself…and you may bring your spouse or a staff member with you. Visiting some 40 major biblical and historical sites of the Holy Land, you will stand atop Mount Carmel, visit the Mount of Beatitudes, sail on the Sea of Galilee, enter the Empty Tomb, walk the streets of Old Jerusalem, and much more. Check out the 10-day FAM Itinerary. Our Pastors FAM Tour rates are approximately one-third the cost of many regular comparable tours. Of course, space is limited, so save the dates now and plan to join us.

Pastors are not asked to sign a contract or agreement and are in no way obligated to future travel. We believe pastors will love their experience so much that they will want to return in the future with their own group. If a pastor returns with a group of at least 15 paying passengers within 18 months (not the usual 12), we will refund $1000 of their FAM tour cost. FAM Tour Qualifications & Benefits.

2018 FAM TOUR REPORT 

Presbyters and spouses of the Southern New England District

Ed Hill Tours offers our special Pastors Tour of Israel every January, and the 2018 tour was our largest Pastors Tour ever! This year’s tour was made up of two groups with over 50 pastors and spouses. The “Red Bus” was comprised of presbyters of the Southern New England District of the Assemblies of God, led by District Superintendent Bob Wise and one of Israel’s top guides, Shlomo Eyal. The “Blue Bus” was made up of pastors from all over the nation from several denominations. Another top Israeli guide, Gershon Priewer, guided this group. and EHT owners Meredith Hill Page and Richard Page escorted the entire tour. Several pastors have already scheduled to return with groups from their congregations.

“First rate experience. All the accommodations were great, and everything was very well planned. Our Israeli guide and driver obviously had a lot of clout with everyone we met, which says a lot. Richard and Meredith went out of their way to make sure everything was the best it could be. I’ll be sharing my experience with a number of pastors in Louisiana and I’ll have no problem recommending the Pastors FAM trip. My wife and I plan on returning to Israel next year with Ed Hill Tours.” Pastor Ken Sifford

“Just came back from a Pastor’s Familiarization Tour of Israel. What a wonderful company to tour Israel with. Organized, friendly, not a care in the world. Was able to go to Israel and do what I was there to do without worrying about any details. First class people and company with a great heart for God and for pastors.”  Pastor Gary Underwood
