Study Tours to Israel and Turkey

We currently offer study tours in even-numbered years (2022, 2024, etc.) as Marty takes the odd-numbered years to be with family and have a rhythm of rest. We recommend signing up for the BEMA Messenger (using the form above) to be the first to know when we release information about upcoming tours. Any currently available tours will also be posted here.


BEMA Israel 2022 (Low-Contact) -//- March 20 – April 2

There are two items of importance. First, please make sure you watch our orientation video BEFORE registering.

Please know this trip is specifically designed for those who are unable to partake in our “full-contact,” physically strenuous trip in August 2022. The low-contact trip involves much less hiking and is a little cooler, but it will also be a different experience. If you are able, you will want to wait for our full-contact trip registration to open in the fall. Our full-contact trip includes 7–12 miles of hiking and 1,800+ feet of elevation change each day in what can be at least 110-degree desert heat. It is not for the faint of heart — but it is an enriching and rewarding experience. (If you would like to see the “full-contact” orientation for the sake of comparison, please find that video here.)

The orientation is almost an hour long, but it is designed to be informative and comprehensive; if you’re interested in going on the trip, we ask that you watch it in full to make an informed decision. We will be releasing information for our Turkey trip and our “full-contact” Israel trip (both in 2022) in the months to come.

LOW-CONTACT ISRAEL TRIP ORIENTATION

GTI Tours, our travel agency for the trips, will be handling all registration and payment details. Once you’ve watched the orientation above and you are ready to register, see more details and register for the trip.

NOTE: If you are not planning on receiving a COVID vaccine, we do not recommend signing up for any of our study tours at this time; international travel requirements may change, but this is how we are preparing based on the current restrictions and guidelines.

REGISTER FOR ISRAEL (LOW-CONTACT)


BEMA Turkey 2022 -//- June 6–18 (tentative dates)

We now have an orientation video for the Turkey trip in 2022, currently scheduled for June 6–18. This video will introduce you to everything you’ll need to know about signing up for the trip, which will require a $500 deposit to save your seat. The final cost (estimated to be $5000, give or take) and other details will be released with registration sometime in August.

There is no low-contact version of our Turkey trip as this tour is not nearly as physically strenuous. There are a few multi-mile hikes that some may have to sit out. You will want to be physically prepared for this trip, especially if you will be more challenged by the physical activity. This study tour is a focus on the New Testament; we’ll examine the context of Revelation in depth, as well as the ministry of Paul.

GTI, our travel agency for the trips, will be handling registration and payment. The orientation is almost an hour long, but it is designed to be informative and comprehensive; if you’re interested in going on the trip, we ask that you watch it in full to make an informed decision.

NOTE: If you are not planning on receiving a COVID vaccine, we do not recommend signing up for any of our study tours at this time; international travel requirements may change, but this is how we are preparing based on the current restrictions and guidelines.

TURKEY TRIP ORIENTATION


BEMA Israel 2022 (Full-Contact) -//- July 31 – August 13 (tentative dates)

The dates for this trip are currently scheduled for July 31 – August 13, 2022. We expect to have more information to share in September for this trip.
