Pastors Israel FAM Tour 2020

Pastors…Travel to the Land of the Bible for less than half the price of comparable tours.

January 28 – February 6, 2020 – Nonstop Boston to Tel Aviv  

Pastors tour cost – $1599 

Our Israel FAM (Familiarization) Tours are designed to offer pastors an opportunity to tour the Holy Land at significantly reduced prices. For our 2020 Pastors/Clergy Tour, we’ve planned an inspiring 10-day journey (not the 5 or 6-day “overview tour” some tour companies offer) to acquaint pastors with the land where Jesus lived, taught, performed miracles, died, and rose from the dead.

Pastors may bring a spouse and/or a staff member for just $2250. All prices are based on double occupancy. The additional cost for a single room (no roommate) is $595. We have only 20 seats at the pastors rate and space is available on a first come – first served basis. 

What Is A Pastors “FAM” Tour? If you are a pastor who has never been to Israel, or if you haven’t gone recently, we invite you to come with us to experience this amazing land for yourself. You will visit some 40 major biblical and historical sites in Israel: stand atop Mount Carmel, visit the Mount of Beatitudes, sail on the Sea of Galilee, and tour Masada via cable car. You will enter the empty Tomb, walk the streets of Old Jerusalem, pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, visit the Shepherd’s Fields in Bethlehem, and much more.

Pastors are NOT asked to sign any contract or agreement, and are in no way obligated to future travel. We believe pastors will be so inspired by their visit to the Land of the Bible, that they will want to return with members of their congregation. Pastors returning with at least 15 paying passengers within 18 months (most tour companies allow only 12), will receive a $1000 refund of their FAM tour cost. And pastors always receive free travel typically based on one free tour for every five paying passengers. 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 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
