Study Tours to Israel and Turkey

We currently offer study tours in even-numbered years (2024, 2026, 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 link above) to be the first to know when we release information about upcoming tours. Any currently available tours will also be posted here.

Join the BEMA Slack Community

The BEMA Slack is a great place to discuss the podcast, share ideas, and build community. Maybe you haven’t been able to find a local discussion group, or your group has just started but you want to talk about current episodes. With designated channels to discuss episodes from each session, as well as upcoming trips, discipleship, and other topics, there’s a place to go deeper with your fellow podrishioners.
