WHEN IS THE TRIP?

NOV 7 - 16, 2016

WHAT MAKES THIS TRIP DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TRIPS TO ISRAEL?

1. It's free. From the hotels we stay in to the restaurants we eat in, you will be well taken care of. The only cost for you is covering your roundtrip to New York. From there we will leave for Israel and the rest is on us.

2. This isn't the typical Israel trip. You will see many of the biblical sites. But you will also get to dialogue with some of the most renowned leaders in Israel.

3.  The community. This isn't you having to lead your church or organization. It's you getting to relax and connect with other incredible leaders across the nation.

4. Time to explore and enjoy the country. During the day our schedule will be filled with unforgettable moments in Israel, but as the sun goes down you will have the freedom to enjoy the country as you please.

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THE TRIP?

The goal of this project is to give Christian leaders an edifying experience in the Holy Land. It's a fact-finding trip, a mission, and a pilgrimage rolled into one. We have seen how much encouragement and hope Christian visitors bring to the people living in this land and, further, we know how a trip to the Holy Land will deepen our faith and connection with the life and teachings of Jesus.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER REQUIREMENTS OF ME?

There are no other expectations or requirements of you. We want to give you and your fellow leaders a chance to bond with each other, to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, and to see the land of the Bible for yourselves. And while these trips are under the umbrella of Christians United for Israel, we don't require membership in our organization or an endorsement of the government of Israel. We will not use your names or image without your express permission.

CAN I GET ANY WORK DONE WHILE ON THE TRIP?

Of course. You will have wi-fi in your hotel as well as on the bus.

WILL I BE ABLE TO PRACTICE MY CHRISTIAN FAITH?

We intend for this trip to be a shared spiritual experience. You will absolutely be able to worship, pray, and study the Bible in the places we visit, including the Mt. of Beatitudes, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Western Wall, Via Dolorosa, and more.

ISRAEL COLLECTIVE IS A “PRO-ISRAEL” ORGANIZATION. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN TERMS OF WHAT I WILL SEE ON THIS TRIP?

CUFI’s support for Israel is based on the biblical teaching to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and to speak up for the least of these. We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in peace and security in their homeland of Israel. And, in a region where Christians are being violently persecuted, we are grateful to Israel for protecting its Christian population. We do not take positions on the peace process, the settlements or other controversial issues.

While CUFI’s central mission is to love and support Israel and the Jewish people, this is by no means at the expense of any other people group or ministry, nor is it motivated by any end-times scenarios. We simply want to love the people of this region like Jesus loved them. We want to bring healing to a hurting people, and to build stronger relationships between American Christians and the people of the Holy Land.

WILL I HEAR ARAB VOICES AS WELL?

Absolutely. You will hear from top Arab personalities including reporter Khaled Abu Toameh, Pastor Naim Khoury, Father Gabriel Naddaf and Dr. Massad Barhoum. You will hear from Jewish Israelis such as author Yossi Klein HaLevi. You will have a chance to visit the regions under Palestinian Authority rule, such as Bethlehem. Although we cannot safely enter the Gaza strip (a Hamas-controlled territory), you will receive a briefing and overview from the town of Sderot, Israel, on the Gaza border.

IS THIS TRIP SAFE?

This is our seventh trip to take leaders from across the nation to Israel. Israel is a vibrant, tolerant, diverse place. While there is often tension and conflict in this region, every location we are visiting is safe and frequently visited by American travelers. We have taken every measure to ensure you have an enjoyable and safe trip.
